The Tintenpalast (German for "Ink Palace") is the seat of both chambers of the Namibian legislature, the National Council and the National Assembly. It is located in the Namibian capital of Windhoek. The Tintenpalast, which is located just north of Robert Mugabe Avenue, was designed by German architect Gottlieb Redecker and built by the company Sander & Kock between 1912 and 1913 out of regional materials as an administration building for the German government, which colonized Namibia at the time. As an allusion to the large ink usage by the workers in the building, it was named "Tintenpalast" or "Ink Palace". The building is surrounded by the Parliament Gardens which is very popular among the inhabitants of Windhoek.

NA Parliament


The National Assembly – the Republic of Namibia's lower house – holds its sessions at the so-called "Ink Palace". Originally designed as an administration centre, this building is a typical example of German colonial architecture. It was also during that period that the German people playfully nicknamed the building Ink Palace on account of the enormous amount of ink used by the officials working there.
