Not many visitors find their way to the Knesset, which is a pity. For free you get a guided tour which is excellent. It is available in many diffrent languages. It starts with a short video on the historic moments that have taken place inside the Knesset. Walking through the historic buidling you feel the history. Many works of art... More

I was invited as a guest to sit in the Knesset, I really liked, even Benjamin Netanyahu was present. I really just wanted to take pictures from outside, but a guard told me I should come in, really nice!

Very much worth a visit to this interesting seat of Israeli Democracy. Remember to bring your passport to enter. Opposite the Kennesset is a beautiful Menorah (Candleabra) and lovely rose gardens in this area. While you are there go to visit the new Court House, also a beautiful building.

Our tour guide arranged for a private visit to the Knesset. Once through the security procedures I had the opportunity to see behind the scenes where Knesset members meet to discuss the affairs of state (Israel). Met with top official to the Prime Minister which was really an incredible experience.

The Knesset is available for visiting several days during the week with an English speaking guide as well as other languages. Our tour guide was very informative and receptive to all questions.
