Marrakesh

The magical labyrinth

To call Marrakech picturesque doesn't do it justice - it bristles with too much life, too many surprises, too many hidden beauties, to be captured in a single word. Those who enter the historic Moroccan city delve into a labyrinth of alleyways where motorcyclists wend their way past tourists and handymen, where wool-dyers and carpet-weavers have settled right next to butchers. Nestled in between these shops, one might be surprised to come upon a majestic portal of a mosque. In the evening, when the storytellers, magic healers, and food vendors assemble at the main square Djemaa el Fna, a huge spectacle unfolds, which fulfills all tourist expectations while never seeming staged. Besides its lively bazaars, Marrakech, easily accessible via train from the north of Morocco, offers many comforts - those who are able should spend their nights in one of the privately owned and guest-adapted city houses (riads) in which oriental and western luxuries unite brilliantly.

  • Oh, and DON'T stay in a hotel. Stay in the middle of the old souks where you are sure you will get lost but won't... I promis.. and if you do there are lots of kind people who will help you find you way.

  • What a city, I could live here. The first time I drove into Marrakech I was drenched in the strong scent of oranges. The air was thick with it. Glorious. All the usual places that people recommend are recommended for a reason. Enjoy it all and you will never forget it.
