Flights to Algiers

Located on the Mediterranean Sea, Algeria’s capital is called Alger la Blanche (Algiers the White) in French, because of the white colour of its buildings. Seemingly frozen in time, the majority of high-rises and villas exhibit French-influenced, richly textured architecture that’s fascinating for any traveller who books flights to Algiers.

Whether it’s trawling through the ancient ruins of Casbah (now a Unesco World Heritage Site) or venturing outside of the downtown area into the more contemporary neighbourhoods, there’s something for everyone in this stunning city.

As the largest country in Africa – though vast parts of it are covered by the Sahara Desert and two national parks in the south – Algeria has many neighbours. Its big cities are influenced by those nearby, including Morocco, Tunisia, Libya, Niger, Mali and Mauritania.

The people of Algiers are warm, friendly and enjoy their free time. In the evening, many residents can be seen out and about, socialising at a seafront cafe or dining in one of the many restaurants. Arabic is the official language, but French is widely spoken. This influences the city’s nightlife scene, with restaurants and cafes focusing heavily on French, Middle Eastern and North African food and drink.

Whether it’s stopping over for a weekend or spending the week there, it’s well worth crossing Algiers off your travel bucket list.

What to do in Algiers

Marvel at the Maqam Echahid (Martyr’s Memorial)

Opened on the 20th anniversary of Algeria’s independence in 1982, the Maqam Echahid – or Martyrs’ Memorial – has become one of the most iconic landmarks of Algiers. Soaring 92m into the sky, the impressive structure is made up of three concrete palm fronds that represent Algeria’s agriculture, culture and industry.

Explore the Jardin d’Essai

The Jardin d’Essai – also known as the Botanical Gardens of Hamma – dates back to the French occupation’s early years. Today, the large dazzling botanical garden is considered one of the finest in the world, with more then 1,200 species of exotic plants and trees. It’s also where the Algerian National Institute of Agronomical Research – which is open to visitors – is located.

Take a cable car to the Notre Dame d’Afrique

Standing on a 124m cliff that surveys the Bay of Algiers is the spectacular Notre Dame d’Afrique. Created by the famous architect Jean-Eugene Fromageau, the best way to get to this 18th century Catholic basilica is by cable car. This fascinating sand-coloured structure is home to a black stone statue of the Virgin Mary.

Where to eat in Algiers

Le Taj Mahal (Indian)

Algiers may not be one of the obvious places to go looking for Indian cuisine, but Le Taj Mahal is one of the city’s hottest restaurants. This vegan and vegetarian friendly spot serves up delicious tandoori dishes and kebabs, cooked – and spiced – to your liking.

Jenina (Algerian)

For a taste of traditional Algerian cuisine, you’ll be hard pushed to beat Jenina. This family-run restaurant has been in business since 1968 and remains one of the most sought-after high-end establishments, attracting royalty and politicians. Be sure to try Jenina’s signature mechoui.

La Palmeraie (Moroccan)

This Bedouin tent-style eatery lies out of town, but feels a whole lot different. There are carpets on the walls and ceiling, and diners sit on low couches around one huge table. Food is a traditional mix of hotpots and meats, after which partying with other guests is encouraged.

El Aurassi Hotel

Designed by the late Italian architect Luigi Moretti, El Aurassi has undergone renovations since it opened in 1975, with some of its decor auctioned off. While the five-star property is more geared towards the business traveller, it’s well worth stopping by its lounge (which is open to non-guests) where you can enjoy stunning views of Algiers.
