Last month we went a week to the magical Marrakech in Morocco. It is the ideal place for a sunny city trip in autumn. Sunshine, lots of culture and countless fun spots are the ideal backdrop for a magical city trip to the North of Africa. Find out why you should do Marrakech as your next city trip!
Marrakech, and actually all of Morocco, is a totally different world than ours. From traffic to their eating habits to the language they speak. We noticed countless differences with our country. It was therefore the first days a little change and get used to for us, even though we are somewhat ordinary in terms of other cultures. We definitely don’t mean this in the negative sense, because Marrakech is beautiful and a fantastic experience in all areas. If you want something completely different, this is a great destination to discover!
With places like the souks and the famous Djemaa el Fna square,Marrakech captures the imagination. In the souks you can buy the most beautiful lanterns or ‘flying’ carpets and on the El Fna square you can see snake charmers at work. It’s not hard to see magic in the air. Furthermore, we also find Marrakech magical because of its imposing buildings that you only seem to have seen in movies. Everything here radiates magic.
Although Marrakech is a very busy city where you are sometimes overwhelmed by smells, colours and sounds,you can also find many places where you can relax. Far away from all this hustle and bustle. For example, you can relax in a hammam where they massage you with oil, scrub or clay. You can also escape the crowds by drinking a nice mint tea on the balcony terrace of a café or restaurant and watching the crowds from a distance. Or you can visit a riad where you can relax by the pool. So choose enough to unwind in magical Marrakech when you’re looking for it.
If there’s one thing you can say about Morocco and their people, it’s that it’s a very welcoming country. Nowhere in the world have we been invited so often to eat, have tea or just have a look somewhere. Although most residents are very strict in following rules,they are extremely friendly to tourists here.
The last reason you might be able to persuade you to go to Marrakech is that it’s a fantastic place to take pictures. This city is even so photogenic that you just can’t take bad pictures here. The buildings, because of their light colour, stand out nicely against the clear blue sky. And most buildings are also richly decorated with mosaic or other beautiful details. Furthermore, the sun shines on golden hour so unreal beautiful over the city centre and you can find the most beautiful Instagram spots in Marrakech. Here you can really take the perfect pictures. And that’s a great advantage for this city!
