Jerusalem is a vibrant metropolis with virtually endless options for culture and entertainment. Everything from cultural museums to movies, shopping and dining at the state-of-the-art Cinema City and Yes Planet multiplexes to concerts and festivals at quaint cultural centres like the First Station, Jerusalem Theatre and Khan Theatre.
In addition to Jerusalem's many museums and holy landmarks, check out some of the city's more unusual cultural attractions. the Machane Yehuda Market is a traditional Middle Eastern-style shuk, a fascinating array of sounds, sights, and smells. At the Jerusalem Biblical Zoo, 170 diverse species of animals can be seen—most of these were mentioned in the Bible. And the Ramparts Walk is one of the most rewarding activities in terms of history, beauty and a greater sense of the Old City as a whole.
In Jerusalem, they say that you come for the hummus, but stay for the incredibly diverse dining scene. Master chefs serve up signature dishes to please every palate—from traditional Middle Eastern and North African to South American, Asian fusion, and continental European cuisine. From street food to fine dining, Jerusalem's got it all.
Jerusalem's nightlife scene is incredibly diverse, unique and active, so there's a little something for everybody—everything from cocktail bars, dance clubs, dive bars, live music venues, backgammon haunts and more. Whatever your pleasure—from karaoke bars to dance clubs—pub crawls to wine tastings—there's a party every night.
