Accommodations

Participants in the 2015 Lautenschläger Azekah Archaeological Expedition will stay at the Kibbutz Gal On guest houses during the week.

Kibbutz Gal On (web | map) stands on a hill approximately 20 kilometers from the Mediterranean Sea, southwest of Bet Shemesh. It is conveniently situated a short 16 kilometers from Tel Azekah. This means that journey between the site and the Kibbutz is a short 15-minute bus ride each day, without roads that wind up and down mountains.

A short bus ride of 10.3 miles from Kibbutz Gal On to Tel Azekah.

The kibbutz has wireless internet, a local market, laundry facilities (which are associated with an additional cost), a swimming pool, as well as common areas for volunteers to hang out in the evening and mingle. Rooms are designed to house up to five people and are fully equipped with air conditioning, private ensuite bathroom and shower, TV, refrigerator, and tea and coffee service.
