Excursions from Sharm el Sheikh to Cairo and Luxor

Pyramids of Giza

The Pyramids of Giza are the only remaining of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World and are one of the most famous structures in the world. They are about 15 kilometers from downtown Cairo, the capital of Egypt, right on the outskirts of Giza, a suburb of Cairo with 2 million inhabitants. The distance from the city center of Giza is around 8 kilometers. The whole area is on the western side of the Nile, but some distance from it, which is why it is in the desert.

In addition to the three main pyramids, the Pyramid of Cheops, the Pyramid of Chephren and the Pyramid of Menkaure, the Pyramids of Gizeh also include the Great Sphinx of Gizeh, several other small side pyramids in which, for example, the wives of the pharaohs were buried, as well as workers' villages, temples and burial grounds.

The pyramids of Giza were built in the years 2620 to 2500 BC, which corresponds to the 4th dynasty. But even before that, in the 1st to 3rd dynasties, the approximately 3 square kilometer area of the pyramids of Giza and the Sphinx was used as the tomb of the pharaohs. However, it is unclear to what extent the tombs that were created at that time were destroyed during the construction of the pyramids.

The Egyptian Museum

The Egyptian Museum on the east bank of the Nile in Cairo was founded in 1857 by August Mariette and today includes around 150,000 exhibits from 4,500 years of Egyptian history. Although only a small part is accessible to visitors at all, the time available during a trip to Egypt is by far not enough to gain any insight, let alone an overview of the exhibits. It may even be difficult or impossible for the uninitiated to comprehend and classify the diversity and development of architecture and art. The Sphinx of Giza

The Sphinx of Giza

The Sphinx Giza is the largest Egyptian sculpture . It was carved out of the limestone rock of the Giza Plateau and depicts a reclining lion with a human head and the so-called Nemes headscarf. The Sphinx was originally painted with reddish ocher and also had a goatee, which fell off in ancient times. Pieces of it are now in the British Museum in London.

The Valley of the Kings

was a necropolis in ancient Egypt where 64 tombs and pits have been found to date. A radar anomaly, which is interpreted as a grave, is considered "KV65" but has not been further investigated to date. The tombs of the rulers of the New Kingdom (ca. 1550 BC to 1069 BC[2], 18th to 20th Dynasty) can be found in particular in the Valley of the Kings. The valley is located in Thebes-West, opposite Karnak, on the edge of the desert and hemmed in by high mountains, notably the natural rock pyramid of el Korn or el-Qurn (The Horn). Almost the entire area of West Thebes forms a huge necropolis. To the south lies the Valley of the Queens. Despite thousands of years of activity by grave robbers and plunderers, the Valley of the Kings still provided modern Egyptologists with numerous extremely valuable excavation finds. Among other things, the largely intact tomb of Tutankhamun (KV62) was discovered here in 1922 by Howard Carter.

the temple complex of Karnak

The Temples of Luxor and the Temples of Karnak were once linked by an avenue of sphinxes, which was followed by the processions of Ancient Egypt. Such a procession was associated with the Opetfest, the festival of renewal. The remains of this avenue of sphinxes are preserved at the entrance to both temples. It is very difficult to describe the temple complex of Karnak. This applies both to the area expansion and to the respective chronological allocation. The practically non-existent chronology within the many construction phases is also confusing, because many rulers built, demolished, renovated and rebuilt where there was space. It was also considered good manners to leave one's signature in Karnak. However, it was also considered "good manners" to tear down the sanctuaries of predecessors and to create your own buildings from their stones, or at least to scratch out the name cartouches and stylized faces. Hatshepsut, Amenhotep IV (Achnaton) and Tutankhamun are famous examples of this. The sometimes very poor state of preservation of individual areas does not make things any easier either. We recommend the light and sound show that takes place every evening in the complex near the Holy Lake. Comprehensible explanations are underpinned with lighting effects that highlight individual construction phases and also assign them to their chronology and builder. Basically, the entire complex can be divided into three districts, which were dedicated to all gods. On the one hand this is the area of Mut in the south, on the second in the north the area of Month and on the third in the center the largest and most complex area, the area of Amun. In order not to lose orientation, only the central district of Amun is shown on the drawing below, which - from a tourist point of view - is also the most interesting and without question the most monumental area of the temple complex. This becomes clear to every visitor who strolls along the avenue of sphinxes and sees the mighty first pylon growing like a mountain in front of them into the eternally blue sky

The Colossi of Memnon

Colossi of Memnon are two ancient Egyptian colossal statues from the 14th century BC standing side by side. They are in the Nile valley not far from the Valley of the Kings (Bibân el-Molûk) in West Thebes. The statues were in the past in front of the pylons of the entrance to the Temple of Amenhotep III. (Egyptian Amenhotep III), an 18th dynasty pharaoh.

The Hatshepsut Temple

Located at Deir el Bahri on the west bank of the Nile in West Thebes, the Hatshepsut Temple is one of the most fascinating sights and an impressive testament to ancient Egyptian architecture. Just as extraordinary as its construction is the special feature that the construction of the Hatshepsut Temple was ordered by a woman. The magnificent limestone temple, which has been well preserved to this day, was built in just 15 years. This so-called million-year house designates the royal mortuary temple and was an expression of the mystical union of the king with a powerful Egyptian deity, which caused the king to continue to exist.

The Hatshepsut Temple tells the story of a successful woman in ancient Egypt. Hatshepsut was the daughter of Thutmose I. After the death of her husband Thutmose II, she took over the affairs of state for Thutmose III, the rightful heir to the throne, who was still a minor at the time. According to current law, Hatshepsut herself was not entitled to inherit and nevertheless had herself crowned pharaoh in the second year of her reign. During this time, she lacked acceptance as a woman and faced reprisals. This happened despite the fact that she achieved considerable political success. Under the reign of the 18th Dynasty Queen, who ruled from 1479 until her death in 1458 BC. ruled, Egypt experienced a period of great economic boom and a long period of peace.
