Self-Guided Audio Tours
For hundreds of years, the Tower of David Citadel stood at the entrance to Jerusalem. A succession of the city’s rulers lived within the citadel walls and influenced its architecture, and the fortress served as a backdrop for battles and crucial moments throughout history. In the courtyard of the Citadel and within its walls you can see archaeological finds and remains from different periods, and understand the rich story of Jerusalem.
Come explore the citadel with 2 different audio-guide tours:
A Bird's Eye View of Jerusalem - An audio tour route in the open air of the citadel that invites visitors to get to know Jerusalem and discover how the city has changed throughout history. The tour is a window into Jerusalem’s rich history and includes the breathtaking observation point as well as a tour among the archaeological finds and historical models which illustrate the developing story of the city through 3,000 years of history.
Herod's Palace and the Kishle - A tour route inviting visitors to embark on a fascinating journey into the city's past and to experience the great events and stories that shaped Jerusalem’s history. In 1999, the Israel Antiquities Authority carried out an archaeological excavation in the Kishle where they uncovered the city’s secrets from the days of the First Temple until the present time. The tour passes through remains of King Herod’s Palace, a Jewish factory from the Middle Ages and the Kishle prison and includes rare findings, stories and exciting testimonies.
