Discover the beauty of ancient Egypt

Always wanted to come face to face with a sphinx? Book a flight to Cairo and immerse yourself in the world of the ancient Egyptians. Wander through the Egyptian National Museum or visit the historical citadel. And be sure to enjoy a magnificent sunset along the banks of the Nile river. Cairo is amazing in every way!

Ancient Egypt

The Giza Pyramids with the mysterious sphinx are without doubt Cairo’s main attraction. Best known, of course, is the Pyramid of Cheops, one of the 7 Wonders of the Ancient World. If you’d like to stay at an exceptional hotel, follow in the footsteps of many celebrities and book a night at the Mena House Oberoi. Situated almost at the foot of the pyramids, this hotel offers an unparalleled view of these iconic edifices. Not only is Cairo the ideal destination for city trips, it’s also the ideal starting point for a longer vacation in Egypt. Treat yourself: book a flight to Cairo now!

The city’s lifeline

The ultimate place to go shopping in Cairo is the Khan El-Khalili bazaar, where you’ll find oil lamps, fragrant spices, colourful clothing as well as gold jewellery. Don’t be afraid to haggle, it’s common practice here. A Nile cruise comes highly recommended if you’re looking to escape Cairo’s ever-present heat. Running straight through the city, the river is considered Cairo’s lifeline. A short trip, an unforgettable dinner in the evening or even a cruise for several days, the choice is yours!
