    Annaba/Algeria, from 9.00 to 14.00 hrs

    Algeria – diverse new land in sight
    Enjoy the fascinating worlds “between” Africa and Europe. The BREMEN’s first port of call is Algeria’s Annaba, the birthplace of Albert Camus. The city impressively embodies a connection of Christian and Muslim culture. The ruins of the ancient Hippo Regius* shed light onto the country’s history with impressive temples and theatres and an Early Christian basilica. Annaba and the Basilica of St Augustine* are landmarks of Christian ideology and will lead you in the footsteps of the holy Augustine of Hippo. Deepen your insights into the city on Gina Egenolf’s expert excursion: approaching the East*, which will highlight the architectural influences of Christianity, Islam and the new era in the streets and small souks.

    Sunday, 19.08.2018

    Algiers, from 9.30 to 23.00 hrs

    Upon reaching the prime destination of Algiers, the BREMEN will let you look into a kaleidoscope of cultures. White facades, narrow streets and charming parks unite oriental flair and European influence. The highlights of Algiers* are truly outstanding – such as Notre Dame d’Afrique on a 120-metre-high cliff or the almost 100-metre-high Martyrs Memorial. On the expert excursion: tour through the Kasbah*, you can gain insights into the everyday life of the residents of the UNESCO World Cultural Heritage Site. Feel like you are in one of Scheherazade’s tales on the expert excursion: Le Palais des Rais and Islamic art*. The majesty of the Ottoman Empire speaks volumes when you see the historic 18th-century building. Alternatively, grand history comes to life in the former Punic trading post of Tipaza*.

    Malaga/Spain, from 7.00 to 18.00 hrs

    The treasures of Andalusia and the magic of Africa
    The autumn sun bathes the cultural treasures of Malaga in light on the Costa del Sol. The expert excursion: the hunt for traces in Andalusia* recounts the history of the Arab colonisation, which is still evident in the terraced development in the mountains of the Alpujarra. In the city region, the Mediterranean city of Malaga* will enchant you with the castle on Gibralfaro and the Alcazaba fortification – as splendid as Granada and the Moorish residence of Alhambra*. The old royal city is a highlight of Moorish-Arab architecture in Europe and offers exciting insights into the legacy of that era.

    Sunday, 19.08.2018

    Cadiz, from 8.00 to 19.00 hrs

    The Spanish city of Cadiz is a hub between the continents: the old town feels almost African with its narrow streets, small spaces and white, flat-roofed houses. Discover the charming city of Cadiz* with all its colours, cultures and churches. The beauty of nature unfolds with imposingly steep coasts and pine forests on a stroll through the La Brena natural park, whilst Gina Egenolf brings to life the former artistic centre of Europe on the expert excursion: Seville* which includes a tour of the Alcazar palace.

    Sunday, 19.08.2018

    Casablanca/Morocco, from 9.00 to 16.30 hrs

    In Casablanca, poignant history and modern everyday culture form an exciting symbiosis. Wide streets and art deco columns mix with Moorish elements. Even religions become manifest in the great Hassan II Mosque and the famous Notre Dame de Lourdes cathedral whilst you explore Casablanca*. The expert excursion: El Jadida – a gate to the world* is just as impressive: the well-preserved fortified city and former Portuguese base on the coast is a UNESCO World Cultural Heritage Site today. Alternatively, visit a world from 1001 Arabian Nights in the royal city of Rabat* with its magically decorated mausoleum for King Mohammed V. Traditional crafts are still alive behind the walls of the old town and the Andalusian Gardens serve as a peaceful oasis.

    Sunday, 19.08.2018

    Agadir, from 12.30 to 19.00 hrs

    Deepen your sense of relaxation on a stroll along the beach promenade of the spa city of Agadir. This is the starting point of your expert excursion: Taroudant – the little sister of Marrakesh*.

On Lanzarote you can explore the volcanoes of the southern island*, a bizarre moonscape of volcanoes and craters. Alternatively, on Gina Egenolf’s expert excursion: the fascinating island art of César Manrique*, you can marvel at the Jardin de Cactus with roughly 1,000 varieties of cactus before your eventful “Expedition Knowledge” comes to a close on Tenerife.
