Points of Interest in Kayseri
If you are interested in culture and history, Kayseri and its surroundings have a lot to offer you. You can explore the city with a walk through the center to Kayseri Kalesi.

If you want to get acquainted with the local culture in an original way, go for a Turkish evening in a cave restaurant.

Ski resort Ecriyes
Kayseri is located at the foot of the mountain Ecriyes, which is about 30 kilometers away from the city. With an height of more than 3900 meters, the mountain can be seen from all over the city. The ski resort of Erciyes is relatively unknown, this is because Kayseri mainly serves as a transit location to well-known tourist attractions in Cappadocia. The top of the mountain is covered with an eternal layer of snow.
