Is the deserted German village of Kolmanskop haunted?

IT’S one thing to “happen upon” a deserted town, but it’s another thing entirely when it’s an abandoned German-style mining village — in the Namib Desert.

Urban explorers and adventurers are making their way to Kolmanskop, an old diamond mining town.

It was deserted in 1954 and is now filled with sand and, supposedly, haunted spirits. Kolmanskop’s uniquely European architecture makes its hospital, casino and theatre stand out amid the Namibian sand.

While it’s debatable how haunted Kolmanskop is, one thing is for sure: due to the climate of the desert, this village won’t be disappearing anytime soon.
