What to Expect

Summary

 

 

We start our day trip in Marrakech. We'll pick you up from your hotel or from the airport.

You'll start your tour at 8 am in Marrakesh, with a pickup from your hotel. From there you'll travel about 7-8 hours drive to Chefchaouen.

Via Casablanca and Rabat we drive to Chefchaouen; a beautiful drive through a narrow road through the mountains. Chefchaouen is one of the most beautiful places on earth and originated around 1470. In 1490 and later many Jews fled the Spanish Inquisition. Blue is an important symbolic color within Judaism, hence all houses are blue. By the way, you hear more people talking Spanish than Arabic or French.

There is an oasis of peace and the residents are very friendly. Famous is the delicious Harira, a soup made from chickpeas, you should definitely try this soup.

The beating heart of Chefchaouen is the Plaza Uta el-Hammam with its many cafés and restaurants.

Chefchaouen is also known for its wool production. Look at the colorful blankets and rugs.

Fancy a nice walk? Walk to the Spanish Mosque, a legacy of the Spanish occupation around 1920. From here you have a beautiful view of the town. But you can also wander wonderfully in Chefchaouen without really getting lost.

For the evening, pick out a cozy restaurant such as Beldi Bab Ssour and then enjoy a well-deserved rest in, for example, the boutique hotel Casa Miguel.

The next day you have time to wander around but around 11 o'clock we really have to leave to get back to Marrakech on time.

 

You'll head back to Marrakesh around 11 am and we'll bring you back to your hotel in Marrakesh.

We are open to other times and places, just let us know.

Details about Chefchaouen

 

Summary

 

 

 

 

English

 

Chefchaouen or Chaouen (from Berber: Accawen, literally "horns") is a city in northern Morocco and is the capital of the province of Chefchaouen. The place is a tourist attraction and known for its indigo blue painted houses. The town is located at an altitude of 557 meters above sea level. The name refers to the shape of the mountain tops above the city, which resemble the horns of an animal. Chefchaouen is considered a holy city and has eight mosques. Chefchaouen has about 35.000 inhabitants.

In 1470 a stronghold was founded against the Portuguese who, after conquering important port cities on the Atlantic coast, also invaded the interior. A city soon emerged because there was a water source. Many Muslims, Morishes and Jews came to Morocco and settled in Chefchaouen, among others. Many of the white gabled houses still date from this time.

Between 1921 and 1927 the city was attacked and bombed several times by the Spanish army and captured in 1927.

There are several legends about who introduced the blue facades and why. The blue alleys with richly decorated door openings and many fountains do, however, create a special atmosphere. There are around two hundred hotels in the city. Important sights are:

The old kasba: which houses a museum. The building has Andalusian influences and has a courtyard garden.

The Medina: Here you will find the most lavishly decorated houses. Coffee houses and shops surround the central square Place Uta el-Hammam.

Quartier Al-Andalus: This neighborhood is built on a slope and has many stairs.

A goat's own cheese is produced around the city.

Chefchaouen oder Chaouen (von Berber: Accawen, wörtlich "Hörner") ist eine Stadt im Norden Marokkos und die Hauptstadt der Provinz Chefchaouen. Der Ort ist eine Touristenattraktion und bekannt für seine indigoblau gestrichenen Häuser. Die Stadt liegt auf einer Höhe von 557 Metern über dem Meeresspiegel. Der Name bezieht sich auf die Form der Berggipfel über der Stadt, die den Hörnern eines Tieres ähneln. Chefchaouen gilt als heilige Stadt und hat acht Moscheen. Chefchaouen hat rund 35.000 Einwohner.

1470 wurde eine Hochburg gegen die Portugiesen gegründet, die nach der Eroberung wichtiger Hafenstädte an der Atlantikküste auch in das Landesinnere einfielen. Bald entstand eine Stadt, weil es eine Wasserquelle gab. Viele Muslime, Morisken und Juden kamen nach Marokko und ließen sich unter anderem in Chefchaouen nieder. Viele der weißen Giebelhäuser stammen noch aus dieser Zeit.

Zwischen 1921 und 1927 wurde die Stadt mehrmals von der spanischen Armee angegriffen und bombardiert und 1927 eingenommen.

Es gibt mehrere Legenden darüber, wer die blauen Fassaden eingeführt hat und warum. Die blauen Gassen mit reich verzierten Türöffnungen und vielen Brunnen schaffen jedoch eine besondere Atmosphäre. Es gibt ungefähr zweihundert Hotels in der Stadt. Wichtige Sehenswürdigkeiten sind:

Die alte Kasba: die ein Museum beherbergt. Das Gebäude hat andalusische Einflüsse und einen Garten im Innenhof.

Die Medina: Hier finden Sie die am aufwendigsten dekorierten Häuser. Kaffeehäuser und Geschäfte umgeben den zentralen Platz Place Uta el-Hammam.

Quartier Al-Andalus: Dieses Viertel ist an einem Hang gebaut und hat viele Treppen.

Ein Ziegenkäse wird in der ganzen Stadt hergestellt.

 

Nederlands

Chefchaouen of Chaouen (van het Berbers: Accawen, letterlijk "hoorns") is een stad in noord Marokko en is de hoofdplaats van de provincie Chefchaouen. De plaats is een toeristische trekpleister en bekend door haar indigoblauw geschilderde huizen. Het stadje is gelegen op een hoogte van 557 meter boven de zeespiegel. De naam verwijst naar de vorm van de bergtoppen boven de stad, die lijken op de hoorns van een dier. Chefchaouen wordt beschouwd als een heilige stad en telt acht moskeeën. Chefchaouen telt ongeveer 35.000 inwoners.

In 1470 werd een bolwerk tegen de Portugezen gesticht die na het veroveren van belangrijke havensteden aan de Atlantische kust ook het binnenland binnendrongen. Er ontstond al snel een stad omdat er een waterbron te vinden was. Er kwamen veel moslims, Morisken en Joden naar Marokko en vestigden zich o.a. in Chefchaouen. Veel van de witte puntgevelhuizen stammen nog uit deze tijd.

Tussen 1921 en 1927 werd de stad enkele malen door het Spaanse leger aangevallen en gebombardeerd en in 1927 ingenomen.

Er zijn meerdere legendes over wie de blauwe gevels heeft geïntroduceerd en waarom. Wel zorgen de blauwe steegjes met rijk versierde deuropeningen en vele fonteinen voor een aparte sfeer. In de stad zijn ongeveer tweehonderd hotels te vinden. Belangrijke bezienswaardigheden zijn:

De oude kasba: Waarin een museum is ondergebracht. Het gebouw vertoont Andalusische invloeden en heeft een binnentuin.

De medina: Hier zijn de weelderigst versierde huizen te vinden. Rond het centrale plein Place Uta el-Hammam staan koffiehuizen en winkels.

Quartier Al-Andalus: Deze wijk is tegen een helling opgebouwd en heeft veel trappen. 

Rondom de stad wordt een eigen geitenkaas geproduceerd.
