About
We regret to inform you that the Visit Palestine Center is temporarily closing. We will be back soon. The Visit Palestine Center is located in a beautifully restored 200 year old building in the Old City of Bethlehem, just a few minutes walk from Manger Street and the Church of Nativity. Our Tourist Information Point is fully equipped to help plan and organize your trip to Palestine. We also offer a unique shopping experience in our Boutique Gift Shop which carries products that are exclusively made in Palestine. The latest addition to the center is our Cafe and outdoor terrace restaurant offering a wide selection of hot and cold drinks, light meals and salads. The center regularly holds different events such as movie screenings, book launches, food tastings and more.

I made arrangements with Sami Khoury the VP owner to stay at the Bethlehem hotel for 5 nights which was very nice. However Mr. Khoury's driver never met us at Ben Gurion airport on December 23rd as he promised me months before via email. Tried to call him no answer. We found an Israeli taxi driver to drive us to the checkpoint entrance to Bethlehem and we walked into town. The next day we walked to visit Palestine office but it was closed (For Christmas)? We tried again over the next few days but no one answered telephone or doorbell. We later found an excellent independent tour guide Mohaned in Manger Square Christmas Eve. My advise is to have a good back up plan as Visit Palestine Center is not reliable.

A very nice place to visit
Feb 2019 • Solo
This is a lovely place to visit. They have a beautiful little restaurant with a patio covered with creeper plants and flowers. They offer very nice salads and sandwiches. The little shop is beautiful and has very nice products. However prices are quite expensive. Nevertheless it is a great experience. Oh, they are also excellent in providing information on things to do in and around Bethlehem. They even offer tours which are highly recommended. I have not done that yet. A must place to visit

Be sure to spend some extra time in Bethlehem
Jan 2019 • Couples
Don't only visit the Church of the Nativity. It was fun to wander the streets and alleys with nice shops with nice handicrafts--pretty white limestone and clean. The visitor center had free clean bathrooms. Be sure to see the "Banksy" wall in Bethlehem--the grafitti art here is powerful and creative. For many in the group it was among their favorite experiences in Palestine. Be sure to see the "Walled Off" Hotel.

German women meet Palästine women
Oct 2018 • Friends
Our group of 12 Women enjoyed a very interessting trip and were very glad to finally have found a female guide to lead us hiking through parts of the West Bank. Noor Sameer Mahmoud is a very attentive, helpful, devoted guide. She explained many details (historical and actual) to what we saw and opened up conversations with local women. We appreciated and highly recommend her, not only but especially if someone is interessted in Palästine women in the past and today.
Das Palestine Center is a very good place to get informed or have a rest!

Our first time in Bethlehem and the first stop was the information point.
Here we met Noor Sameer Mahmoud who was able to find us a room in the city center for a good price giving us advices on food and places to see.
She's been helpful, kind and prepared, always willing to help.
Every information point should hire people like Noor!
100% recommended

Noor made a lot happen in one day! She is knowledgeable, well-organized and an effective and generous leader. We felt not only connected to the sites and history but also to the culture and people of the places we visited. Thanks for making our tour such a rich experience, Noor.
