Relaxation in historical surroundings. Anyone looking for an unusual conference location that also offers excellent service and comfort will find what they need in the Steigenberger Nile Palace. The hotel occupies a prime location on the banks of the Nile, in the heart of the historic centre of the city and is the perfect base for discovering the beauty of the surroundings at the end of a hard day’s work.

individual sites of the Necropolis of Thebes, the Valley of the Kings, the Valley of the Queens, the Ramesseum, the Colossi of Memnon and the Temple of Hatshepsut are all worthy of a visit.

The exceptional mixture of cultural highlights, relaxation and activity that awaits the visitor to Luxor is sure to suit all tastes. Nowhere do major cultural sites lie so close together as in this city, whose name comes from the Arab word for “the palaces”: Al-Uqsur. Thebes comes from the Greek; Homer rhapsodized about Luxor as “Thebes of a hundred gates”.

Despite the unbelievable multitude of cultural highlights a stay in Luxor is also a time for peace and relaxation. Here, where the Egyptian sun shines down from a cloudless sky all the year round, it is a pleasure to spend time in the pool or sit out until late in the balmy evening. Those looking for a lively ambience can stroll through the Sha’ria Al-Souq bazaar and wallow in the bright colours of the Orient, breathe in exotic aromas, taste the sweet delicacies of the region or rummage through the Bedouin handicrafts.

Either side of the lush green Nile Valley, the religious heart of ancient Egypt offers countless temples, museums and grave sites. The famous temple complex of Luxor, which was built in homage to the god Amun, dominates the city centre with its imposing obelisks and monumental statues. Viewed in the evening, when the whole complex is floodlit, it exudes a particular sense of mystery. Also on the banks of the Nile, some 3 km north of the Temple of Luxor, lies the Temple of Karnak, with its famous giant forest of columns flanking the central avenue. In addition to these, the

There is also no shortage of sporting opportunities. The Steigenberger Nile Palace offers a heated outdoor pool, a tennis court and a fitness and wellness area. Golf enthusiasts can use the nearby 18-hole golf course at special rates. A particular highlight is a trip in a hot air balloon over the Theban landscape. Starting at the Temple of Hatshepsut, this impressive flight goes south, passing over Qurna, the Ramesseum, Medinet Hadu and Malqata. Naturally, the Nile should also be part of any itinerary: a trip on a historical Nile sailing boat, a Felucca, is an unforgettable experience.


Catering in Luxor – food fit for a Pharaoh. The Steigenberger Nile Palace makes a point of pampering visitors with top quality cuisine, on the basis that culinary highlights are an essential ingredient of every successful conference. The unique culinary creations from our kitchens are at their best in exceptional settings, such as the Luxor temple complex. Three restaurants are ready to serve guests top quality, creative gourmet cuisine. The main restaurant, “The Nubian”, offers a buffet with a selection of local and international dishes while the “El Tarboush” treats guests to a wide choice of Lebanese dishes. In the “Casa di Napoli” guests can enjoy authentic Italian cuisine in the heart of Luxor. Freshly made cakes, ice cream and fresh juices can be found in the “Café des Délices”. The three bars are ideal meeting places for casual conversation when the work is done: the Pool Bar “Tropicana”, the “Arabesque” with its aromatic shish water pipes and the “Nile Bar and Lounge”, where one can spend the day relaxing and enjoying the fabulous views over the Nile. The Thai Restaurant “Bua Khao” is your chance to experience real Thai hospitality and cuisine with our experienced Thai Chefs and great ambiance over looking the river Nile, opening January 2008. A Saloon Bar is also due to open in January 2008. Anyone hoping to offer guests something truly special could opt for an entertaining themed evening. At the end of a tiring day it is good to relax in style – at the “Swimming Pool Party”, for example. Everyone is sure to have lots of fun in this informal ambience. The tables are set out round the pool, staff wear the splendid traditional Galabeyas and the atmosphere is rounded off by belly dancers and folkloric performances.

Crowning glories.

The “Moonlight Dinners” are also wonderfully atmospheric, with the menu of your choice served on the roof terrace, accompanied by fantastic views across the Nile and the unique atmosphere of a Middle-Eastern night.

In order to provide an informal environment for exchanging information, developing a team spirit and motivating your staff, the Steigenberger Nile Palace offers unusual event ideas that provide opportunities to share special experiences.

and try the traditional shisha or water pipes; Egyptian delicacies are on offer everywhere you look. Finally, everyone celebrates together with a hearty barbecue buffet under the open sky.

Yet the alluring delights can be also be experienced in great comfort away from the Steigenberger Nile Palace. A wide range of outstanding culinary ideas make every meal an unforgettable experience. Absolutely unique, for example, is the Gala Diner in the Hatshepsut temple complex. Entitled “The Night of the Pharaohs”, the ambience here is truly mystical. Breathtaking illumination drapes the ancient site in fascinating colours and takes guests on a journey through the past. The visitors are greeted by camels at the entrance to the three-storey temple complex, which nestles elegantly on a steep hillside. A luxurious tent is set up in front of the entrance, inside you meet temple dancers perform to gentle background music and serve up delicious dishes. “The Night of the Pharaohs” is a night of Middle-Eastern magic that you want to last forever! The crowning glory is a short walk over the mountain, which leads in about 50 minutes to the Valley of the Kings. The fantastic view at sunset is an unforgettable reward.

“Dahabia Nile Cruise” Magical hours can be spent on the Nile under starry Egyptian skies. The dinner cruise ship moors up at the hotel’s own jetty and provides both delicious meals and the perfect opportunity to enjoy the special atmosphere of a balmy night on the water. Intimate one-to-one conversations or festive events with up to 40 guests – these hours will stay in the memory forever. For larger groups we can organize several dahabia boats.

The “Aida Evenings” in the Steigenberger Nile Palace provide excellent food in a marvelous atmosphere, which even the most exacting guests will talk about for years to come. The world of the famous Verdi opera is conjured up in the temple complexes of Luxor or Habu, telling the story of the Nubian princess Aida, Amneris, the Pharaoh’s daughter and Radames, the soldier, who is in love with both. As they enter the temple, guests are met by an opulent stage setting, complete with wafts of smoke and the sounds of Verdi’s famous music. Dinner is eaten as if on a stage, while the waiters bring the delicious food dressed in extravagant operatic costumes.

An event is only judged a complete success if it has a good supporting programme. Sporting event or excursions – there is no limit to the opportunities available. Where better to combine work and pleasure than under the Egyptian sun? Where else to enjoy momentous experiences but in the historical surroundings of the city of Luxor?

“Felucca Sun Shine Breakfast & Sun Set Lunch” The Nile Valley between Luxor and Aswan has the most beautiful scenery in the entire region. If you choose to explore this famous river by day you can travel by Felucca, the typical Nubian sailing boats with their characteristic triangular sails. Over an opulent breakfast or a delicious lunch the visitor can gaze out over the wonderful surroundings. Lush vegetation on the banks of the river contrasts with the golden sand dunes and massive rocky outcrops of the foothills. The boat sails close to colourful Egyptian villages and visitors can watch children splashing and cattle cooling off in the water. “Island Dinner” Anyone who does not believe in flying carpets should take a trip to a picturesque island in the middle of the Nile. As soon as you leave the boat you feel as if you have been transported to the world-famous Khan El-Khalili bazaar in Cairo. Traders peddle wonderful silver jewellery; Middle-Eastern cafes invite passers-by to stop

“Black & White Dinner” Time to exceed your expectations. Experience the highest standards of luxury with our elegant and stylish Black & White Dinner. Tables are dressed in black and white, waiters and waitresses are wearing white gloves and a candle light set menu or buffet is available for your choice. “Champagne Breakfast” Toast and celebrate your visit to the capital of the ancient empire either on the 6th floor’s roof or the Pasha’s Pub outlet after a beautiful balloon ride.
