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.
