In the heart of Jerusalem, the First Station is a major center of entertainment, culture and culinary delights. The complex is accessible and open to the general public - both local Jerusalemites and tourists, and is a lively focus of activities, with something to offer for a variety of wishes and needs, on the go almost all hours of the day, every day of the week. The Station's location in the city's downtown tourist and culture area makes it a bridge between neighborhoods and communities, and the first station for any visit or night out in the heart of Jerusalem.

There are so many places to eat here there has to be something for everyone. You can also hire bikes or kids can try out little electric vehicles. One evening when we went there was also a free concert, which seems to happen often.

There is plenty of space for children play on the grounds as well as some shops and some boots for custom jewellery as well as food... More

Food, markets, shops, bric a brac , culture and marvellous coffee what more can a renewed 1896 railway station offer. Well no trains but Israeli dancing where the platform used to be and a sampler of the unique demographic and ethnic mix which contributes to the vibrant mix of the City. It is also Kosher for Pesach.
