German Colony

The German Colony (Moshava Germanit) was one of several settlements known as "German Colonies" built in Israel by members of the Christian Templar Society in the second half of the 19th century. The Templars were primarily farmers, hence the name Moshava, an agricultural collective settlement. The neighborhood was built in the form of a typical German village of the period, with narrow streets, stone fences, thatched rooftops of pine and cypress wood, and a lot of greenery ; however, unlike a typical German village, the houses of the German Colony of Jerusalem were built of the local stone (and not wood and bricks). The area's homes have special features, such as fields of trees and green gardens. In 1975 the Colony was declared a historical site in order to preserve its unique flavor. The German Colony is located in southern Jerusalem and expands from both sides of Emek Refaim Street. Today Emek Refaim is one of the most popular streets in Jerusalem, with a cosmopolitan flavor, stylish boutiques, restaurants and coffee houses bustling with life. The area is next to great cultural spots like the Jerusalem Theater, the Islamic Museum and the Natural Science Museum. It is also just a few minutes walk to the Old City. In the German Colony are two high schools, an elementary school, a variety of preschools, medical centers, community centers and various synagogues of various denominations, due to the many immigrants in the area from France and the United States.
