It is really very interesting to do this walk because, at same time, you are looking at the old city (from above) and you are looking at the modern city outside the Wall. Don’t forget to take very comfortable shoes because the walk is quite uneven. Enjoy!

Fun! The northern walk is longer and has more interesting views. Your ticket gives you access to both - northern and southern walks. It’s a one-way route so make sure to plan for a different return trip if you need to come back to Jaffa gate (the starting point).

It is not a walk for people who suffer from fear of hights, and you must be fairly fit because there are a lot af high steps to be climbed, but it is well worth the effort

The ramparts themselves are not particularly spectacular although you get a bit of history from the time the Jordanians defended the city in the 1948 war. What you do get out of the walk is fantastic views down into the old city and out into the old city. Well worth going on the walk

The best lookout over jerusalem old city and new city. 360 degrees of the city from Jaffa Gate to lions Gate (including the Roman square) or from Jaffa Gate to Zion’s Gate. Great to find the hidden fortification elements build in the walls and secondary used stones within the walls. Great value for money as the some 5$ ticket is valid for both ramparts for two days. Don’t miss: the tree caps lookout on top of Damascus Gate. Free vocal guided tour (scan it at the cashier), great selfie spot: at the southern side you can dress in ottoman style (free. Ask at the cashier), in the northern side you have few build in selfie fun boards. Winter it open till 16:00, summer - the southern side is open until 22:00 so it’s great to see the city lights as well.
