The dyers' and tanners' quarter exudes a very special charm that you should not miss under any circumstances. Fès was one of the four royal cities where the great rulers of the country resided at different times. Besides Fès, Rabat and Meknès, above all Marrakech, as "Pearl of the South" or "Red City", is an attraction worth seeing. The dreamlike city has a lot to offer with the famous Koutoubia Mosque, the Djemaa el Fna, the central market place, as well as with the lively souqs, where merchants chat and haggle.2. Hike to the highest peaks
A highlight for hikers and mountaineers is the Jebel Toubkal, Morocco's highest mountain, which rises 4,168 metres. At the top you will be presented with a beautiful panorama of the summit. The best place to start the ascent is Imlil, which has a good infrastructure for tourists as well as a mountaineering centre. Here you get the right equipment for climbing, hiking and for the next trekking tour.3. Sand as far as the eye can see
A special feature of the region is Erg Chegaga, a 40-kilometre-long chain of dunes whose sand produces different optical colourings through different sunlight incidences. Sometimes the dune appears almost black, sometimes the sand looks orange. Although the surroundings seem quite barren, it is worth visiting the Erg Chegaga dunes, which you should definitely see with your own eyes.
