Lüderitz Town Council Job Vacancies 2023
Welcome to Lüderitz
The colourful and unique town of Luderitz in Namibia is perched where the rocky Atlantic Ocean coastline meets the Namib Desert. It has weathered the frenzy of a diamond rush in Namibia and the rise and fall of many fortunes over the years, but kept its sleepy old world atmosphere on this cool and often foggy Atlantic coast. These days Luderitz is known for great seafood – you can feast on fresh rock lobster, oysters and mussels. This coastal town in Namibia has unusual brightly painted German Art Deco architecture and interesting historical buildings to photograph and explore.
Nearby in the Forbidden Zone (Sperrgebiet), Namibia, lies the abandoned ghost town of Kolmanskop, which is almost covered in Namib Desert sand and a reminder of the past. For a treasure hunt of a different kind, you can go in search of a crystallised stone called a “Desert Rose” in Luderitz, Namibia. Sailing and boating activities on the lagoon are popular, as well as scenic walks and drives where you can see wild desert horses and dramatic landscapes.
