Windhoek, the gateway and capital of the country, lies 1689m above sea level, embedded by the 'Khomas Highland.' Hotel Heinitzburg is situated on the 'Luxury Hill,' 5 minutes drive from the city centre, overlooking the capital and its remarkable highlands.
Commissioned in 1914 by Count von Schewerin for his fiancée, Margarethe von Heinitz. In 1966 this German castle was turned into a private owned hotel with 10 rooms. Additional 6 rooms, a gourmet restaurant 'Leo's at the Castle', a new kitchen and a wine cellar as well as a new swimming pool next to the Pool Side Deluxe Rooms were finished in May 2000.
When the Count commissioned Castle Heinitzburg, love was his inspiration, elegance was his achievement. We too were inspired, and have preserved and complimented his vision to combine comfort with luxurious charm.
Beate Raith and her team at this Namibia Hotel, look forward to the honour of welcoming you personally to her unique brand of hospitality. The Raith family name has long been associated with a tradition of excellence in hospitality and exquisite cuisine.
