Yes, Kolmanskop is definitely an interesting place to visit in Namibia. The ghost town was founded in the 1900s during the diamond rush and quickly grew into an important center of the diamond industry. However, with the decline of diamond production in the 1950s, the town was gradually abandoned and fell into disrepair.

Today Kolmanskop is a popular destination for tourists interested in history and architecture. You can explore the abandoned buildings and get a glimpse into the life of diamond prospectors in early colonial Namibia. The ghost town surrounded by sand dunes also offers photographers unique motifs and an eerie atmosphere.

Some of the well-preserved buildings include the casino, school, hospital, and movie theater, as well as some of the luxurious homes of the diamond seekers. Visitors can also go to the former diamond office where diamonds were sorted and valued. An interesting fact is that Kolmanskop was one of the first cities in the world with a streetcar.

There are also guided tours led by knowledgeable guides who explain the history and architecture of the city. For photographers, the tours are especially recommended, as they offer the opportunity to visit the ghost town early in the morning or in the evening, when the light is best and the dunes and buildings create a mystical atmosphere.
