The Jogja Heritage Walk Indonesien

Jogjakarta ... the cradle of civilization on Java. Seat of power and magnificent temple. Yogyakarta was known for its endless charms under the motto "Jogja The Never Ending Asia". Today it is also known as "Jogja Istimewa", a slogan that highlights its special values...

This city is one of the most important cultural centers in Indonesia. From a stroll through the living museum of the Kraton or the Keraton (Sultan's Palace), to hanging out in the famous Alun Alun, to watching silversmiths in Kotagede making fantastic jewellery, and perhaps doing some shopping in Malioboro Road. Hunting after sunrise in famous temples like Prambanan and Borobudur in the neighbouring town of Magelang are just some of the many ways to never get bored in this relatively small but lively town.

Surakarta, or colloquially called Solo, is located in the south, in the province of Jawa Tengah on the Bengawan River. Surakarta, together with Yogyakarta, is one of the two centres of Javanese culture where the old courtly traditions have the strongest influence. Reminiscent of this tradition are the palace complex of the Sunan (King) of Surakarta, the Kraton or Kasunanan, and the "junior court" Mangkunegaran, well-preserved testimonies to Java's rich history during Dutch colonial rule. Your driver will certainly report about the origin and demise of the farms again very flowery and with a wink...

Candi Sukuh - "the small temple in the mountains" - is located on the mountain Lawu, at an altitude of 910 m. The temple, a real gem, was already built in 1437. The temple was built high in the mountains - intended as a holy place - to worship the ancestors. The thematic reliefs in the temple bear witness to life, birth and also have sexual education as a theme. Lingga and Yoni are depicted several times as symbols of fruitfulness...B&B, lunch

The Bukit Bintang - the "Star Hill" - located in the middle of the city offers a magnificent view over the city.
