  • Wonderful array of artefacts all well arranged. The people there are keen to talk about their culture and the efforts to preserve it. Don't miss the Banksy Dove on the wall outside.  more »
  • We went with our tour and at first sight thought it would be a "tourist trap", but the truth is that the only owner wants to share the culture of his country, Palestine.

Visit if you have questions and want to talk to someone from Palestine to his educated opinion.

Where to stay in Bethlehem

The main tourist traffic in Bethlehem consists of tour groups arriving from Jerusalem, getting a hectic tour of the town, and leaving. But Bethlehem's tangled streets house a number of accommodations worth checking out if you want to extend your stay beyond a brief look around. Located here, there, and everywhere, the hotels in town blend in with the rest of the buildings, so you should certainly plan ahead to make sure you know exactly where yours is. A couple of luxury choices have ornamental interiors, fine-dining restaurants, and pools, while standard hotels and guesthouses abound, along with a few backpacker hostels.
