9 reasons to travel to Morocco

Morocco is a travel destination that enchants its guests with the flair of the stories of “A Thousand and One Nights”. The grandiose nature with its diverse landscapes, the fairytale souks, the pleasant climate, and the hospitality of the locals attract more and more visitors.



 1. An unimaginably beautiful natural backdrop

If you choose Morocco as your travel destination, you should make a round trip so that you can experience the various natural phenomena in their entirety that this North African country offers. Morocco has almost 3,000 kilometers of coastline on the Atlantic and Mediterranean. There are fine sandy beaches for exuberant bathing pleasure on the Atlantic. The Mediterranean coast is shaped in large sections by the Rif Mountains. The cliffs there are up to 1,000 meters high. However, there are also wide bays with golden sand.





The Rif Mountains are the northernmost part of the Atlas Mountains. This is followed by the Middle Atlas and the High Atlas. In the High Atlas, there are snow-capped peaks up to 4,000 meters high. The Jbel Toubkal is the highest mountain in Morocco. The mountains are crossed by mighty rivers. There is sufficient rainfall on the north side of the mountains so that Mediterranean forests can be found here. The south side, on the other hand, is a steppe. In southern Morocco, there are stone deserts on the plains that are up to 1,000 meters high. In the far south, directly on the Mauritanian border, there are also smaller areas of sandy deserts.



2. Dream beaches as far as the eye can see

Morocco offers a large number of seaside resorts with wonderful beaches. The water temperature on the Atlantic coast is between 17 and 20 degrees Celsius all year round. Agadir, Asihla, or Plage Blanche offer some of the most famous sandy beaches on the Atlantic. Those who vacation there can also do and experience a lot in the area. The preferred beaches on the Mediterranean are Plage al Jamil, Saidia, and Tamuda Bay. In summer, the water temperature here rises to 25 degrees Celsius.

 


3. About Moroccans

For the most part, the local population in Morocco is very open to strangers and is very hospitable. As in many Arab countries, sweet and hot mint tea (Thé de Menthe) is drunk in Morocco and offered to guests generously. Everywhere in the country the visitor meets locals who are very interested in the "where from" and "where to" of the foreign. Especially far away from the tourist centers, it can happen that travelers are kindly invited to dinner at the family table. Warm hospitality is inextricably linked with good food.





 4. Spectacular weather

In Morocco, the weather is characterized by clear differences in the climatic zones. It is subtropical on the coasts. The Atlas Mountains act as a climatic divide. In southern Morocco, the increasing continental influence is noticeable as a desert climate. A drought begins in summer, especially in the south. The area with the most rainfall in the country is between Tangier and Meknes. In Morocco, there are around 3,000 hours of sunshine per year - so the sun is (almost) always shining. In the mountains, there is a closed snow cover from 1,000 meters in height in the cold season, so Morocco also offers good opportunities for winter sports.



 5. Culinary variety

Morocco is a land of spices, which are used in abundance in national dishes such as “tagine” or “couscous”. In the typical restaurants of the country, no dishes are offered that contain pork. There are delicious dishes with chicken, lamb, beef as well as fish and seafood in many variations. As a starter, there are olives, salads, and flatbreads as well as delicious hummus, a porridge made from chickpeas that are well seasoned and refined with olive oil. A pastilla is served on festive occasions. This is an elaborately prepared type of pie. Kebab, kefta, and merguez sausages are other specialties of the country.



 6. Immerse yourself in the Orient in the Moroccan souks

Morocco, with its winding alleys in the souks, offers the visitor a hustle and bustle and the smell of the Orient. Big cities like Fez, Agadir, and Marrakech also have the largest medinas. This is how the old towns in Morocco are called, in which the souks are located. A visit is always worthwhile. In addition to handicrafts, jewelry, spices, and food, you will also find all the utensils for the household.



 7. A variety of cultural sites

The Kingdom of Morocco can look back on an eventful history. The country is rich in legacies of cultural heritage. For tourists, visits to the royal cities and the old Roman city of Volubilis are worthwhile.





 8. No visa requirement

for trips under 90 days. You just need a valid passport to enter Morocco as a tourist, which must be valid for at least six months. For a stay that lasts longer than 90 days, a visa and, if necessary, a work permit must be applied for.


9. Did you know why goats climb trees in Morocco?

Nowhere in the world can you see so many goats climbing trees as in Morocco. The secret: They love to eat the leaves and young branches of the argania. The precious argan oil, which is processed in high-quality cosmetic products, is obtained from the fruits of the argania.
