Here are some of our top recommendations:
Jerusalem’s Citadel / “Tower of David”
Celebrate with your loved ones at an historical and archaeological asset of international significance. The Citadel is a medieval fortress with architectural additions from later periods. It is located near the Jaffa Gate, the historical entrance to the city and the point where the East meets the West. It bears cultural and architectural values and has been the symbol of the city of Jerusalem for generations.
Create your dream celebration, at a standard far beyond your expectations. At Olmaya, the completely transparent glass structure, surrounding manicured gardens of the Haas Promenade, breathtaking Biblical views, and easy accessibility, impeccable finishing and cutting edge amenities make Olmaya Jerusalem’s most attractive venue today.
A brief glimpse of life at biblical times, where you will experience Abraham style legendary hospitality, a rich biblical meal and a fully equipped dance floor for an amazing party and celebration.
Roof Top Mamilla
High above the city, the Rooftop Outdoor Lounge & Restaurant embraces the fresh Jerusalem breeze, while offering a magnificent view of the Old City. Mamilla Hotel offers everything needed for the event of your dreams with its distinctive contemporary décor and the original menus created by leading Israeli chefs. The Roof Top at the Mamilla Hotel is the perfect venue to add joy, elegance and character to a memorable celebration.
Mercaz Shimshon: The Blaustein Hall - Beit Shmuel

Celebrate here, where your family and guests will have an experience that combine an authentic and exciting Jerusalem experience with a complete culinary pleasure.
Fun is a serious issue at IGT. We search out adventures which bring smiles and make for good stories. Check out some ideas here:
Is it a plane? Is it a bird? Is it Superman? No, it is Paragliding!
Did you always dream to fly? IGT will make it come true with paragliding – the closest you can get to feeling like a flying bird. The experience is simple and most convenient and a great opportunity to feel and explore Israel from above.
Israel's geographic location makes it an excellent place for paragliding. Available all seasons at many locations overlooking the beautiful and enchanting landscapes of the country.
Want to make art and save the planet at the same time? This family-friendly and educational workshop combines unusual materials from factories throughout the country, inspiring families to create something new from castaway substances. The workshop culminates in the group creating an original sculpture, a beautiful ecological, cultural, and social statement.
Want to explore the country? See new sites? Pull out your own road map? Discover hidden secrets? Let IGT take you on a treasure hunt through old buildings, bustling squares, and exotic markets. As you and your team follow the clues, the country’s history and archeology come alive in a personal and interactive way.
