A tour of the German Templar Colony in Jerusalem.
During the tour, we will cover the houses and the stories of its founders.
Why did they come to Israel, and more specifically to Jerusalem? How did they change from farmers to commercial and industrial workers? The first stop of the tour starts at the "HaTahana" (first station) compound, from there, in 1892 when the first train in the Middle East arrived in Jerusalem, an era that will change the history of the city, and the German Colony.
The Khan was built next to the first station, which did not bother to change the bedding every day, and the guests that made sure to prepare food for themselves. From there we continue to the German Colony and hear about the "German Cultural Hall," which refused to build a church.
Inside the pastoral streets, you hear the stories of the people behind the houses, the first swimming pool in Jerusalem, the beer gardens, and the house on the horse dung street.
