* Day 1:

● Egyptian museum
You will be taken to the Egyptian Museum, situated in the Tahrer Square in Cairo. The Museum of Egyptian Antiquities, known ordinarily as the Egyptian Museum, is home to the most extensive collection of ancient Egyptian antiquities in the world. This is the best gateway to ancient Egyptian history in Cairo, with 27 royal mummies from pharaonic period.

● Alabaster Mosque (Mohammad Ali Mosque)
You will easily locate the Mohamed Ali Mosque, owing to its eminent features: its dome rises up to 52 meters high and two east side minarets. The mosque is situated on the apex of the citadel, and along with the citadel, is one of the distinctive features and tourist attractions of Cairo.

● Salah El-Din Citadel
When in Cairo, it is essentially impossible to miss the Salah El-Din Citadel, one of the world’s greatest structures to medieval war. The Citadel is a fortification, a defensive wall, and was once popular for its awe-inspiring views of the city. Resembling an exemplary medieval fortress, with huge and stunning gateways, towers and high defending walls, the Citadel is one of Cairo's main attractions and likely the most prominent non-pharaonic monument.

● The Coptic Museum
See the unique mixture of cultures at the Coptic Museum in Cairo where are displayed hundreds of Christian Egyptian documents, manuscripts, statues and artefacts in which you'll distinct Ancient Egyptian, Greek, Roman and Ottoman influence.

● Nile Cruise
The Nile cruise is an exceptional way to spend a Cairo evening and enjoy a pleasant time on the Nile. Onboard you will be entertained by a belly dancer. While you enjoy the entertainment, you will be served a lovely buffet dinner.

* Day 2:

● The Pyramids of Giza
The pyramids, which have always loomed as emblems of ancient Egypt in the Western imagination and vision, were disseminated in Hellenistic times, when the Great Pyramid was listed by Antipater of Sidon as one of the Seven Wonders of the World. The pyramid is an architectural landmark, and the technique used for its construction has been a subject of discussion among archaeologists throughout the world.

● The Great Sphinx
The greatest conundrum of Ancient Egyptian mysteries is furthermore the largest monolithic statue and the oldest known monumental sculpture in the world. When was it built, for what purpose, which pharaoh does it represent, and who broke the nose? Any answer is a matter of speculation. Egyptologists have not found any decisive evidence. No matter. The Great Sphinx is a wonder to behold.

Ein Muss für jeden Ägypten Urlauber

Wir buchten über Premier tous hurghada einen Zweitagesausflug nach Kairo.Teure Angelegenheit, hat sich aber super gelohnt da wir viel mit den Bus unternommen haben. Wer wollte konnte für ca. 8 Euro mit dem Boot über den Nil zum Restaurant fahren, wer nicht wurde mit dem Bus gefahren.

Reise nach Kairo

Wer öfter nach Ägypten reist - muss sich unbedingt einmal im Leben Kairo anschauen. Dort erwartete uns Mohammed, ein deutschsprachiger Ägypter, der uns 2 Tag begleitete und uns alles erkärte. Übernachtet haben wir in einem Hotel in Kairo. Dies war sehr schön.

Faszination Kairo

Wir waren zwei Tage unterwegs. Ich hatte eine Limo mit Fahrer und einen deutschprachigen Reiseleiter gebucht. Direkt vor den Pyramiden (Eingang) stiegen wir aus und gingen geradewegs auf die Pyramiden zu. Es war einfach nur gigantisch, man ist wie gebannt von diesen Bauwerken.
