Gaziantep

  • Gaziantep Sunken Town Halfeti
  • Gaziantep Bazarr Copper Vase
  • Gaziantep Ancient Mosaic
The Dedeman Gaziantep is located in the heart of one of Turkey’s most productive areas. Gaziantep is the largest city in Anatolia and the sixth largest in the country, and the Dedeman Gaziantep is its largest hotel and convention center. The city is responsible for four percent of Turkey's overall industrial output as well as being the center of pistachio cultivation and having a significant number of the country's olive presses. The airport is only 35 kilometers (21 miles) away, while major industrial parks are located within just minutes of the Dedeman Gaziantep. But so are many of the natural wonders that define this region that have made it such an attractive site for settlement for over 6,000 years. The region features a multitude of ancient artifacts which have been neatly preserved in Gaziantep's many museums. Ancient bazaars featuring handcrafted copper works, small boutiques selling native baklava, and historic buildings provide plenty of excursions within the city, while the region provides many opportunities for nature lovers to explore and discover its beautiful landscape. In short, there is simply no better location to hold a meeting in Anatolia than the Dedeman Gaziantep if you enjoy superior facilities in a setting that is as full of economic promise as it is history.

Nearby Attractions

Historical Bazaar

This covered Ottoman-era bazaar features a nearly bewildering array of copper works from the copper workshops at the nearby castle, as well as a large number of hand-woven and machine-made carpets. The ambiance and the architecture make it well worth the visit even if copper and interior décor are not on your must-have list.

Gaziantep Castle

Imposing and solid, Gaziantep Castle has been undergoing extensive beautification and restoration efforts which have yielded interesting archaeological finds that have, unfortunately, done little to illuminate its obscure origins. The bulk of the structure in its current form dates back to the reign of the Byzantine Emperor Justinian in the 6th century C.E. Despite this, it is certain that several of the remaining towers are of Roman origin. Based on inscriptions, other towers must date from the Ottoman-era, and there is also evidence of a ruined mosque.

Hasan Süzer Ethnography Museum

Photographs of brave martyrs who valiantly resisted French invaders during the Turkish War of Independence are set side-by-side with antique weapons, each bearing silent witness to the sacrifice these men and women made for the Republic. Set around a courtyard covered in multi-coloured stone, there are many artefacts from the region on display, as well as lifelike models of people engaging in daily life in Gaziantep as it looked during bygone eras. 

Gaziantep Archaeology Museum

This museum boasts an extensive array of artefacts from the Neolithic Age to the Byzantine Empire. Neolithic ceramic pieces, figures, and seals from the Bronze Age, stone and bronze objects, jewellery, ceramics, coins, glass objects, mosaics and statues from the Hittite, Erratum, Persian, Roman and Byzantine periods have been collected under the same roof in well-presented, informative exhibits.

Zeugma Mosaic Museum

This 2,248 square mt (24,297 square foot) museum contains an unrivalled collection of antique mosaics from the Roman and Late Antique periods. Turkish bath mosaics, mosaics found in villas located on the banks of the Euphrates, such as mosaics from the Poseidon and Euphrates villas, as well as those from the Dionysus villas, are on display here. A section containing Byzantine church mosaics is particularly noteworthy.

Rumkale

Rumkale was a key Byzantine fortress on the river Euphrates. The fortress, now situated across a peninsula created by the reservoir of Birecik Dam is currently only accessible by boat; however, it will soon re-open for visitors following an extensive restoration project that includes a new footbridge and several cafes.
