The common thought is that a cloud of stillness hangs over Jerusalem from Friday night until Saturday night but if you dig deep you’ll see pockets of the city remain vibrant.
Here are 8 ways to ‘Live it Up’ on Saturday in Jerusalem:
Wake up and grab brunch. You know you want too! These cafes are surely open and waiting for you to arrive with sunglasses on and bedhead. Here are a few suggestions:
Burn off your brunch by taking a stroll in these fabulous parks and ancient paths:
The Ramparts Walk and get a high perspective of the ancient walls.
Jerusalem Botanical Gardens
Take the opportunity to learn the secret of your new home from a local. The Jerusalem municipality offers great free walking tours of numerous Jerusalem neighborhoods.
Drink at the Link. Visit the bar that’s in a 100-year-old building with an extensive beer and wine list. You’ll be able to enjoy a green landscape and great company.
If you prefer the hipster route then boogie down to old records at HaTaklit. The vibe is good and the drinks and better. It’s also uber affordable.
Visit the Ein Karem neighborhood and grab treats from Sweet N’Karem chocolate shop. There are also artisan workshops and historic churches nearby!
Grab your friends and see what Noah’s Ark was really about. Take a day trip to the Biblical Zoo.
