    Built in the early 20th century for the head of the Namibian diamond company. Finished in 1910 it was cutting edge design. It has passed through several hand over the last 100 years but has been well restored and is well worth a visit. There are not many attractions in Luderitz but this one is definitely worth the walk up the hill

    This beautifully restored old home is one of the finest in Lüderitz and a must see when visiting here. It is located just around the block from Felsenkirche, the old German Lutheran Church on Diamantberg Street. Is was built in 1910 on diamond hill and is run today as a museum and open for tours.

    I have a ghost story about Goerke house.
    I once stayed in that house, completely alone for a week. It involved someone climbing the stairs late at night, as mentioned, I was alone....

    Locals believe that God pressed a hand down on the rockface of the Richtersveld, leaving a large handprint on the mountains.

    Eventually I worked out the ghost footsteps was a shower that was dripping. I believed in a ghost for a good few minutes though...
    Beautiful old house.

    Correct! Over to you...

    Used to be called Springbok Cafe, now a "restaurant".

    Looks like a tired 1970's cafe when you walk in but when you look at the back you find one of the best collections of travel and history books on the Northern Cape, as well as an amazing mineral rock collection.

    Always stop over here on our way to the Orange or Namibia. Must have bought over 40 books from them over the years: Several books by Gert Sarrisam, Namibian geology, Kalahari flowering plants, Guide to KTP, Einiqualand by AB Smith, Living deserts by CM Dean, books on the Richtersveld, etc.
