Tourism in Palestine has been gaining a prominent interest among young Europeans. However, most of them have an inconsistent knowledge of the reality on the ground. In this context, the Franco-German Cultural Center has initiated in 2014 this online travel & urban guide to Palestinian cities with the support of the Franco-German Cultural Fund.
The project’s objective is to bring a contemporary, unique and alternative approach to visiting Palestine, primarily destined for the youth. It illustrates also the will of France and Germany to strengthen their cultural cooperation in Palestine.
Young professional journalists from France, Germany and Palestine have come together and formed the editorial committee of www.paltrips.ps. They traveled through Palestinian cities and landscapes, met people, heard stories and shared experiences and visions. Meet the team (below)!
The website – meant to be a collaborative platform – is the result of this work: it invites to discover Palestine through written, video, audio and visual contributions of 10 main cities: Bethlehem, Gaza, Hebron, Jenin, Jericho, Jerusalem, Nablus, Qalqilia, Ramallah and Tulkarm.
Local partner institutions and experts in all cities have greatly contributed to the success of this project.
The Franco-German Cultural Center in Ramallah supports the continuation and development of www.paltrips.ps and invites individuals or institutions to contribute and engage into the process.
