    Jerusalems Altstadt

    February 25 in Palestine ⋅ ☀️ 21 °C

    Die gesamte Altstadt Jerusalem's ist geprägt von den verschiedenen religiösen Bauwerken und allein deshalb schon eine Besichtigung wert. Lange suchen mussten wir dann etwas außerhalb auf dem Zion-Berg nach dem christlichen Friedhof, in dem Oskar Schindler beerdigt wurde. Kontrastprogramm gab es dann anschließend im Zentrum und auf der "Einkaufs-Meile".Read more

    Ölberg

    February 25 in Palestine ⋅ ☀️ 20 °C

    Unzählige Stufen führten uns dann auf den vom Tempelberg gegenüber liegenden Ölberg. Oben erwartete uns neben der schönen Aussicht auf den Felsendom auch massenhaft Touristen die mittlerweile mit dutzenden Bussen hier hoch gebracht wurden. Relativ schnell ergriffen wir die Flucht und nahmen den Weg über den jüdischen Friedhof und vorbei an den Gräbern der Propheten, nach unten.Read more

    Tempelberg

    February 25 in Palestine ⋅ ☀️ 7 °C

    Im Reiseführer hatten wir gelesen, dass sich am Tor zum Tempelberg durch intensive Polizei-Kontrollen, teilweise unangenehm lange Schlangen bilden können, deshalb machten wir uns zur gewohnten Uhrzeit früh am Morgen auf den Weg. Um kurz nach 7 Uhr waren dann auch die Straßen noch angenehm leer. Zu Fuß gelangten wir ziemlich schnell an die Klagemauer und von dort aus durch die "Polizei-Schleuse" (mit 0,0 Wartezeit) auf den Tempelberg und waren somit quasi über die Grenze nach Palästina eingereist. Der Felsendom mit seiner goldenen Kuppel zeigte sich in der Morgensonne in all seiner Pracht. Noch waren hier wenig Touristen unterwegs, was sich vermutlich bald ändern würde.Read more

    Grabeskirche

    February 26 in Palestine ⋅ ⛅ 12 °C

    Am Ort der Grabeskirche soll nach offiziellen Angaben, die Kreuzigung und Bestattung Jesu stattgefunden haben. Dementsprechend drängen sich hier selbst zu früher Morgenstunde schon Recht viel Menschen. Das Anstehen in der Schlange zur Grabkammer wurde dann selbst Tina irgendwann zu lang, sodass wir diesen heiligen, aber keineswegs erführchtigen und schon gar nicht ruhigen Ort schnell wieder verließen.Read more

    Jerusalem - Hezekiah's Tunnel

    April 15 in Palestine ⋅ ⛅ 16 °C

    The Gihon Spring is an important water source for Jerusalem. In Hezekiah's time a tunnel was dug to ensure Jerusalem's water supply during the seize.
    You go down a tunnel to the Gihon Spring which spurts water out at quite a force. The water in the tunnel was knee deep and it's completely dark. The tunnel is about 800m and took about 1/2 hour to go through. The tunnel ends at the Pool of Siliom - which is no where near as big today as it was in Jesus time.
    Amazing place and amazing experience!

    Mt. Gerizim (Samaria)

    April 16 in Palestine ⋅ 🌫 16 °C

    High up in the hills of Samaria are Mt Gerizim and Mt Ebal. The city of Shechem is in the valley between the mountains. The 12 tribes assembled here before entering the promised land. Gerezim means "blessing" and Ebal means "cursings" and the Israelites were warned what would be their fate according to their behaviour.
    The township is comprised of Samaritans - there is only a few thousand left in the world.

    Jerusalem - Garden of Gethsemane

    April 15 in Palestine ⋅ ☁️ 18 °C

    The Garden of Gethsemane is a lovely garden where Jesus liked to go to to pray and where he was praying before he was arrested. There is a church there called "Church of all Nations" as many nations donated money to build it in the 1920's.

    Jericho

    April 16 in Palestine ⋅ ☀️ 22 °C

    Jericho is west of Jerusalem near the start of Dead Sea, about 305m below sea level. The town in below sea level. It is in a quite barren looking area but still produces good quantity of crops.
    There is a Tel (ruin) of the old city that Joshua was commanded to destroy when they first entered the Promised Land.Read more

    Israel - Hebron (Cave of Macpelah)

    April 17 in Palestine ⋅ ⛅ 11 °C

    Hebron is in a Palestinian controlled area. The entire Jewish community either fled or were killed in the war . There is now a small Jewish settlement again.
    We visited the Cave of Macpelah where Abraham bought the land for a burying place for Sarah. Later he, Rebekah and Isaac were also buried.
    Big Israeli protection presence.

    Dead Sea

    April 20 in Palestine ⋅ ⛅ 21 °C

    436m below sea level.
    Tamarisk and date trees tolerate the salt.
    Donkeys are used to keep ground clear in the orchards.
    Pot Ash extracted from the Dead Sea is the main export of Israel. They also extract Magnesium and Bromide from the water. The water feels oily, which is the magnesium.
    Sinkholes develop when water recedes which make it dangerous to walk on due to sudden collapse.
    The sea is really deep, the lighter aqua colour water are manmade and filled from a channel dug from main sea.
    Very unusual place! Went for a bob in the sea - not quite our usual swim at the beach, but it's supposed to have great medicinal benefits!
