We took one of the free guided tours through the Knesset which was quite extensive which a nice and outspoken guided. Very much to learn even for political experts. It’s very valuable how democracy operates. And of course the Chagall tapestries are a must-see.

Every person who travels to Jerusalem should visit the Knesset. It is not that it is particularly beautiful, but its architecture is interesting. I like the Menorah best. It perfectly embodies my Israel. There are a lot of governmental buildings, ministries, etc. near the Knesset.

The simplicity of the architecture, its Chagall tapestries and mosaics, the streamlined nature of the parliamentary chamber and the minimalist feel of the interiors - it all adds up to give a snapshot of a country with a focus on both the past and the...More

I do not know. It is best to check with the security first since even regularly schedule times can be changed
