No idea why noone speaks about it much....we happened to see entrance, enquired and just went with a whim...BEST THING EVER

Well marked in English, Arabic and Hebrew, great sceneries of city and inside old city. Wandering in old city gives you vibe of culture and shopping/food. Ramparts walk opens window to the residential life in old city. Great views of Al aqsa as well....
Its priced at 25 ILS per adult and there are 2 loops- ticket valid for 2 days...the loop including Damascus gate is especially excellent.

We did the Northern route from Jaffa Gate to Lions Gate, although you can do the southern route. It was good to do, especially as the weather was good, but the views were not always that great. At Damascus gate you get good views to the dome of the rock, but most of the time it's just shabby rooftops. I would recommend doing it though.

We’re spending a few days in Jerusalem to escape the heat and humidity of the coast. Tonight we did the Old City Ramparts Walk, which is open at night (until 22:00) only for the month of August. The refreshing breeze and clear sky added to the enjoyment of the walk, as did the many interesting vistas.
At NIS 20 (10 for seniors) this makes for a cheap night out. There is a convenient new access point outside the Tower of David (actually in the moat)
Note there are plenty of steps to climb during the walk, some rather steep!

Jerusalem as seen from the height of the Old City walls. Mildley challenging historical adventure for the whole family.
The historical trek provides historical context and a bird’s eye breath taking view of the old city versus the new one, walking tour through the treasures of the past, the present and future entwined.
Free vocal tours with the application “Vocal Tours in Jerusalem”
3 trails:
1. Western Ramparts - open daily from 9:00-17:00 (winter until 16:00) - from Jaffa Gate to Dung Gate (you can descend at Zion's Gate), About 1.5 KM
2. Northern Ramparts - open daily except Friday 9:00-17:00 (winter until 16:00), from Jaffa Gate to Lion's Gate. (You can descend at New Gate, Damascus Gate, Herod's Gate, and Lion's Gate), About 3.5 KM for the full trail.
3. Third Trail - newly opened! - Round the city 360 degrees - one ticket for two days - for both Southern and Northern Ramparts. Descend from the Southern Walk at the Dung Gate, walk at the foot of the Eastern Wall, climb back on the Northern Walk from Lion's Gate, all the way back to Jaffa Gate.
Great price! Only 20 IL per person for both trails for two days!

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.
