As a travel destination, Oman is still a real insider tip. But if you visit the sultanate in the east of the Arabian Peninsula, you will find beautiful landscapes, endless dream beaches and a real paradise for adventurers.

One of the most popular destinations in Oman is the former capital Nizwa. The oasis city, which is one of the religious and political centers of the country and is considered one of the most beautiful cities in Oman, is located at the foot of the Hadjar Mountains in the center of the country. The best way to get to Nizwa is by car. The region has a well-developed road network. The nearest international airport is in the capital Muscat, about 100 kilometers away.


Oman is still a great insider tip for tourists from all over the world. But if you are in the northeast of the small sultanate, you will not get past the settlement of Qalhat directly on the Atlantic Ocean.

New ancient world cultural heritage

The ancient city, which was the first capital of Oman in the 13th century, has been on UNESCO’s list of World Heritage Sites since June 2018. Finally, the city offers numerous ancient ruins and burial sites that are always worth a visit. The ruin site, which is known far beyond the country’s border, is very difficult to reach only with a four-wheel drive vehicle or on foot. Nevertheless, a visit is definitely worth it. The largest and most important architectural monument in this impressive settlement is the mausoleum of Bibi Maryam. The large tomb is the best preserved structure in the entire complex.

Culture and relaxation

At the gates of the city, which was an important port city on the east coast of Arabia between the 11th and 15th centuries, the port is another important attraction for visitors. Those looking for relaxation and refreshment will also find a spacious, dreamy beach in Qalhat. Away from the crowds of tourists, you can enjoy a lot of bathing fun here. 20 kilometers south of Qalhat is the 70,000-inhabitant city of Sur, which is also worth a visit.


Oman is becoming increasingly popular with tourists from all over the world. One of the most popular destinations in the sultanate is the city of Nizwa. The former capital of the Arab country, which lies at the foot of the Hajar Mountains, offers numerous sights.

Great fortress and Quabus mosque

The huge fortress of the oasis city with an almost 30 meter high tower can be seen from afar. From here you have a great overview of the entire region. The impressive large complex is not only one of the oldest, but also one of the most impressive fortresses in Oman. And the Qaboos Mosque, the so-called Friday Mosque, with its huge gold-blue dome should definitely not be missed when traveling to Nizwa. Another world-famous attraction are the Falaj canals, which are more than 500 years old. The region’s traditional irrigation system has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site for many years. Another real must for Nizwa visitors is the large soukh of the important trading city, which was restored only a few years ago. In addition to countless traditional handmade products, the large trading district also has many local spices as well as fresh fruit and vegetables ready. The city of Nizwa is also a very popular starting point for extensive tours in the mountains. As an oasis city, Nizwa also has numerous parks, orchards and palm groves to offer.
