This impressive stone windmill is the highlight of one of the nicest walks one can take in the modern city of Jerusalem -- starting from the upscale Yemin Moshe residential quarter (of which the windmill is the centerpiece), continuing along the beautifully manicured Bloomfield Garden and the Lion Fountain, and culminating in the historic German Colony neighborhood. Opposite the Bloomfield Garden is the Liberty Bell Park, with its replica of the famous Philadelphia landmark.

Interesting history to the windmill. Great view of the Old City. The website indicated that they were open that particular day until 2 pm. But we found nothing inside or that required access that could be closed off.

The Montefiore windmill built in 1857 was originally designed as a flour mill, it is now a small museum to honor Montefiore.

The windmill itself isn't that spectacular. The lookout and the area around is worth a visit. Go there and check out the story of the new city.
