City trips to Istanbul

City trips to Istanbul

A city trip to Istanbul is an immersion in a different culture. Negotiate prices over a Çay tea at the bazaar, watch the hustle and bustle of the city over a shisha or end the day relaxing in the hamam. Istanbul has something to offer for everyone.


In the metropolis on the Bosphorus, on the border of Asia and Europe, there is also a lot to discover and experience away from the famous sights. A river cruise on the Bosphorus is highly recommended and offers a great opportunity to see the city from a different perspective.

Almost the entire Sultanahmet district is now a UNESCO World Heritage Site. And rightly so: the world-famous sights of Hagia Sophia, the Sultan Ahmed Mosque ("Blue Mosque") and the Topkapi Palace are only a few minutes away. A visit to these sights is a must during your city break to Istanbul.

Another highlight during your city break is a visit to the Grand Bazaar of Istanbul. The huge covered market has been home to several thousand stores for centuries. From spices to carpets to jewelry - here you can buy everything you can dream of. And much more.

The city also has a lot to offer in terms of culinary delights. Whether you prefer modern gourmet temples or traditional, family-run restaurants. There are plenty of choices for every taste. There are also a variety of rooftop bars throughout the city.
