Groß Barmen

The hot springs Groß Barmen is situated 25 km in the west to Okahandja. There are a nice camping-ground, places for grilling and small houses for rent.


1844 here a station of the "Rheinische Mission" was built, you can see today only the ruins of it.


The 65°C hot water of  the hot springs comes into the indoor swimming-pool. The cooler water comes into the outdoor swimming-pool, which is surrounded with palms.

Indoor swimming-pool

For bird watcher it is a good place, because the whole year there is water and so you can find a lot of  bird species including waterfowl.
