Must do in Marrakesh ! Friendly, knowledgeable, and super informative was our guide mohamed led a fantastic and insightful stroll around the souq of Marrakesh that brought the city, its history, culture, and traditions to life. Genuine and kind, he knows a lot of people around the souk and is fluent in English too, so you get an excellent grasp on details and observations about life and sense of community in Marrakesh. If you want a professional but personable guide to show you local hidden gem places (you'll make a couple of stops along the way but there is no pressure to buy) or revisit afterwards to snag some treasures by yourself, mohamed is the only guide you'll need in Marrakesh. definitley recommand !

Great Tour, Great Guide THANK YOU !! Mohamed was a fantastic guide - he showed us many interesting sites including the traditional bakery and hammam and le Jardin Secret. We sampled delicious local food. We also visited a number of artisan workshops to see how the craftsmen create their wares. We even learnt how to knot a Berber carpet! The whole experience was wonderful. All of the stores we visited had very friendly staff who were not pushy in the slightest. Definitley recommand.

The cultural heart of Marrakech We’ve just finished our afternoon tour of the Souqs with Mohammed , we met in front of the Cafe de France and started the tour from there with another couple from Belgium. We were shown not only the shops and stores in the souqs but also the trades represented there - great to see carpets and metal lamps being made in the back streets. It wasn’t a shopping trip as such (but I’m sure you can shop if you ask) but more of an education of the area, it’s history and it’s people. At 3 hours it’s a long walk although you are sheltered from the direct sun much if the time. our guide have a great commentary without bombarding us with too much unnecessary detail. We stopped for coffe at the half time point which was nice. Definitley recommand

una hermosa tarde en Marrakech Aunque el turismo tradicional está cambiando la ciudad, ésta aún conserva esa esencia del mundo árabe y su forma de vida tan cercana a la nuestra en una época no muy lejana. muy buena guía con mucho conocimiento sobre la ciudad de Marrakech, me encantó el café bacha les comparto una foto que tomé del café

A great way to see the highlights of Marrakech! We opted for a private tour and were pleased that we did. Our tour guide 'mohamed' was great, Very friendly and warm, knowledgeable and enthusiastic. He encouraged us to ask any questions and had a good sense of humour and kept the tour light-hearted and fun. We were provided with lots of information and saw the highlights of Marrakech and learned a lot about the history and culture in just three hours. Definitely recommend!

The 17 best things to do in Marrakech

From museums and souks to fabulous restaurants, here are the things in Marrakech you should not mis

 

Craving somewhere with food like you’ve never tasted, markets to get lost in and jaw-dropping sunsets on the beach? Welcome to Marrakech, Africa’s Capital of Culture, which will encapsulate you with colourful sights, sounds and smells as soon as you enter. Here, everyone and everything is on the move – you’ve just got to go along for the ride.

If you’re a foodie, you’ll find some fantastic Moroccan restaurants to sample in the city (many of them are rooftops, which is a win). But you might simply be heading to Marrakech to explore its museums, admire its architecture, and spend your days wandering through its many, many fantastic souks. Whatever your desires, we’ve got you covered. Read on for the very best things to do, see and eat in Marrakech this year. 

Unmissable things to do in Marrakech

Bahia Palace

1. Bahia Palace

What is it? Bahia Palace (which roughly translates to ‘beautiful palace’) was built in the late 19th century, and now forms the epicentre of the city’s culture. 

Why go? You won’t believe the decor until you see it, with high, gilded ceilings, rooms filled with paintings, mosaics and stuccos, and a huge, open garden to wander. Find a spot in the shade and sit for hours to take it all in. 

 

MICHEL TEULER

2. Souk Semmarine

What is it? One of Marakkech’s many souks (meaning markets), Souk Semmarine is a must see. The market sells everything under the sun, from leather goods to silverware and crockery. 

Why go? Did you even go to Morocco if you didn’t come back with something to remember it by? Haggle with the traders for that beautiful rug you spotted – you won’t regret it. 

3. Maison de la Photographie

What is it? A three-storey riad-turned-gallery housing the vintage Moroccan photography collection of Patrick Menac’h and Marrakshi Hamid Mergani. The images document the lifestyle and landscapes of Morocco between 1870 and 1950 – more than a century later, many things remain exactly the same.

Why go? To immerse yourself in the visual history of Morocco. The rooftop café is also one of the highest in the medina and is a great spot for a 

 

Jardin Majorelle

4. Jardin Majorelle

What is it? Created by the French painter Jacques Majorelle, this botanical garden is home to more types of cacti than you can shake a terrarium at and has a stunning indigo blue art deco house as its centrepiece.

Why go? Phone cameras at the ready – Jardin Majorelle is pure Instagram gold. Though you’ll see some cringe photoshoots going on, it’s impossible to take a bad picture here. Arrive early to avoid unwanted photo-bombers.

 

Musée Yves Saint Laurent

5. Musée Yves Saint Laurent

What is it? The French designer loved spending time in Marrakech so much he actually bought Jardin Majorelle in 1980. Opened next door to the gardens in 2017, the Musée Yves Saint Laurent is dedicated to Yves’s couture legacy and has a permanent display of hundreds of garments spanning his 40-year career.

Why go? The YSL collection is an amazing body of work that even non-fashionistas can appreciate. It’s housed in one of the city’s most striking buildings, alongside a beautiful garden café, bookshop, temporary exhibition hall and audit

 
 

El Badi Palace

6. El Badi Palace

What is it? The epic ruins of Sultan Ahmed al-Mansour’s once-magnificent palace, set within sunken gardens and surrounded by epic ramparts whose decrepit towers boast panoramic views over the medina.

Why go? El Badi may be a ruin, but it offers a fascinating insight into the power and wealth of past Moroccan dynasties. Within the ruins, you’ll also find the jewel that is the Koutoubia’s minbar (prayer pulpit), crafted by 12th-century Cordoban arti

 

7. Musée des Confluences

What is it? The former governor’s palace and home to the notorious Thami El Glaoui, Lord of the Atlas. Now the Musée des Confluences, it houses the archaeological collection of American Patty Birch and puts on shows exploring the intersection of eastern and western cultures.

Why go? This is probably the most beautiful construction in the medina, vast in ambition and covered in intricate detail: coffered cedar ceilings, geometric tiling, stucco worked into elaborate floral motifs. Don’t miss Marrakech’s best coffee shop, Bacha Coffee House, which serves more than 40 brews in the same building.

8. Riad Yima Tea Room

What is it? The home and personal gallery of Hassan Hajjaj, the so-called ‘Andy Warhol of Marrakech’. The whole place is filled with his upcycled pop art, from furniture and art objects to his sought-after photographs. It’s also a tearoom, so make yourself at home.

Why go? This bright, eccentric building is where the kitsch of the medina meets modern Morocco. Go for a classic cup of mint tea.

9. Ateliers d’Ailleurs

What is it? Hands-on workshops with Marrakchi maalems (master craftsmen) in their studios. Learn how to make your own pair of babouche slippers or follow a course in tadelakt (plaster), basketry, pottery or cooking.

Why go? It’s an opportunity to meet serious artisans on their own terms and hear how they became masters of their craft. It also gives you a new appreciation of the work that goes into the goods you’re haggling over in the souk.

 
Musée de Mouassine

10. Musée de Mouassine

What is it? A jewel of 16th-century Saadian architecture, this douiria (guest apartment) was built by a chorfa (noble) family and retains all its exquisite original decoration that acts as a backdrop to thoughtful exhibitions and musical events.

Why go? Every Monday and Friday from October to May, the museum hosts concerts of classical Moroccan music. Set in such beautiful surroundings, the events are super-atmospheric and accompanied by tea and pastries.

11. The Mellah

What is it? The Jewish quarter of Marrakech, which has undergone an extensive renovation programme. Make sure to visit the Al Azama synagogue and the extraordinary Miara cemetery.

Why go? Tours give an insight into a fascinating part of Marrakech’s (and Morocco’s) history. This area of the city is rarely explored by tourists other than Jewish heritage groups – get down before everyone else cottons on.

 

12. Souk Cuisine

What is it? Souk Cuisine puts on cookery classes with a twist. Starting with a tour of the souks, you shop for ingredients before heading to a riad where you’re taught how to cook by a group of local women.

Why go? Food is a huge part of Moroccan culture, and the course is a fab way to learn more about the country and its traditions. You’ll also make some of the tastiest tagines in town.

 
 

Hammam de la Rose

13. Hammam De La Rose

What is it? The hammam – a public bathhouse – is a Moroccan institution and you’ll find one in every neighbourhood in Marrakech. It’s where Moroccans go for their weekly, relaxing gommage (scrub), but also to reconnect with themselves and with friends and family.

Why go? Because it’s a restorative experience and this hammam offers traditional treatments – scrubs, masques and massages – in luxurious surroundings.

 
Michel Teuler

14. Souk Place des Épices

What is it? Moroccan cuisine is famous for its rich, aromatic flavours. Place des Épices is the traditional spice souk where you’ll find merchants selling everything from allspice to ras al hanout (a mix of more than a dozen spices).

Why go? This open-air souk is truly atmospheric. As well as bags of spices, you can pick up colourful basketry or simply watch the show from one of the cafés that ring the square.

15. Café Clock

What is it? A hybrid restaurant-café-cultural centre where you can consider the merits of date milkshakes and camel burgers and sign up for storytelling workshops, calligraphy classes, oud lessons and Gnaoua jam sessions.

Why go? To dive deep into Moroccan culture and give some things a go yourself. Also, 10 dirhams from every camel burger goes to charity.

 

Michel Teuler

16. Jemaa el-Fna

What is it? The vast open square at the heart of the medina is one of Marrakech’s biggest attractions and is a Unesco world heritage site. Expect snake charmers, street entertainers and over-enthusiastic henna artists at every turn.

Why go? Locals and tourists descend on the Jemaa every night, drawn by the ceaseless hoopla and halqa (street theatre). Grab some food from one of the barbecue stalls, listen to some music, head up to a rooftop bar and marvel at the sunset.

17. Gueliz

What is it? A short journey to the west of the medina, you’ll find the neighbourhood of Gueliz, the so-called 1930s ‘New Town’. There are European-style shopping malls and small homeware boutiques aplenty, plus an excellent array of bars and restaurants for a post-retail therapy pit stop.

Why go? Gueliz is the modern face of Marrakech and it’s here you’ll find the city’s best restaurants. Its laid-back vibe makes for a refreshing change from the intensity of the medina.
