HOTEL HEINITZBURG RATES: Hotel Heinitzburg Rates

Namibia, the land between two deserts, is a country representing the true character of Africa enhanced by the widespread influence of various European and African settlers who have helped to shape its modern history. The Hotel Heinitzburg complements traditional African friendliness and beauty with excellent European culinary art and a world-class wine cellar.

When Count von Schwerin commissioned Castle Heinitzburg for his fiance, Margarethe von Heinitz in 1914, love was his inspiration, elegance was his achievement. In 1996, the castle was transformed into a privately-owned, luxury hotel. Today, its efficient and very friendly owners Beate and Jürgen Raith, have preserved and complimented the Count's vision to combine comfort with luxurious charm.

The Heinitzburg Hotel is situated on "Luxury Hill", only five minutes drive from the city centre, overlooking Namibia's capital city, Windhoek and its remarkable highlands. The hotel pays wonderful attention to detail; everything from the four-poster beds to the hand made wooden furniture is perfect. The personal attention you receive from your host is also something special.

Hotel Heinitzburg stands head and shoulders above any other accommodation in Windhoek, and will make your stay in Windhoek a memorable experience.
