Attractions:

Duwisib Castle, Namibia's most famous and extraordinary building is just 30 kilometers north of Kronenhof Lodge. Built in 1909, by Baron Captain Heinrich Von Wolf, the castle stands on the high ground looking southwards onto a valley. It is situated in semi-arid lands, 70kms south-west of Maltahohe. After the German-Nama war, the 'Baron' and his wife commissioned an architect to build a castle that would 'reflect Von Wolf's commitment to the German Military cause. While travelling to Europe in 1914, the First World War broke out, and on their arrival the Baron rejoined the German army, but was killed at the battle of the Somme in 1916. His wife never returned to Duwisib Castle, settled in Switzerland, and after the war sold the castle to a Swedish family.

One of the legends around the castle is that the Baron's horses escaped into the Namib Desert and where responsible for the Namib Desert Feral horses which are found in the region.
