Individuals – Families

Welcome to Bethany Beyond the Jordan and the Lutheran church.
To be able to make your visit as good as possible you need to book your visit beforehand.
The church is open whenever we are home, but to ensure we are at home when you arrive, contact us.

For individuals who want to visit us, we can arrange special walks. For an overnight stay at site, we recommend the Russian Guesthouse.

During the walking pilgrimage you will enter the biblical stories and witness the present day political situation of the area. You will be offered time and space for reflection and prayers.

A typical tour is about three hours (about 2 miles, 3 km) and includes:

  • The archeological remnants of the Baptismal site of Jesus
  • The Jordan River
  • Visit the Lutheran Church and have coffee or tea in the community hall

Baptism in the Jordan River. If you already are baptized you can reaffirm your baptism in the Jordan River.
This can also be done in a baptismal font beside the Jordan River or in the Lutheran church.

We do not charge a fee, but voluntary donations toward the work of the church are welcome.

All visitors need to pay the entrance fee to the ticket office to be able to enter the park.
This might be included if you have the Jordan pass.
