Das Königreich Jordanien ist ein Land mit hohem Wüstenanteil und zieht bereits seit gut 2.500 Jahren Touristen sowie Handelsleute, aber auch Flüchtlinge an. Wer sich für antike Zivilisationen und die Länder der Bibel interessiert, für den ist Jordanien mit seiner Hauptstadt Amman unbedingt einen Besuch wert. Nach der Hitze und dem Staub von Wadi Rum und Petra finden Reisende perfekte Entspannung in der am Mittelmeer gelegenen Küstenstadt Akaba oder am Roten Meer.

Holidays in Jordan


If the only sight worth seeing in Jordan were Petra, it would still be reason enough to put the country near the top of every traveller’s must-see list. But in a week – or even less –you can experience Mediterranean resorts, desert camps, Dead Sea escapes, sacred Biblical sites and the traces of every ancient civilization, major and minor.

City breaks in Jordan


There are cities in the Middle East richer in tourism sites than Jordan’s capital, Amman – though the museum at the Amman citadel Jabal al-Qal'a, dominated by the Temple of Hercules, is a time capsule of the great ancient civilisations. Otherwise, Amman is changing fast, with the downtown Abdali complex promising a little piece of Dubai-style swankiness - but you can still get a traditional Middle Eastern feast for just a couple of dinars.

Things to do in Jordan


Whether it’s on foot or on horseback, by day or candlelight, your first sight of Petra, the hidden Nabatean city located 140 miles (around a three-hour drive) from Amman and carved into the mountains of southern Jordan, is not an experience that’s easily forgotten. The desert expanse of Wadi Rum, four hours south of the capital, is the other main draw – whether for adventure sports enthusiasts, hikers (the famous Burdah Arch and Jebel Umm Adaami, the country’s highest mountain, are there to be climbed) or those in search of T.E. Lawrence’s authentic Arabia. But don’t forget the Dana Reserve Biosphere and its archaeological treasures – from ancient copper mines and Byzantine churches to Neolithic villages and a Roman aqueduct.
