Swakopmund in Namibia

Spread the love

In Namibia, Swakopmund is a charming German town situated between the wild Skeleton Coast and the Namib Desert. The colorful half-timbered architecture and German-speaking locals blended with modern Namibian culture make for a fascinating destination to spend a few days. Swakopmund is affectionately known as the ‘Gateway to Adventure’ for its close proximity to so many adrenaline-pumping activities like skydiving, sandboarding, quad biking, and hot air ballooning. And once your heart has stopped racing, grab your camera and go on a photography tour or duck into a quintessential German bakery for a strudel and a coffee, it doesn’t matter where you are in town, Swakopmund embodies the concept of Gemütlichkeit (the German concept of warmth and hospitality).
