Lüderitz


The 1909 built "Goerke Haus" at LüderitzLüderitzThe Lüderitz area is home to a wide variety of aquatic birds. Large numbers of flamingos, cormorants and seagulls inhabit the shallow lagoon. The sheer isolation and the distinctly German colonial architecture of Lüderitz and Kolmanskop, once the focal point of a glittering diamond rush, bears witness to one of the most vivid periods in Namibian history.

The Lüderitz Peninsula is characterised by numerous bays, lagoons and unspoilt stretches of beach. At Diaz Point a replica of Bartolomeu's Padrao can be seen, while a plaque on Shark Island commemorates the German merchant, Adolf Lüderitz. At Sturmvogelbucht the remains of an old Norwegian whaling station can be seen.

Deserted houses in KolmanskopKolmanskopThe Sperrgebiet and the Bogenfels: The Diamond Area south of Lüderitz is rocky coast and desert with acces to features such as the Bogenfels Rock Arch (55 m high rock arch which juts into the sea), the Atlas Bay fur seal colony and old diamond diggings and ghost towns representing former endeavours of German poineers.
