Many tourists are looking for getting from Jerusalem to Hebron every year.
Nevertheless, sometimes it may sound like an intimidating task for some people.
This is true especially for those who have never visited the Holy Land before.
So why do tourists in the Holy Land looking for a visit to Hebron?
Well, this ancient city, in the southern West Bank, is an important place for Muslims and Jewish.
It is the traditional burial place of the Biblical patriarchs Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, and their wives.
As a result, it has a religious significance for the Abrahamic religions -, especially for Jews and Muslims.
Although Christianity is an Abrahamic religion, Christians haven’t paid as much attention to it as the Jews and the Muslims did.
On the first hand, the most preferable and used method is taking a private day tour in Hebron.

On the other hand, some folks may prefer using public transport to save the costs of the trip.

Getting from Jerusalem to Hebron by a public Bus
Before a visit to Hebron by a public bus, you should consider first where you are trying to reach.
Today, due to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, Hebron is a split city and divided into two parts:
H1 section is entirely Palestinian and under full Palestinian control.
Meanwhile, section H2 contains mostly Jews and smaller Arab population which is under full Israeli control.
The Cave of the Patriarchs, the main attraction you will be visiting probably, is on the border between H1 and H2.
If you are visibly Jewish, it is probably not safe to travel unaccompanied to the “other” side of Hebron.
However, if you look and sound like an international tourist, you should be fine on both sides.
Getting from Jerusalem to the Jewish side
Egged, operate a direct bus line between Jerusalem and the Jewish side of Hebron.
From Jerusalem, you will have to take bus 381 or 383 from the central bus station.
The final stop is in front of the Cave of the Patriarchs on the Jewish side, making it the best way to reach the cave.
Getting from Jerusalem to the Palestinian side
From Jerusalem, take bus 21 from the Sultan Suleiman bus station just outside the Damascus gate.
Tell the driver you are trying to reach Hebron or Al-Khalil, and he will drop you off at Bethlehem bus Station.
From there, proceed to the bottom floor, where you will find servees – the Palestinian version of the “Sherut” shared taxis.
They will be able to take to Hebron for a very small fare but make sure to get a fixed price before getting on the taxi.
Also, arriving at the Jewish Kiryat Arba, you can walk directly into the Palestinian part of Hebron.
We recommend you to consult Google Maps for the best method for reaching your destination.
However, taking the short ride with the Egged bus might be more convenient for coming there the first time.
