Windhoek is the Capital of Namibia. Windhoek or Windhuk is located in central Namibia at 1,600 metres (5,245 ft) above sea level in the Khomas Highland plateau area. Windhoek was founded in 1890 by Imperial German army Major Curt von François. This was for the second time because it was destroyed by multiple wars and hostilities.

There's even the famous Oktoberfest.
