The adventure continues: see what you can catch with a fishing tour, look for gifts at Kristall Galerie, admire the landmark architecture of Hohenzollernhaus, and stroll through Dune 7.

Plan my day in Swakopmund using traveler tips and tourist information provided by Inspirock.

Bern, Switzerland to Swakopmund is an approximately 17-hour combination of train and flight. You can also fly. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 1 hour traveling from Bern to Swakopmund.
