What makes Dubai so special?

Dubai is the second largest of the United Arab Emirates (UAE) after Abu Dhabi. Within the last 50 years, Dubai has experienced a rapid development to become one of the most travelled metropolises in the world. Dubai’s origins go back to a small village that lived from fishing and pearl trading on the Arabian Gulf. Today, impressive superlative sights await you in Dubai, mixed with Arabian hospitality and ancient desert traditions.

In Dubai, the sun shines more than 300 days a year. The best time of year for a holiday in Dubai is between November and April. Then you can expect pleasantly warm temperatures of up to 30 degrees. In the summer months it gets quite hot – temperatures of up to 45 degrees are not uncommon.

Flying high: sights to remember

If you visit Dubai, the city’s landmark will immediately catch your eye: The Burj Khalifa, 828 metres high, is currently the tallest building in the world. The view from the observation deck at sunset is particularly impressive. Tickets for this should definitely be booked in advance.

Directly afterwards, you should not miss another highlight: Every evening from 6 p.m., beautiful water, light and sound shows take place at the foot of the Burj Khalifa at the Dubai Fountain with the highest water fountain in the world.

The man-made islands off Dubai are also world-famous. The Palm Jumeirah group of islands resembles the shape of a palm tree. In addition to magnificent luxury properties, it is home to the famous Atlantis The Palm hotel, an entertainment district, shopping malls and sandy beaches.

The place where past, present and future meet in Dubai is the Dubai Frame. This building, reminiscent of a picture frame, offers a view of modern Dubai from one side. If you look through the frame from the other side, you will see the old district of Deira. In the museum inside the building, you can gain insights into Dubai’s history.

In 2022, two new attractions opened their doors to the public in Dubai: the Mohammed Bin Rashid Library, a spectacular library with seven floors, and the Museum of the Future, where visitors can venture a glimpse into the future.

A paradise for shopping lovers

In Dubai, you can spend entire days just shopping. The Dubai Mall is the world’s largest shopping centre. Besides more than 1,200 shops, there is a huge aquarium, an ice rink and a cinema to discover. Shopping fans will also find themselves in paradise at the Emirates Mall. This mall is also famous for its indoor ski area. If you prefer traditional shopping, you should do so at one of the numerous souks. At these markets you will find everything from jewellery and fabrics to spices and other souvenirs.

Beach and desert activities

Dubai is known for its beautiful sandy beaches. On Dubai’s beaches you can sunbathe, watch the sunset, enjoy water sports, stroll along the promenade or relax with the family.

An adventure that should not be missed on a holiday in Dubai is a desert safari. It’s best to book an organised tour where you can experience the red desert sand, camels and desert traditions first hand.

Dubai International Airport is the most important airport in the Middle East and the third busiest in the world. It has the international abbreviation DXB and is located five kilometres east of the city centre.
