Brief information about the Windhoek

In the background is that the Auas Mountains (2016) Windhoek (, Afrikaans: [ˈvəntɦuːk], German: ['vɪnthʊk]) is the capital and largest city of Namibia. It's located in central Namibia at the Khomas Highland plateau region, at approximately 1,700 metres (5,600 ft) above sea level, nearly exactly at the nation 's geographical center.

The populace of Windhoek at 2020 was 431,000 that is growing due to an influx from around Namibia. The city developed in the site of a hot spring called the pastoral communities. It developed rapidly after Jonker Afrikaner, Captain of the Orlam, settled here in 1840 and built a stone church for his community.

In the years following, multiple wars and hostilities caused the neglect and destruction of their settlement. Windhoek was founded a second time in 1890 by Imperial German Army Major Curt von François, once the Empire colonised the territory.

Windhoek is the social, economical, political, and cultural centre of the country. Political body every Namibian enterprise, cultural and educational association are headquartered there.
