Travelers and Activities
In Egypt, both bathing holidaymakers and culture lovers get their money's worth. Set up camp on the Red Sea and take exciting diving trips to the colourful coral world off the coast. It is not for nothing that the region around the Sinai Peninsula is considered one of the most beautiful diving spots in the world. Culture lovers, on the other hand, dive into Egypt's more than 6,000-year history and visit monuments such as the Cheops Pyramid, the Sphinx of Giza and the temples of Karnak, Luxor and Abu Simbel.
Things to know
Thanks to different climatic influences, Egypt is always worth a visit. While the conditions for a beach holiday in the Mediterranean are best between May and September, a diving holiday in the Red Sea is suitable all year round. Those who attach great importance to peace and quiet can book their vacation rental there for the months of March and April. Adventure vacationers planning a round trip or a longer desert tour book their accommodation for the periods between February and April as well as October and November.
