Historic Jerusalem Train Station to Reopen as Entertainment Hotspot

 

Here's some exciting news for Israel's luxury scene: Jerusalem's historic Ottoman-era train station is scheduled to reopen as a major entertainment hotspot this April, complete with restaurants, art galleries and concert spaces. 

 

We hear the 1.7-acre complex will include seven restaurants, four ice cream and coffee stands, an expansive art gallery, a farmers' market and a 2,000-person concert venue. 

 The original building—which was enlarged and "beautified" (see below) in 1898 for the visit to Jerusalem of Germany's Kaiser Wilhelm II— has been preserved to retain the "elegant atmosphere of rail travel," we're told, including the restoration of the wooden doors, stained glass windows and carved stone.

The complex will also host outdoor movie screenings beginning this summer and feature 30 food stalls selling local organic produce and artwork.
