Beauty has an address
Once upon a time...Sinbad the Sailor, the Frankincense Route and the Three Wise Men from the East. Oman's eventful past is fascinating and traces of the country’s 5,000 years of history can be found everywhere. Around a seven-hour flight from Germany, located in the southeast of the Arabian Peninsula, travellers immerse themselves in a world of 1001 Nights.

The Sultanate is known for its diversity. Here, contrasting landscapes such as golden sandy deserts, lush green oases, mountain peaks with heights of up to 3,000 metres and miles of beaches come together – a true paradise for outdoor lovers! Exotic flavours make up the country’s varied cuisine. Ancient traditions are still alive in Oman today and are firmly rooted in people's everyday lives. Travellers can expect worthwhile encounters with the locals who are known for their great hospitality and warmth.
