Welcome to Dubai

Scroll down and slide with us through this vibrant city

#1 Burj Khalifa
The absolute highlight in Dubai of course is the Burj Khalifa - the tallest building in the world with its 828 metres. In Dubai everything is always bigger and better and so it is no wonder that we find the tallest building in the world is in this city.

#2 Dubai Mall
A shopping mall as a sight? Wait what? Sounds strange, but it really fits here. The Dubai Mall next to the Burj Khalifa is not just a shopping mall, it is a world of its own with more than 1200 shops, restaurants, aquarium and even an icerink.

#3 Dubai Fountain
The famous water games take place every evening in front of the Dubai Mall on the Burj Khalifa Lake. It is the largest fountain in the world and the water is dancing to music beats. There are also two afternoon shows but in the evening, the Dubai Fountain is definitely more impressive.

#4 Burj al Arab
The Burj Al Arab is one of the most luxurious and famous hotels in the world. It is located on an artificial island and a real eye-catcher due to its shape. Unfortunately, we can't just walk into the hotel because even if it's one of the top Dubai attractions, guests obviously have a certain demand of privacy too.

#5 Frame of Dubai
With the height of 150 metres the Dubai Frame is the largest picture frame in the world and at the same time an accessible building. Since its opening in 2018 it is one of the city's top attractions.

#6 Madinat Jumeirah
A city within the city: Madinat Jumeirah is built in the style of an ancient Emirati settlement.  It appears like an Arabian Disneyland with shops, restaurant and hotels but is definitely one of the absolute highlights while visiting Dubai.
