“Beautiful Walk, Astounding History”
Reviewed October 23, 2012

This area is really so beautiful, with lovely gardens and views. However, what really makes it special is that it was the first Jewish neighborhood built outside the walls of the Old City of Jerusalem. It's hard to realize that the Old City was actually walled and that this area was seen as "outside" the city - a concept that sounds pretty foreign nowadays. So amongst all the beauty, there is also an amazing history. Definitely check it out!

“A delightfull romantic walk”
Reviewed August 19, 2012

This neighbourhood is a great place for an easy stroll in the evening, with the dim street lights providing a romantic atmosphere and the old city ramparts visible just beyond the valley. You can end this stroll in the nearby city center or Emeq Refaim street for a good dinner. And don't miss the windmill at the edge of the neighbourhood!

“A special place”
Reviewed March 4, 2012

A nice neighborhood, just to walk around at day time or at the evening. when you can also see the lights of the old city in front of you, together with the walls of the city.

“Beautiful Neighbehood”
Reviewed February 14, 2012

Mishkenot Sha'ananim was the first neighberhood built outside the old city of Jerusalem and was renovated about 40 years ago. Today, many artists live in the neighberhood, and is is full of galleries. The neighberhood is built on the side of the mountain, and has a breathtaking panoramic view of the old city. Mishkenot Sha'ananim is well maintained and beautifull, and one can surely enjoy 2-3 hours visiting it.
