Hohenzollernhaus (House Hohenzollern)
Click to view map
Constructed about 10 years after the founding of the port of Swakopmound, the building is one of the oldest surviving in the town. Like many of the building of this time the neo- Baroque style was a direct import of Bavarian styles from Germany. For many years the building was a hotel (known as the Hohenzollern Hotel).
The building was declared a National Monument in 1972 while Namibia was still under South African control.
In 1988 the building was restored and converted into apartments by ROXIN.
