Kranzberg railway station
|Owned by||TransNamib Railway|
Kranzberg railway station is a railway station in Namibia between the towns of Karibib and Usakos. It is part of the TransNamib Railway. At Kranzberg the railway line from Windhoek splits; one line continues westwards to Swakopmund and Walvis Bay, the other one continues north-eastwards towards Omaruru and Tsumeb.
The Windhoek—Swakopmund line, commissioned during Imperial Germany's colonial rule of German South West Africa, reached Kranzberg in 1902. In 1914 this line was extended to Walvis Bay. In 1906 Kranzberg was connected to Otavi, a line that was later extended to Grootfontein (1908), Outjo (1921), and Oshikango (2004).
Kranzberg is connected to the south and east of Namibia via Windhoek.
