Tourist Tip #94 Jerusalem's Austrian Hospice

Although it sounds morbid, the Austrian Hospice on the Via Dolorosa is actually a hostel where you can escape the stresses of Jerusalem's Old City.

The Old City of Jerusalem is vibrant and endlessly fascinating, but it is also a raucous cultural challenge. When you need a break from assertive vendors and Middle Eastern mayhem, the Austrian Hospice offers a serene island above it all.
