What To Expect

Stop no. 1 - This impressive and iconic view of Jerusalem is the perfect backdrop to an introduction to Jerusalem. After a brief explanation of where we are, we will walk down the "Palm Sunday Road" and make our way to the next stop.
There are many peddlers at the observation deck and usually even a camel on hand for rides and photo-ops. Please be aware and act responsibly.

15 minutes • Admission Ticket Free

Dominus Flevit Church
Station 2 - This small but impressive church is located along the "Palm Sunday Road". It is traditionally associated with the tears shed by Jesus as he prophesied the destruction of Jerusalem and so the Church is shaped like a tear drop.
Take the time to take in the view from the adjacent deck in silent meditation. Don't forget to take a look inside the church with it's special window overlooking the old city and Church of the Holy Sepulcher.

Garden of Gethsemane
Station 3 - The "Palm Sunday Road" winds down the hill towards the Valley of Kidron. At the end of the road, a sharp turn leads from the noisy street to the quite and serene Olive tree garden with impressive trees that are hundreds or even thousands of years old. The Church of All Nations AKA The Church of the Agony, is built on the traditional site of the Garden of Gethsemane. Among these ancient trees Jesus walked and prayed on the night of his arrest as described in the Gospel.
It is a perfect place for prayer and reflection.

Tomb of the Virgin Mary
Station 4 - Located in the Valley of Kidron is the Tomb of Mary. Below the street level - all that is left from the impressive basilica that once stood here - is a beautiful example of Crusader period construction. On the right side of the wide stairway leading down to the crypt is the tomb of Queen Melisende of Jerusalem, daughter of King Baldwin II.

10 minutes • Admission Ticket Free

Pools of Bethesda
Station 5 - The Pools of Bethesda is the backdrop and location to the events described in the Gospel in John 5 where Jesus heals a man who has been unable to walk for 38 years. The adjacent Church of St. Ann is a beautiful example of neoclassic churches, it's echoes perfectly designed for singing!
The site is managed by the French "White Fathers" order. Admission fee is 5 shekels per person.

40 minutes • Admission Ticket Not Included

Damascus Gate
Station 7 - From the Austrian Hospice follow the market alley to the right (slightly up hill) until exiting the city walls through the Damascus Gate.
The current gate is part of the Ottoman period (circa 1536) construction of the walls of Jerusalem. Below it you can see the remains of the Roman period gates. The road from the gate (The road to Damascus) will take us to the Garden Tomb - one of the possible sites for the crucifixion, burial an resurrections of Jesus.

20 minutes • Admission Ticket Free

The Garden Tomb
Station 8 - The Garden Tomb is a possible location for the Crucifixion, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ as described in the Gospel. It was identified only in the late 19th century. The Garden is owned and managed by the Protestant Garden Tomb (Jerusalem) Association, a Charitable Trust based in the United Kingdom.
The Garden has many chapels and quiet corners for communion, prayer and reflection. Visitors can view the "Skull caves" of the hill of Golgotha and of course enter the empty tomb.
Entrance is free. A group visit requires a reservation (02-539-8100)
