The history of the city of Accra dates back to the 15th century. Founded by the Ga people, the city was already an important trading center of the country in its original years. Ghana's colonial history led to the existence of a British, Dutch and Danish part of the city in the 19th century. Accra experienced a further economic boom with the development of the city's port and the rail link to Sekondi-Takoradi. Today, Accra offers a cornucopia of international colonial history. Discover famous sights - such as Osu Castle, the Kwame Nkrumah Mausoleum or the Memorial Park - on a guided city tour.
A visit to the Aburi Botanical Garden promises relaxing moments between your conferences. Another nature experience is a safari in the Shai Hills. You will experience the beautiful flora and fauna of the country up close and personal and can escape the hustle and bustle of the city for a few hours to recharge your batteries.
Accra also has a lot to offer in terms of culinary delights: The traditional Ghanaian cuisine is based on a balanced interplay of regional and international products such as millet, cassava, various nuts, fish and meat. The best way to enjoy the traditional dishes is over dinner. The ideal conclusion is the nightlife of Accra! The streets are bustling with life - often small pubs are lined up next to each other, where Azonto music is played.
