160 years may not seem very long to people interested in cultural history, but the history of this house is in fact both enthralling and dramatic. That is largely attributed to the fact that the Hospice is not located just anywhere, but in one of the most diverse cities in the world - Jerusalem. From a religious point of view, the Hospice, as a Christian institution, occupies a special position in the Muslim quarter surrounded by holy places of three monotheistic religions […] We [The Austrian Hospice] offer a slice of Austrian tradition with a touch of Imperial flair - in the midst of the hustle bustle of the Oriental world, from which many of our guests seek occasional but welcome respite.
