Planning Abroad to Accra? Don't Miss Our Version of Must-Sees!

Stays abroad must have been in need of fulfillment! This is our version of must-sees if you spend some time in Accra!

Accra is the capital of Ghana and at the same time the most populous city in the country. It is located in the south of the country on the Atlantic Ocean and is the economic and political center of the country.

Christianborg Castle on the Ghanaian coast has been the seat of government since 1957. The castle was built by Sweden in 1652 and conquered by Denmark a few years later. The Danes then gave the fortress, which is also called Osu Castle, its name. It is not allowed to be photographed and is not open to the public.

The National Museum opened in March 1957, making it the oldest of the six museums owned by the Ghana Museums and Monuments Authority. The permanent exhibition includes archaeological exhibits as well as exhibits on the pre-colonial and colonial history and culture of the country.

Independence Arch

The monument is in Independence Square. The triumphal arch was built in 1957 after independence. One of the stones also contains the state's principle: Ghana: Freedom and Justice.

Labadi Beach

On the city beach of Accra, where some of the city's more expensive hotels are located. The hustle and bustle on the beach can be observed very nicely from the beach bars and cafes. The beach is not necessarily suitable for swimming, but it is definitely worth a visit!

Jamestown

Jamestown is one of the oldest neighborhoods in the city. It was founded in the 17th century by the British, the then colonial rulers, and was later incorporated. The old lighthouse and the fishing port are definitely worth seeing.
