No glass, metal bars, big ports, even SLR fits. View is clean 360, not obstructed. Second highest tower in the Old City and nearest area, only one other is above horizon.

One of the few Lutheran Protestant evangelic churches in Jerusalem. Was inaugurated in 1898 by kaiser Wilhelm the 2 and his wife Augusta Victoria .in the Christian quarter, just by the church of the holy sepulcher . Nice view from the tower.

The Church of the Redeemer is an austere church that is relatively modern and sleek. I thought it was one of the more beautiful sites as it was so serene and uncluttered. The only colorful decorations were the intricate geometric stained glass windows. I particularly...More

Located near the Church of the Holy Sepulchre minding its own business is this gem. The modest admission fee gets you access to the Tower and an Underground excavation site. The trek up the Tower is tricky, but once at the top, there are 360...More
