Windhoek

Font Size Increase Font Size Decrease Print Page Send to Friend Add to Favorites

Windhoek is the capital and largest city of the Republic of Namibia. It is located in central Namibia in the Khomas Highland plateau area around 1,700 meters (5,600 ft) above sea level. The 2001 census determined Windhoek's population was 233,529. A population influx from all over Namibia has caused researchers to estimate the figure to be well over 300,000.

Due to its relative size, Windhoek is even more so than other capitals the social, economic, and cultural centre of the country. Virtually every national enterprise has its headquarters here. The University of Namibia is here, as is the country's only theatre, all ministry head offices, and all major media and finance bodies. City of Windhoek's budget nearly equals that of all other Namibian local authorities combined.
