The uniqueness of the Seeheim Hotel and its original setting has been captured in three feature films. Visitors from across the world delight in the rustic splendour of the stone hotel nestling in the desert.
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. It had a railway station, several churches and shops, a school, three hotels and a flourishing residential area. Then in the late fifties, the town gradually fell into decline. The school closed down and the residents began to leave.During 1974 the B4 was re-directed and the Seeheim Hotel finally shut shop. 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 foothills.
