Visit The Capital of Algeria

Algiers embodies a captivating blend of the past and the modern era. With its roots tracing back over 1,000 years to the earliest settlers, the city has evolved into a thriving metropolis, accommodating over 3.5 million residents.


Adding to its allure, Algiers boasts the second metro system on the entire African continent, following Cairo, Egypt. This efficient and comfortable transportation network offers a seamless way to explore the capital while uncovering the top attractions and activities that Algiers has to offer. Here are:

Explore the Casbah:

Once a labyrinthine network of narrow streets perched on the hills by the Mediterranean sea, the Casbah of Algiers dates back to the 16th to 18th century, enclosed within protective walls. This historic gem is now the heart of Algiers and a unique destination in Algeria. Local artists and handicraft shops abound here, making it a must-visit place, not just in Algiers but in the entire country.

Discover the Martyrs Memorial:

One of the most prominent attractions in Algeria, the Martyrs Memorial stands proudly on the hills overlooking Algiers. If you have limited time and can visit only one site in the city, this should be your top choice. Erected in remembrance of the Algerians who lost their lives during the war of independence against the French (1954-1962), this monument holds great historical significance. Situated near the Botanical Garden Hamma and the National Art Museum, the Martyrs Memorial offers a poignant and solemn experience.

Experience the National Museum of Fine Arts:

A perfect stopover between the Botanical Garden and the Martyrs Memorial, the National Museum of Fine Arts may appeal to art enthusiasts with its extensive collection of statues, sculptures, and paintings. However, even if you’re not an art enthusiast, the rooftop balcony offers a captivating view that makes the visit worthwhile. The museum’s history, including the contentious issue of art restitution after Algeria gained independence, adds depth to the experience.

Unwind in the Botanical Garden:

Established in 1832, the Botanical Garden is a vast green oasis covering 58 hectares. Home to an impressive array of 1,200 plant species, this serene location offers a perfect escape from the hustle and bustle of the city. Whether you’re strolling amidst the flora or enjoying refreshments at the small cafeteria, the Botanical Garden promises a relaxing experience.

Visit Notre Dame d’Afrique:

Dating back to 1872, Notre Dame d’Afrique is a renowned Roman Catholic Church and an iconic landmark of Algiers. Positioned on a cliff with a breathtaking view of the Bay of Algiers and the Bab El Oued neighborhood, the church bears a powerful inscription, „Notre Dame d’Afrique priez pour nous et pour les Musulmans“ (Our Lady of Africa, pray for the Muslims and for us), symbolizing unity and harmony between different faiths.

Besides the activities named above there are many more reasons for visiting Algiers, come and see for yourself!
