Auf den Spuren des Weihrauchs aus dem Oman

All regions

Al Batinah north

In Al Batinah North, which is situated at about 230 km from the state capital Muscat, there is a part of the Omani coast. The region has always been of great importance because of its favourable climate, which allows a great deal of agriculture.

Al Batinah south

The region of Al Batinah South comprises the coastal area between Muscat and Al Batinah North. The capital of the region is Ar Rustaq. As it is a region of agricultural significance – most of the country's fruit and vegetable grow there – it used to be attacked by pirates and Persians quite often.

Al Buraimi

The region of Al Buraimi is situated in the northwest of Oman, on the border to the city al-Ayn (United Arab Emirates). In its present boundaries, Al Buraimi has only existed since 2006, when the area was separated from neighbouring Al Dhahirah.

Al Dhahira

The Ad Dhahira region is located in the west of Oman, on the border with Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates. The capital and cultural centre of the region is Ibri with 160,000 inhabitants. The landscape of the region is characterized by desert, which is populated by Bedouins.

Al Dhakhiliyah

Ad Dakhiliyah literally means "the inside". This name derives from the geographical location of the region, as Ad Dakhiliyah is located in the interior of Oman and is bordered to the west by the Hajar Mountains.

Al Sharqiyah north

The two Ash Sharqiyah regions created in 2011 are considered to be the geographical jewel of Oman. The landscape and infrastructure are very varied and range from white sandy beaches to a turtle sanctuary, fishing opportunities and an ancient Dhow shipyard to giant desert dunes.

Al Sharqiyah south

The Ash Sharqiyah region was divided into a northern and a southern part in 2011. In the south lie the large coastal areas of Oman and wonderful wadis, which turn into fast-flowing streams when it rains. The region is worth a visit just for the trip along the coast.

Al Wusta

Al Wusta is one of the largest regions of Oman, the capital is Haima. The landscape is particularly beautiful with its kilometre-long sandy beaches, which are a paradise for birdwatchers and other nature lovers.


Dhofar is best known for its rainy season. The "Khareef", a permanent, very fine drizzle, plunges the region into a lush green all summer long. This natural phenomenon attracts hundreds of thousands of locals and tourists every year.


The Musandam peninsula lies south of the "Strait of Hormuz". This makes it a central, strategic location for the Sultanate: anyone wishing to ship oil from the Persian Gulf must pass through this strait.


Muscat is the capital of Oman, the largest and most populated city and at the same time eponymous for the region. The Sultan has his headquarters in this city which offers visitors a variety of experiences.
