Ramparts Walk information
The Ramparts Walk is a 1km jaunt along the top of the city wall – from Jaffa Gate north to Lion’s Gate, via New, Damascus and Herod’s Gates; and Jaffa Gate south to Dung Gate, via Zion Gate. It isn’t possible to do a complete circuit of the wall because the Haram ash-Sharif/Temple Mount stretch is closed for security reasons. To begin the walk, head up the stairs just inside Jaffa Gate. Tickets are sold at both Jaffa Gate and Damascus Gate. Note that the north side of the wall is closed on Fridays because of Muslim prayers. The south side is open seven days a week.
