Let’s explore Marrakech! Snake charmers, carpet shops, souks and riads – Marrakech is the epitome of Morocco and for most travelers the first and most important destination of their trip – rightly so!
Marrakech is the polished, trimmed-up version of Morocco. Nowhere else do tradition and modernity meet in such a spectacular, tasteful way, nowhere else is the offer more diverse, the hype bigger. And nowhere else are larger tourist crowds …
„In Marrakech all the senses are overwhelmed.“ (Lonely Planet)
Marrakech is like a fantastic intoxication of colors and smells. Here you can stroll for days through the lively markets, buy tons of beautiful crafts, be inspired by jesters and fortune tellers, sleep in stylish riads, dine in casual cafes and enjoy the fantastic views of the mighty, snow-capped Atlas Mountains on the horizon.
Marrakech is THE tourist highlight of Morocco. Especially in the last few years, the bustling city has become one of the hippest and most exciting destinations in the world, thanks to Instagram. Modern restaurants and cafes opened, riads were lovingly restored, the souks‘ offer was tailored more and more to the taste of the travelers.
Now everything is adapted to the masses of visitors. The standard is very high and „western“ – that makes travel and stay easy, convenient and uncomplicated. That’s great, but who wants to find the real, unadorned Morocco in Marrakech, has to search a bit and leave his comfort zone.
