It was more interesting than I was expecting. Nice to watch the Tuareg silversmiths working the traditional way using fire.

A must see if you happen to be in Agadez! Very interesting also because the old houses are still inhabited by the original owners who have been owning them for generations. Nobody ever complains here if you take photos. A very nice travel experience that one should not miss.

Agadez doesn't get much tourism these days due to the security situation, but I visited the old quarter with a staff member from my hotel who showed me around, and felt perfectly safe. Most of the tourist shops have closed down, but there are still a number of attractions worth seeing, including the grande mosque and the German explorer Heinrich Barth's house. It's worth mentioning that the Heinrich Barth house is an actual house with a family living in it, but they were happy to show us around. There is a room set aside with a number of artifacts from his travels, and, surprisingly, they even had brochures in French, German, and English with information about his life and travels. Walking through the old quarter, a couple families also let us visit to check out the old style of houses and show us traditional leatherwork.

If you're in Agadez you're already well off the beaten travel path of most. The old quarter has a few neat shops, it's not bustling post the end of major French tourism to the area, but has enough cool Tuareg items to make it interesting.

Wonderful town worth a visit. Unfortunately very difficult to access, for security reasons. I have to say I felt perfectly safe but I visited the town together with friends living there.
