Litfass-Saule

sights / Architecture

Lonely Planet review

In 1855, the Berlin printer Litfass came up with the notion of erecting advertising pillars on German street corners. For the citizens of early Swakopmund, they became a common source of information and advertising. The remaining example, Litfass-Saule , sits on the corner of Daniel Tjongarero and Nathaniel Maxulili.
