The Ink Palace??? I love the name of this place. The Parliament Building of Namibia is called the Tintenpalast , which means "Ink Palace" in German. It is a large building that houses both chambers of the Namibian legislature, the National Council and the National Assembly in the capital Windhoek. It was designed by the architect Gottlieb Redecker and built by the company Sander & Kock between 1912 and 1913 out of local materials as an administration building for the German colonial government of the time. It got its name from employees of the building from the vast amounts of ink the government used inside.

Directions: Just north of Robert Mugabe Avenue in Windhoek.
