About
The most panoramic view of Jerusalem, together with the Judean Desert, this is the perfect place to end the #99 bus tour, especially at the twilight hour, when the light gives real meaning to the description "Jerusalem of Gold."

The Haas Promenade offers a terrific view of the city. We took a group of young people here (about 40) when staying at the Beit Ben Yehuda hostel. it is an easy walk - and gave us a great place to hang out. One caution - is if you walk all the way down the bottom, you exit through a potentially hostile neighbourhood.

The Haas promenade offers a sweeping view of Jerusalem. If you’re after a daylight view, try to go on a clear, sunny day. We visited around noon, and with the sun to our back, the contrast of blue sky against the white buildings was spectacular! A plaque points out the major landmarks. The old and the new, with several thousand years of history in between – stretched out in front of you!

The Haas Promenade is one of the best places to start a tour of Jerusalem. This panoramic viewpoint offers a sweeping view of the city and, in true Jerusalem fashion, is itself replete with thousands of years of history.

The promenade – popularly known in Hebrew as "the Tayelet" – actually comprises several walkways: the Walter and Elise Haas Promenade, the Richard and Rhoda Goldman Promenade and the Gabriel Sherover Promenade. From the heights of these landscaped walkways and parks, you can enjoy the full splendor of the city of Jerusalem spread out at your feet.

The rabbis of the Talmud claim that "ten measures of beauty descended to the world; nine were taken by Jerusalem and one by the rest of the world." An impressive boast, to be sure, especially by people who had most likely not seen much of the rest of the world – but to stand on Talpiot's Haas Promenade (Tayelet Haas) and see the Holy City spread out before you, caressed by the soft light of the Judean sunset, white stone glowing with subtle flame, would incline you to agree.

According to Jewish legend, it was from the location of today's promenade that God showed Abraham where one day his descendants would build their holy city, but the old nomad even in his wildest visions could not have foreseen the view that greets travelers today. At the center, appropriately enough, is the Old City, Dome of the Rock glinting in the sun. Beyond stretches the expanse of modern Jerusalem, a forest of white buildings and red cranes with the hills of Judea looming behind. Immediately below are several of the scattered Arab villages around the outskirts of Jerusalem, and dense groves of the Jerusalem pines that Naomi Shemer immortalized in "Jerusalem of Gold."

Amazingly, after so many years of touring Jerusalem, this year was the first time we stopped by the Promenade.

THE GREAT: The view, of course. In a city with so many activities & views. This view is A+,taking in almost the whole City with the really stunning backdrops with a nice walking area

THE BAD: Like most sights in Jerusalem, as nice as the picture is, going with a tour guide will tell you exactly what you are looking at

THE UGLY: Located in the south-eastern corner of Jerusalem, there is limited bus service to the promenade. The 'attraction' is only good for about an hour and there are no other attractions in the immediate vicinity - which means that this attraction works best if you are stopping there as part of a itinerary on a tour.

The promenade is a nice place to walk. Great view of the Old City Excellent photo site

One word of caution. This was recently the site of a terror attack done by a truck driver who deliberately drove into people. So always be aware of your surroundings

The Haas Promenade affords an unprecedented view of Jerusalem from the south. The Old City, Dome of the Rock, Mount of Olives and Mount Zion are within view. A good place to orientate yourself with the city. Though, in my opinion, the view of Jerusalem from the Mount of Olives is better, this is a good Number 2 from a different angle.

Just go. It is beautiful, panoramic, scenic and lovely. I've only been there with groups but I can imagine it could be a romantic spot for couples - especially at sunset!

This is quite easy to walk to from the First Station (Hatahana).Walk up past the church of Scotland and the khan theatre-then turn right past the Dan boutique hotel.Carry on and turn left at the Carmel monastery.Its well sign posted.
The whole of Jerusalem is spread out before you and its a great place to take first timers.Wooded and shady areas-lawns and seating areas.On a hot afternoon bring a book and just crash out and enjoy the view.
