This vibrant pink city offers major sensory overload; snakecharmers, fairytale-like palaces and countless reminiscents of the caravantrade in its maze-like alleys. There’s also superb shopping in what’s viewed as the best soukh in the world. Step back in time and enjoy a glass of mint tea in one of its many artistic cafes or small boutique hotels.


City walls

Did you know...

…that the name for Morocco was derived from the name the Portuguese gave to Marrakech; Marruecos?

…that over the past years many hip and artistic hotels and restaurants opened their doors in the city?

…that Marrakech was the gateway to the Sahara caravantrade-trail that led to the legendary city Tombouctou? Leather, carpets, gold and slaves were traded here.

…that you can still find snakecharmers, monkeys and dancing berber tribes on the Djema el Fna square, the beating heart of the city? Especially at night time, the place comes alive.
