Do you want to visit impressive attractions? You’re looking for the most famous shopping miles or enchanting boutiques for the perfect shopping trip? Or you’re interested in fascinating buildings of art and culture? We’ve compiled a selection for you.

  • Jardin Majorelle

    Tropical oasis of beauty
    This used to be the home of the French artist, Jacques Majorelle. His grand villa is surrounded by the Jardin Majorelle, which has been named after him. This magnificent garden with its subtropical plants is a real feast for the eyes. For a long time, the garden remained untended and took on a relatively wild look. However, Yves Saint Laurent and his partner took over the villa and upkeep of the garden, allowing the estate to reach its present-day fame.

  • Bahia Palace

    An architectural masterpiece
    Translated into English, its name means "the radiant" or "the dazzling", and the building is, quite literally, resplendent. The 8000 m2 Bahia Palace boasts a total of 160 rooms, numerous patios and a large number of riads. The architectural style is a mixture of Andalusian and Moorish influences. Visiting the large palace site is not something that can be done quickly. It is worth going on a guided tour, which will give you an interesting insight into palace life of long ago.

  • Koutoubia Mosque

    The landmark of Marrakech
    This house of prayer was built in the middle of the 12th century. The mosque's magnificent minaret has become the city's landmark and is the most photographed minaret in Morocco. However, the minaret can only be admired from the outside. Inside, the Koutoubia is divided into 17 naves, and is home to the some of the finest stucco work and Arabian calligraphy.

  • Jemaa el-Fnaa

    Meeting place in the centre
    The central square in Marrakech and probably the city's most important sight: Jemaa el-Fnaa, or jugglers' square. In earlier days, this square used to be the place where people were sentenced to death. Today, however, it is a stage shared by merchants, artists, fire-breathers and snake-charmers alike. This is where the locals meet, and where a large number of merchants offer their Moroccan wares. There is no better place to get a real taste of the city than in the Jemaa el-Fnaa square.

  • The city walls of Marrakech

    Monumental construction
    In 1132, Sultan Ali Ben Youssef commissioned the extension of Marrakech's famous city walls. They were later extended, until they stretched a total of 19 kilometres, containing 9 city gates and 202 square towers. The walls are still well maintained today. The Aguenaou gate is probably the most splendid of all the city gates. The wall is constructed of rammed earth, which changes colour from pink to red depending on the position of the sun. Needless to say, it is a favourite motif among photographers.

  • Souks

    Oriental bazaar
    It simply needs to be seen, smelt and experienced: the feeling of meandering through the souks of Marrakech, soaking up a multitude of experiences, buying souvenirs and, of course, bartering. The narrow, winding streets leading off Jemaa el-Fnaa square are filled with the large Arabian bazaar, mainly selling typical oriental lanterns, leather goods, earthenware products, jewellery and spices. Time is of essence here and so is patience too.

  • Bazar du Sud – Lamdaghri

    Rugs en masse
    There are many rug-sellers who try to tempt people to buy their wares. The Lamdaghri brothers are popular with the crowd because they are the least pushy merchants and let their rugs do the talking. Founded in 1940, this is one of the oldest rug dealers in Morocco. The two brothers work together with local artisans and specialise in rugs with traditional designs, which are sold throughout the world. The choice of rugs is enormous, so bring enough time and patience with you.

  • Assaisse Ouzeka

    It's all about argon oil
    Argan oil is known as "Moroccan gold". This oil is renowned throughout the world for its skincare properties, yet outside Morocco, it comes with a hefty price tag. Although the oil is available everywhere in Marrakech's medina, it is important to know the good merchants from the bad. Those visiting the souks should keep their eyes peeled for Assaisse Ouzeka, who sells genuine argan oil and associated products.

  • Marrakech Museum

    Moroccan and international
    The industrialist, Omar Benjelloun, established this extraordinary museum as part of his wish to give something back to his home city of Marrakech. Art lovers will not be disappointed here. Art from contrasting epochs is displayed in this museum in light-flooded rooms. Alongside paintings by international artists, the museum also has a great exhibition on Moroccan art.

  • Dar Si Said Museum

    A supreme example of a well
    This great museum is housed within a former city palace. This is the perfect place for discovering the city's historical art treasures. Berber arts and crafts spanning several centuries are on display here. The museum's pièce de résistance is the former well from the Koran school, Medersa Ben Youssef. The well is considered a masterpiece of sacral Islamic art.
