Since its beginnings the Hospice is playing a major role as cultural emissary to the Orient. Space is given to contemporary art and music in the framework of exhibitions and concerts. The Austrian Hospice considers itself a meeting ground for different cultures within the realm of art.

The ecclesiastical institution known as the "Austrian Hospice of the Holy Family" is a pilgrims’ guest-house belonging to the Austrian Catholic Church in the Holy Land. Established in 1854, it started its activities in 1863. Emperor Franz Joseph stayed at the Hospice in November 1869. The interior design ensures modern standards while retaining the 19th century ambience.
