Kaiserliche Realschule information
Windhoek’s first German primary school was built in 1908, and opened the following year with a class size of 74 students. Notice the curious turret with wooden slats, which was designed to provide ventilation for European children unaccustomed to the African heat. The building later housed Windhoek’s first German high school and an English middle school, and today it's the administrative headquarters of the National Museum of Namibia.
