Jerusalem is famous for its history, culture and as the birthplace of religions. The city can also be a romantic and meaningful place for couples to visit together. Here are some of the top attractions in Jerusalem for a date night or couples outing:
The Western Wall at Night is one of the top attractions in Jerusalem
The Western Wall, one of the city’s most significant religious sites, is also a transformative place to visit in the evening, making it one of the top attractions in Jerusalem for a date night, or as part of a date night.
The plaza is often quieter and less crowded at night. And the lights illuminating the wall create a special atmosphere. Whether seeking to participate in the ma’ariv evening prayers, engage in quiet reflection, or spend time relaxing or talking in the plaza, the Western Wall is worthy of an evening visit.
At Visit to Yemin Moshe
This neighborhood of stone houses, narrow stairways and gardens outside of the city walls in a favorite place for couples in Jerusalem. The views of the Old City and quiet nature of Yemin Moshe make it one of the top attractions in Jerusalem for couples to stroll through during the day or night. In fact, this is one of the most popular places in the city for engagements.
In addition to the views and interesting architecture, the neighborhood’s small square, home to a windmill and small cafe, is a big attraction. The windmill, whose blades sometimes still spin, creating special batches of flour from grain, adds to the special atmosphere. For those looking to enjoy a drink, The Jerusalem Winery has a tasting room and visitors’ center on the ground floor of the windmill. Yemen Moshe, and its windmill, is just a short walk from the Inbal Hotel.
A Sign of Love at the Israel Museum is of the top attractions in Jerusalem
The Israel Museum, which houses a collection of art, archaeology, and history, including the Dead Sea Scrolls, is a must-see for many who come to Jerusalem. It is also a great place for couples. In addition to wandering through the museum and its outside gardens, another fun activity is taking photos with an outdoor sculpture that spells out “Ahava,” or “Love” in Hebrew.
The steel sculpture was made in 1977 by the American artist Robert Indiana, and is one of the museum’s most photographed pieces. This sculpture is just one of dozens that dot the museum’s garden.
The museum also has special evening hours each Tuesday, making this one of the top attractions in Jerusalem to visit at night.
