New Tour – The Great Bridge Route!

New Tour in the Western Wall Tunnels

Attention!

New Tour – The Great Bridge Route!

New Tour in the Western Wall Tunnels – The Great Bridge Route is open to the public!

After years of development work and archaeological preservation, we are happy to launch a new tour route in the Western Wall Tunnels: The Great Bridge route.

The Western Wall Tunnels will now include two fascinating tours –

The Great Stone tour (the classic route) that includes a tour along the length of the Western Wall, a visit to the site closest to the Holy of Holies, and a visit to the Western Wall’s huge stone.

The new route – The Great Bridge tour – will take visitors one more level underground where you will see the Great Bridge that led to the Second Temple.  This route will showcase different rooms and halls that served the people of that time, new and exciting findings, and a first glimpse at a new exposure of the Western Wall.

This is a unique and fascinating route underground below the tremendous bridge that led to the Temple during the Second Temple period. The route passes exciting sites and findings from the Second Temple period and includes a look at a new exposure of the Western Wall.

New Tour – The Great Bridge Route!

What’s the difference between the regular Tunnels tour and the new one?

The new route takes you on a tour into a lower, deeper layer underground with new places and discoveries that aren’t included in the classic tour.

Do we reach the Western Wall on the new route?

Of course.  The peak of the visit is the encounter with the Western Wall stones underground that were exposed after 1,600 years of being covered by many layers of earth and debris.

Is the site wheelchair accessible?

Unfortunately, the new route is not wheelchair accessible.

How long is the tour?

The tour is about 60 minutes long.

How do you get to the new route?

The entrance to the new route is through the lobby of the Western Wall Tunnels sites, to the left of the prayer plaza.
