As a member of the Relaix and Châteaux group, Heinitzburg Hotel is one of the best in Windhoek.
Occupying a lofty vantage point with views over the city to the Auas and Komas Hochland Mountains, the hotel is a restored love castle built by Count von Schwerin for his fiancé, Margarethe von Heinitz, in 1914.
Much of the colonial grandeur has been emulated and the elegance, service and sophistication would have bowled young Margarethe over. The 16 en suite rooms have four-poster iron beds, period furniture and modern amenities.
The hotel has two restaurants, serving hâute cuisine, an intimate wine cellar and fabulous function room in the original castle. The pool and landscaped garden overlook the city and its surrounding mountains.
