The mosque Koutoubia is the biggest and one of the oldest mosques in Marrakech. Its architceture was the model for all other mosques in Marrakech and the minaret of the Koutoubia Mosque is the landmark of the city of Marrakech and the entire country.

Nice garden with the famous blue house of the Yves Saint Laurent-Museum. If you like crowded places and want to get part of the instagram hype take a look :) Apart from children trying to get the best picture (especially of themselves) you will find a berber museum that shows some historical artifacts of this long culuture. In the garden itself you can find plants of all five continents and a memorial to Yves, who finally had his ashes scattered in this area.

Never thought that this city is so beautiful. It's like the fairy tale thousand and one night.

In this little fishing village you can easily spend 1 or 2 weeks, you won't regret it. The atmosphere is very laid back, there are a few hotels, mostly surfer hostels. The beach is beautiful, very big and also clean. Compared to the impersonal Agadir, I found this village as a treasure chest.

This is the pulse of the city. Food, drinks, storytellers, snake charmers, musicians, vendors - this place has it all. If you like it a little calmer just enter one of the cafe's terraces and enjoy the view on the square while drinking a cup of fresh mint tea.

Gorgeous palace from the late 19th Century. Has a very calm and charming atmosphere, which is a nice contrast to the loud and vivid streets of Marrakesh.

There a mostly locals at this market., which is very buzzing, loud and vivid. Be prepared to get rid of some annoying offers. There is also a big donkey market. In my opinion not really a must see.

Beautiful palm forests along the river. If you don't have enough time and you have to choose between Dades and Todra valley, I would rather visit Dades valley!

Lingering through the gardens of the locals was my personal highlight during my stay in Morocco!

Although the valley is pretty long and spreads over a wide area, you will find yourself amazed again and again traveling through this valley. If you don't have a 4x4 your journey will end at a certain point. But there is plenty of nature and little villages with ksars and mosques to explore in the first part of the valley. If you have time, I would recommend to stay at least two nights and book a guided tour into the mountains!

This former Madrassa (Islamic college) is one of the most beautiful buildings in Marrakesh. It is an outstanding example of Islamic/Moroccan architecture and interior design between 1500 and 1600. This is a must see in Marrakesh.
