Israel

"SHALOM" mit ToVA WaLD Boutique Travel & Events


Mit unserem Traveller Made® Partner "Tova Wald Boutique Travel & Events" zeigen wir Ihnen das heilige Land.

Wir empfehlen Ihnen eine Reise nach Israel nicht nur wegen der Kultur und der Historie, sondern auch wegen den vielen kleinen und großen Naturwundern.

Zum einen die pulsierende Metropole Tel Aviv direkt am Mittelmeer, zum anderen Jerusalem, die Wiege des Juden- und Christentums. Erleben Sie Jerusalem mit all seiner Geschichte bei einem Blick vom Ölberg auf den Felsendom, beim Gang über die Via Dolorosa, dem Leidensweg Jesu sowie beim Besuch der Klagemauer oder der Grabeskirche. Am See Genezareth sehen Sie weitere biblische Stätten wie die weiße Synagoge, Kapernaum oder den Berg der Seligpreisung. Ein Bad im Toten Meer mit dem unvergleichlichen Gefühl der Schwerelosigkeit darf natürlich nicht fehlen. In Tel Aviv genießen Sie Großstadtflair und kulinarische Highlights.


Kosmopolitisch und traditionell, jung und hip, Schmelztiegel der Kulturen und Sehnsuchtsort dreier Weltreligionen - das alles ist Israel.

DAY ONE


 

  • Arrival at Ben Gurion airport & VIP Service
  • Travel to Jerusalem, check-in  

Jerusalem, with a dramatic history dating back thousands of years, is a city that never ceases to change, evolve and amaze.  It presents a different face for every era, a new countenance with every season.  Indisputably one of the most beautiful and magical cities in the world, it is made only more entrancing by its ancient history and its many flavors and colors.

A visit to Jerusalem is a journey back in time, where every corner tells an ancient tale and almost every building records a landmark and historic event.  Yet simultaneously, a visitor will encounter the bustle and activity of a vibrant modern city juxtaposed on the ruins of ancient civilizations.

 

Jerusalem’s Old City is surrounded by an impressive wall and contains four distinct quarters; the Jewish, Muslim, Christian and Armenian quarters.  Here you will find the principal holy sites such as the Western Wall and Temple Mount, which are sacred to Jews; the Church of the Holy Sepulcher,

Via Dolorosa and other important pilgrimage destinations sacred to Christians; and the Dome of the Rock and Al-Aqsa Mosque, both important holy sites for Muslims.

  • Special spiritual night tour of Jerusalem, which will open your heart to understand this magical city. 

Jerusalem by night is more private, intimate and magical, unlike during the day, when it is very busy and hot. The walk will start in Mt. Zion, King David's tomb, enter the old city walls through Zion gate, continue through the Jewish Quarter to the  Kotel – The Western wall.

The journey towards the Dead Sea takes visitors through the most intriguing and mysterious scenery. The busy, noisy urban environment is soon replaced by untamed desert panoramas, rocky hills and the characteristic brownish yellow of this spacious desert territory leading straight to the unbelievable blue of the Dead Sea, the lowest place on earth at 400 meters below sea level.

  • Continue to Masada, ascend the mountain by cable car and visit the site

Masada: A rugged natural fortress of majestic beauty, in the Judean Desert overlooking the Dead Sea.
