Built from local rock in 1896 to house Schutztruppe (German colonial forces), it was converted into a hotel in the roaring twenties, and became the pivotal place of activities as the town of Seeheim prospered and grew.
A little-known fact is that during the forties and fifties Seeheim was
larger and of greater prominence than Keetmanshoop.
After standing empty for 30 years, Zirkie Kloppers renovated the building and brought it back to life. The furniture(all of which is brand new and made by Zirkie himself), the curtains and other fittings as well as the new outbuildings for additional accommodation have been styled to suite the turn-of-the-century architecture and atmosphere of the original stone building.
For visitors interested in the historical aspects of the surrounding,
there are ruins to explore, while the activities of the Schutztruppe are
evidenced by an evocative of rusting ammunition scattered in the surrounding
Close to Seeheim is the farm Naiams which runs down the Fish River. The
tarred road to Lüderitz runs through this farm. Over a 100 years
ago this farm belonged to an Englishman named Wheeler who lived with his
family in a house made of stone and clay.
There was also a German Garrison stationed at Naiams. The ruins of the fort are still there. The wagons had to pass through very hilly terrain and the Nama Hottentots used to lay ambush for the wagons. Hence the presence of troops.
About 10km from Seeheim the Fish River pushes through a narrow gorge
and a spectacular waterfall forms and the river falls into the Fish River
The “Slangkop” (snakes head) mountain is situated close to
Seeheim. During the Nama Hottentot and the German Forces war, the Hottentots
gave it that name.
