It was fun to walk around and enjoy the German colony. Lots of restaurants to choose from and great view of the Boha'i terraces from here.

we had a guided tour of the German colony with a PhD guide who knew the fascinating history of the Templars. That's what made the buildings especially interesting.

We have come to the German Colony with European friends to find a lovely holiday spirit, enchanted with holiday lights and decoration - what a wonderful place to visit during the holiday season on December
