Gross Barmen is a hot spring and a popular destination. It is located 100 km from Windhoek and 24 km east of Okahandja and is a state-owned recreation area called Gross Barmen Hot Springs Resort.
The hot mineral springs have a temperature of 65 °C and are cooled down to 40 °C for the use in the thermal pool.
The Gross Barmen Hot Spring Resort has been built close to the former Rhenish mission station. The former mission was converted into the thermal bath in 1975. From a depth of 2500 metres the thermal water gets pumped into an indoor and outdoor pool.
The resort is open throughout the whole year and is managed by the Namibia Wildlife Resort.
