Where can you find us in Bethlehem?
Open Bethlehem’s hub in Bethlehem is located inside the headquarters of Visit Palestine where you can find friendly staff that would guide you through any information you need to make your visit so much more exciting. The office is just around the corner from Manger Square inside a spectacular limestone building that is worth visiting if only to experience Bethlehem’s traditional architecture. You can reach
the place from the historic Star street but it is best to approach it from New road just opposite the main coach station.
About our new tours
Together with Visit Palestine we are proud to present the “Open Bethlehem Tour”.
Our tour takes you off the beaten track as you explore Bethlehem from multiple dimensions.
The tour includes walking tours inside Bethlehem’s old historic quarters including UNESCO protected Star Street and Church of Nativity. You will also experience Palestine’s outdoor landscapes as you hike in Battir and then enjoy a traditional meal at the community center. Other attractions include the Mar Saba Monastery, the Solomon’s Pools and the Village of Artas. The tour will also introduce you to the political and socioeconomic situation in Bethlehem. From stops along the Separation Wall to visits and meeting with locals at one of the refugee Camps, the tour will help you better understand the multilayered life of Palestinian in general and Bethlehemites in particular.
When will the tours be running?
We will running the two day “Open Bethlehem Tour” on the following dates: 12 & 13 November, 26 & 27 November, 10 & 11 December and 22 & 23 December 2016.
We will also be announcing several longer trips to Palestine (7 nights and 8 days) in the coming weeks.
Whether you are interested to explore the wall, visit historical and Holy places, meet Bethlehem institutions or see neighbouring towns, our tours have something to offer everyone. We are also flexible and will be happy to offer assistance if you just need a little help to go your own way.
