Characteristics

Description

Swakopmund was founded in 1892, by Captain Curt von François.

On 4 August 1892 the crew of a gunboat named Hyäne (German for Hyena) erected two beacons on a large dune, probably in the vicinity of the present lighthouse. This is regarded as the founding date of Swakopmund.
