Jerusalem for Tourists

Jerusalem is one of the strongest tourist brands in the world. It offers a combination of history, going back thousands of years, cultural institutions, tourist sites and cultural event - international tourism. Lately there has been a significant growth in the number tourists coming to Israel in general and to Jerusalem in particular. 2010 was a record breaking year for tourism in Israel; about 3.5 million tourists visited Israel and about 2.7 million of them visited Jerusalem.

The Jerusalem Development Authority operates in the framework of a strategic, multi-year plan for the development of tourism as an impetus for growth in the city centers of Jerusalem. It aims to maximize the economic potential of tourism and to create new employment opportunities; the plan includes the developing of cultural and tourism "products", infrastructures and marketing tourism in the city.


In the context of its operations for the development of tourism the Jerusalem Development Authority offers incentives and grants to entrepreneurs and companies in two major fields:
Hotels - a grant in the amount of 28% for establishing or enlarging hotels in the city;
Conventions - grants from the Authority to promote and encourage international conventions in Jerusalem. Also the Authority initiates and promotes cultural events to attract tourists such as the Jerusalem Opera Festival, the Jerusalem Convention for International Tourism, Hamshoushalayim (Long weekend in Jerusalem), Summer in Jerusalem, etc.
