He was convinced that the windmill might help poor people in its surroundings to make a living. That worked around 20 years. Then the windmill stood still until it was reopened in 2012. Most Jerusalem tourists know the windmill as a landmark from which you can oversee large parts of the old city.

This is a safe place to walk around during the daylight hours. I would not recommend walking around after dark. If one is with a group, it will be okay.

Beautiful Windmill

I love windmills so had to visit this site. It’s a lovely windmill and well worth the climb up the hill. Even better news...the windmill has a wine on sale in a little makeshift bar at the site. Perfect reward for the climb up to the site.
