The Hospitallers, the Order of the Knights of St. John, built this impressive fortress more than 700 years ago.

Very impressive. They are rebuilding a lot of excavated areas. The walk through the fortress, halls and tunnels is a fantastic experience of walking down history. Having a food guide or doing through a tour would help.

If in Acre, do the Crusader Fortress, with the Audiobook, but don't bother with the package that includes the Hammam, the wall treasures and the Templer tunnel. You can skip these three, they are a total waste of time. Better use your time for some...More

Wandering through the Fortress was so informative. The 3-D Virtual mini movie experience of the City in the Crusader era was incredible to watch. Great for kids with a fascination in knights and swords.

This is a very interesting place to visit! You'll be walking around with audioguide and through some sort of wifi connection, the guide will start talking and you don't have to do anything. If you are in a group, you may experience that the guide...More

Loved this beautiful, historical fortress. We had a tour - which I would recommend as it is a sprawling complex and would be easy to miss things. Loved that it is a living place with hundreds of families living in the walls! It is a...More

Fascinating mostly underground fortress now used both as a museum and as an art gallery. There are several artsy shops inside as well as places to have a snack or drink. We stopped here with our guide for about an hour and it was worth...More

Strongly suggest a carrier if you plan on touring the Templar tunnels and walking the fortress walls. There are numerous steps and uneven walkways, some from cobblestone so pushing a stroller would be problematic. Enjoy

The prior two answers are sound. The cheapest option is the train; taking an express bus /shared ride to Tel Aviv and then catching the train to Acre is probably fastest/cheapest without a rental car. (We took a shuttle to... More

The website for the castle has the prices. I can't post the website name here (TripAdvisor rules) but search for Akko crusader museum and follow the links. The Okashi museum is essentially an art gallery - well worth it and... More
