right next to the knesset there is a nice little park and educational center about the wildlife in jerusalem - the city and the region/ you will be amazed from the israeli nature which is also biblical one. call them forst and check if they have english apeaking instructors.

I sat in the bird blind only. it's a great place to see species I'd never seen before. My ornithological knowledge extends only to "look at that pretty blue bird." Has educational exhibits and is a great place to bring restless 4-7 year olds.

Tip: this is at the very end of Rothscild street, right where it deadends into a parking lot.

I live very close to this beautiful sanctuary and come here on morning runs and when I need to "get away from it all". I watch the birds from the bird "hide" and in the early mornings will see them ringing the birds that come to migrate in the appropriate seasons. You can arrange for English tours but most of the volunteers speak English and will gladly share their information with you. I also bring my tour guide clients here on a "Secret Gems of Jerusalem" tour and they love this place.

This is one of those places that most Jerusalemites don't even know about, let alone other people. When you walk or drive on Rothschid street between Sacher park and the Supreme court towards the Knesset, Go right up to the Security barrier of the Knesset and follow the little path to your left. After about 20 meters turn left again and you are there. To your left you will see the learning center, shop, and Art Gallery. To your right are the officec and research center. Straight ahead of you, you will see the observatory. Take a seat on one of the benches and prepare for a wonderful experience. Here you can see almost all the birds of Israel, depending on the season. This is also a great place for meditation. Please remain in absolute silence and refrain from smoking. Try to bring some seeds or fruit to place on the ledge in front of you and in a few minutes the different species will come right up to you to feed. The observatory is built in a way that makes you vitually invisible to the birds. Other Israeli Fauna and Flora can also be seen from where you are sitting. A wonderful place for a rest from the Hustle and Bustle of the city.
