Day 2: City tour in Doha: between old and new

After a hearty breakfast, you will be greeted by a German-speaking local tour guide in the hotel lobby. Together you set out to explore the fascinating capital of the Gulf State - Doha. The cityscape is characterized by modern, impressive skyscrapers and futuristic construction projects. If you take a closer look, you will also find valuable gems from bygone times.
In the newly established National Museum of Qatar (Qatar) you will first be introduced to the history of the emirate before the oil boom and the rapid rise from nomadism to one of the richest countries in the world. The museum building is also a highlight in itself with its modern architectural style.
Now that you have got a first glimpse into the history of the country with a good 2.7 million inhabitants, you continue to the modern part of Doha. Along the Corniche boulevard, you'll reach the West Bay District skyscraper with the Al Fardan Towers and government buildings. During the journey you can enjoy the view of the impressive and rapidly growing skyline with a photo stop.
Shortly afterwards you will reach the artificial, approximately 400 hectare island The Pearl. In addition to Porto Arabia, several marinas, luxury villas, hotels, schools, shopping centers and residential buildings offer enough infrastructure to accommodate around 30,000 people. Here you have the opportunity to enjoy the view over the bay to the city center along the promenade.
When visiting the nearby Katara cultural district, you will experience the beautiful oriental buildings which house art galleries, the opera, markets, leisure facilities and a mosque.
After the cultural impressions you set off in the direction of the Aspire Zone with the Torch Hotel and the Villagio Mall, which you can visit from the outside.
On the way there, you will also marvel at the Imam Muhammad bin Abdulwahhab Mosque.
After a short stop in the Aspire Zone, move on to the historic Souq Waqif bazaar. Spices and the finest oriental specialties are on sale in the numerous stalls. A dinner together in this traditional setting rounds off your first day in Qatar in an atmospheric way.

Day 5: North of Qatar - a cultural journey through time into the history of Qatar

After an invigorating breakfast in the hotel, you embark on a journey back in time to the beginnings of Qatar's history. This round trip takes you to the north of the peninsula, initially to the port city of Al Khor, just under 60 kilometers north of Doha. There is Qatar's historic center for fishing and pearl diving, which is typical of the Gulf. Witnesses of these past days in the otherwise modern Qatar are the dhows - the small fishing boats that used to be used for work at sea and are now often used for panoramic boat tours.
A little further north is the Al Thakira nature reserve with the mangroves, which are a welcome green contrast to the wider desert landscape all year round. You will then visit the Al-Zubara Fort, which, in conjunction with the archaeological excavation sites of the coastal town of Zubara, is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
You will spend the afternoon in Doha again, where you can marvel at impressive works of art from different eras and continents in the gigantic Museum of Islamic Art. The important collection includes works from many countries influenced by Islam from Spain to India and the contrast between historical works of art exhibited in a modern building makes your stay here one of the highlights of your New Year's Eve trip.
Today's program is rounded off with a dinner right on the Corniche. From the restaurant you can also enjoy the delicious Lebanese specialties while looking out at the panorama of the Doha skyline. A great way to end your trip. After a little free time in the hotel (the rooms will be available to you until your departure around midnight), drive to the airport.

Day 6: Return flight from Doha via Istanbul

Today it is time to say goodbye to Doha and the emirate of Qatar (Qatar). From Hamad International Airport you fly with Turkish Airlines and the sun in your luggage first to Istanbul and then on to your departure airport.
