Originally built in 1914 by Count von Schwerin for his fiancée, Margarethe von Heinitz, Hotel Heinitzburg was a testament to his love. It has stayed true to the Count's original design, adding in luxury touches that Margarethe herself would undoubtedly have been pleased with.
Travellers love the fact that the hotel makes a wonderful rest stop before they set off to explore Namibia. But while you're here, be sure to explore the colorful street market in Post Street Mall. Or visit historic buildings dating back to German colonial times.
Get back in time to snag a seat on the Garden Terrace, where you can have cocktails while watching the incredible South African sunsets. Or dine on French and international fare at Leo's at the Castle (which, by the way, may have the country's largest private wine cellar). The Knight's Room is great for special occasions and private gatherings, and showcases artwork reflecting the history of the local region.
