Ammunition Hill

Info

Givat Hatachmoshet “Ammunition Hill”  is a historic site in Israeli history because of the battles that took place there during the War of Independence and the 6 Day War. The hill is more than just a memorial to the soldiers that fell there. The hill tells stories of bravery, heritage & leadership and today hosts many fun activities that bring out the hero in “you”.

There is a 360 degree view of Jerusalem from the top of the hill and that is why it was such an important location to conquer. Today the hilltop is open as a museum with bunkers, old tanks, 3D model of Jerusalem on the eve of the 6 Day War (small fee), and an indoor museum with a short movie (22 minutes). The tour and the movie can be arranged in English if it is booked in advance.
