The Austrian Hospice of the Holy Family is located in the heart of the Old City of Jerusalem, directly on the Via Dolorosa. From here it is easy to reach the holy sites of the three monotheistic religions, like the Holy Sepulchre Church, the Dome of the Rock, the Western Wall or the Mount of Olives on the other side of the Kidron Valley.
Surrounded by pulsating life on the streets of the Old City, the Austrian Hospice is an oasis of peace and relaxation. Within the Old City Walls you encounter a unique atmosphere: history under the palm trees in the garden of the Hospice.
Built in the style of a palace on Vienna‘s Ringstrasse, the Hospice invites you to linger awhile. You are
invited to enjoy the tranquility of our house chapel, admire the stupendous view from our roof terrace or to relax on the garden terrace of our Viennese café.
The famed Austrian hospitality is reflected in our cooking. In addition to local Oriental specialties we also recommend our goulash soup, schnitzel, Sacher-torte and apple strudel. We use Julius Meinl products exclusively in our cafe.
