“Kind of cool”
Reviewed July 31, 2013

If you are Christian, this place has great meaning. Because of the historical significance, the Garden is extremely important. You also get a great view of the Old City.

“Beautiful”
Reviewed July 31, 2013

This garden is beautiful and it's easy to imagine back to the time of Christ what this might have been like. Is it possible the olive trees are really 2000 years old here, as we were told?

“Nice garden with a nice Church”
Reviewed July 30, 2013

This garden is small but nice. What's great is the Church next to it (Church of all Nations) which is worth a visit not for the alledged rock where Jesus stood but for the architecture and decoration of this very beautiful Church. The windows glasswork is very humble and fits the mood perfectly.

“Family trip!”

We made a family trip to Jerusalem and of course the so called "Bible tour.
The old olive trees are pretty impressing.

“Garden of Gethsemane”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

The trees and shrubs are beautiful. There is an olive tree that is 1400 (?) years old. Next to the Garden is a beautiful Catholic Church with a fantastic mural on the outside. Worth the visit.
