The tower of the Church of the Redeemer offers a great panoramic view of the neighborhood of the Old City and much of the New City.

To the south you look across David Street to the Jewish Quarter with the Western Wall. The city of David is beyond the city walls.

In the southwest one looks over the Armenian Quarter to the Dormition Abbey. Further west, the so-called Tower of David stands out in front of the panorama of the New City.

Just west of the Church of the Redeemer is the so-called "Muristan" in the Christian Quarter of the city. The Franciscan Church of the Saviour dominates the northwest of this area.

Just north of the Church of the Redeemer is the precinct of the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, the holiest place in Christendom. To the northeast of this one overlooks the Arab Quarter with the Austrian Hospice, St. Anne's Church on the Pool of Bethesda and the Via Dolorosa.

To the east of the Church of the Redeemer is the former Jewish Temple Mount, today the Haram esh-Sharif with the Dome of the Rock and the Al Aqsa Mosque. One can also see beyond the Kedron Valley to Mount Scopus with the Hebrew University and the Mount of Olives with the Church of the Ascension, the Jewish cemetery and the "Auguste Victoria Compound", which houses the GPIA.
