I went after we visited the Medina, and the garden was such a reprieve. The architecture was fascinating and the gardens themselves were lovingly kept. I definitely recommend it if you have the chance!
How to get to the Jardin Marjorelle:
To get to Jardin Majorelle, you can either take a cab from the city center or head there on foot. The Jardin is located in the Gueliz district of Marrakech, and it’s about a 15-20 minute walk from main tourist attractions like Djemaa el Fna and the Medina.
If you’re short on time or just feeling lazy, taking a taxi is probably your best option – most drivers will know where to go without any extra directions. Just keep in mind that it can get pretty busy around Jardin Majorelle, so be prepared for some crowds if you visit during peak season.
How much does it cost to visit the garden?
At Jardin Majorelle, you can expect to pay around 50-60 MAD ($5-6 USD) for entrance. There are some discounted rates available for students and seniors, but keep in mind that these discounts only apply if you can present valid ID at the ticket counter.
Despite the crowds and slightly higher price point, Jardin Majorelle is definitely worth a visit if you’re looking for some Instagrammable photo ops or want to learn more about Moroccan gardening and botany.
The garden is quite large, with lots of winding paths to explore and impressive cacti and succulents on display. There’s also a small museum on site that houses artworks by famous Moroccan painter Yves Saint Laurant which was super cool to see.
Jardin Majorelle is a beautiful spot that’s definitely worth checking out if you’re in Marrakech. Just be prepared for crowds and be sure to get there early to beat the heat!
