Bazaar and Garden Bliss

Morocco’s Ochre City tells tales of 1001 nights. Be it in the souks or in the many gardens: Marrakesh’s authentic oriental flair is omnipresent.

Whether taking advantage of the mild winter climate or hitting the sun during the summer months: travellers to Marrakesh can expect to experience a culture shock. The city is colourful, loud, hectic – and beautiful. The Medina offers a wide array of local products. Since the risk of getting lost in the maze of alleyways is real, it is advisable to book a guide. After sunset, residents and visitors flock to the famous Jemaa el-Fnaa market square to enjoy snake charmers, jugglers and oriental specialities.

Experience culture

Intricately adorned with stucco and mosaic, the Ben Youssef Madrasa is one of Marrakesh’s most beautiful landmarks. The Qur’anic school founded in the fourteenth century is today a museum. The Koutoubia Mosque, Marrakesh’s landmark, is less than a mile away and most definitely worth a visit. Standing 253 feet (77 m) tall, the Mosque’s minaret is visible from almost everywhere in the city.

Oasis in the city

Marrakesh’s many gardens offer a perfect refuge from the hustle and bustle of the city. A visit to the Jardin Majorelle will soon reveal why the legendary fashion designer Yves Saint Laurent fell in love with this place. The extraordinary diversity of exotic plants, set against pots and walls painted in vivid Majorelle blue, creates a very special atmosphere. The “Paradis du Safran“ is equally fascinating: besides precious saffron spice, mangoes and avocadoes are cultivated in this delightful spot. Visitors interested in traditional Moroccan bread making can attend one of the many cookery courses on offer in Marrakesh. What a great way to take a piece of Morocco back home with you!
