Construction and Refurbishment
We are currently building a three-storey building in the northeastern section of our garden area. From 2019 onwards „Casa Austria“ will offer you modern comforts and cosiness in the heart of the vibrant Old City of Jerusalem. At the same time, we are already working on the niceties of a comprehensive refurbishment of the traditional old building, which first opened its doors in March 1863 and in November 1869 was honoured to host our founding father, Emperor Franz Joseph.
In the footsteps of the Holy Scriptures, thousands of pilgrims and travelers from all parts of the former Monarchy, as well as from Europe and the rest of the world, took up residence here. They returned home content, replete with positive stories about this wonderful Austrian heritage in the Orient.
About that we are really happy. For that we are sometimes sorely envied. With that in mind we are working on a new chapter in our house history.
