The Kaiser comes to Jerusalem

A fabulous new exhibit at the Tower of David Museum in Jerusalem!

Kaiser Wilhelm II, Emperor of Germany and King of Prussia, visited the Holy Land in 1898. Feverishly elaborate preparations were undertaken prior to his arrival that would forever change the face of Jerusalem’s Jaffa Gate. And the visit itself – thrilling, dramatic, and covered by every reputable journalistic rag in the world – was a wonder to behold.

Superbly interactive, technologically advanced, and extraordinarily visual, the new exhibit is an experience both educational and fun! My favorite part: sharp, quick, “modern” newspaper reports with moving pictures. On- and also  historic photos of  Jerusalem in wonderful detail.

Added bonus: You can take your picture with the Kaiser in his tent. Bring Theodor Herzl along if you like, and set a crown upon your head. Then send the photo to Facebook or email it to your family and friends.

The exhibition is open during regular opening hours:

Sunday – Thursday 10:00 – 16:00
Saturday 10:00 – 14:00
The Museum is closed on Fridays.

Hello Aviva and Shmuel,
The trip was wonderful. It was everything that we could have wanted. We saw so much of what we did not see on our first trip. This was definitely the way to see the country. I am sure that it helped that we had a full 2 weeks to do it. We saw art, culture, history, archeology, religion etc., etc. This was certainly a different experience than the mega bus tour we were on 21 years ago!
