10 Best Things to Do in Jerusalem

1
Planning a trip to Jerusalem? Jerusalem is an ancient city with some of the holiest sites in the world for Jewish, Muslim, and Christian tourists and residents. When visiting any new city – especially one in a foreign language – it’s best to come with a game plan. We’ve compiled a list of some of the best things to do in Jerusalem, as well as a few tips for your visit.

• The Old City of Jerusalem should be the first on your list. Be prepared to spend at least one full day here – or several. The Old City is divided into four sections – there are Armenian, Muslim, Jewish, and Christian quarters. In the Christian quarter, try to stop by The Church of the Holy Sepulchre on a Sunday to catch their religious services. In the Jewish quarter, be sure to visit the Hurva Synagogue and the Western Wall.

• After the Old City, head to the upscale Mamilla Mall for some of Jerusalem’s best shopping, restaurants, and cafes. Come during Chanukah, and you’ll find some of the best sufganiyot in the country.

• Spend a day at Montefiore Winery! Montefiore Winery was founded in 2013 to celebrate the 150th anniversary of Mishkenot Sha’ananim, the first Jewish neighborhood to be built outside of the Old City. Back home, relive the experience by ordering from All in Wine, a China-Israel wine importer and distributor.

• Sandwiched between Katamon and Baka, Emek Refaim is an area to shop, eat, and drink. Check out this location’s cafes and falafel joints – there are some real gems here.

• Just up the train tracks from Emek Refaim, you’ll find First Station. First Station is a great place to unwind and meet up with friends, and they also have several activities for children. Check their schedule before you go.

• A trip to Jerusalem wouldn’t be complete without a visit to the “shuk,” or market, “Machane Yehuda.” The shuk can seem like a huge outdoor grocery store, but it’s so much more than that. Check out its “side streets.” Go during the day for falafel and pastries, and return at night for music, events, and dinner.

• Spend a day at Yad Vashem, the country’s most famous Holocaust museum. The museum is both tasteful and informative. The Hall of Names contains over six hundred photographs and fragments of Pages of Testimony.

• Book a tour at the place where all of Israel’s most important political decisions take place: The Knesset. The Knesset runs free tours and activities for the public.

• The Israel Museum is one of the leading art and architecture museums in the world. Their exhibits contain artifacts ranging back five thousand years old. The museum sometimes features Chinese art, such as the art of Chinese dissident and artist Ai Wei Wei in its 2017-2018 collection Maybe, Maybe Not.

6
• After a long day, you’ll want a comfortable and homey place to rest – with the freedom to tour Jerusalem your way. Try SweetInn for your next Israel trip. SweetInn has forty apartments throughout Jerusalem, all centrally located: from City Center, to Rechavia, to Mamilla. With SweetInn, you get the independence of renting an apartment in a prime location with all the comforts and amenities of a hotel.
