  • The lion's Gate is the eastern entrance to the old city of Jerusalem and directs in the Muslim quarter of the city and at the same time the starting point for the Via Dolorosa, the mother of all routes of the procession. Here, the procession of to the Holy Sepulchre Franciscan start daily at 15:00 (16:00 summer) (for an authentic "feel" even crosses can be borrowed to carry). Outside the gate, there are some comfortable seating to relax and draw away to the Mount of olives for the strenuous via Dolorosa or the force. We had an unpleasant (but dangerous) meeting here with a group of pöbelnder Arab youth. Nevertheless, it is advisable to avoid the area after nightfall.
