Overview
More
In the heart of Jerusalem, the First Station is a major center of entertainment, culture and culinary delights. The complex is accessible and open to the general public - both local Jerusalemites and tourists, and is a lively focus of activities, with something to offer for a variety of wishes and needs, on the go almost all hours of the day, every day of the week. The Station's location in the city's downtown tourist and culture area makes it a bridge between neighborhoods and communities, and the first station for any visit or night out in the heart of Jerusalem.

After going to a film in the Cinematheque we decided to get some ice cream. The First Station is conveniently located for such an outing and offers fine Italian gelato.

Refurnished old train station. When I was there on Purim it was full of temporary vendors, music, families. People that were there in another day said my visit had a lot more to do than normal. Several restaurants and quaint shops.More
