Aswan offers rich and unique cultural experiences which you find nowhere else.

● The Temple of Philae
Dedicated to the goddess Isis, the Temple of Philae is located in a spectacular setting, landscaped to match the original site of the temple when it was relocated by UNESCO after the building of the Aswan High Dam threatened the site. Catch sight of the Temple of Isis which is built in the same way as the temples of the New Kingdom with massive pylons.

● The Aswan High Dam
Prepare yourself for an overwhelming sightseeing experience: the Aswan High Dam is truly impressive and marvelous. Aswan High Dam is an engineering miracle built in the 1960s. From the top of the two mile long High Dam you can get a glimpse of Lake Nasser.

Vom Badeurlaub Hurghada 2 Tage nach Assuan

Wir können den Besuch nur empfehlen. Alles sehr gut erhalten und sehr beeindruckend. Schon die Anfahrt von Assuan ist Wunderschön, und dann kommt mann an und sieht was die Architekten gemacht haben es ist einfach super Kompliment .

Einfach gigantisch!

Es ging ab Assuan sehr früh los mit Fahrt in einem Convoy mit mehren PKWs und Kleinbussen für einige Stunden durch die Wüste. Für jemanden der zwei Tage in Abu Simbel sich aufhält, empfiehlt sich auch die Licht und Tonshow . Sie ist zwar nicht so gewaltig wie in Karnak, lohnt sich aber auf jeden Fall.

Abu Simbel - ein unvergesslicher Traum

Diese Sehenswürdigkeit muss man gesehen haben, alles mit der einer Nilfahrt verbunden einfach Traum haft. Eine sehr beindruckende und sehenswerte Tempelanlage Ramses II,. Auch wenn der Preis hoch ist sollte man alles daran setzen dorthin zu kommen.
