ADDITIONAL INFO

Bahá’í Gardens

  • You can either walk up to the Gardens or take the bus. Keep in mind that if you walk, it is a 30 minute walk that takes you through a lot of stairs and can be especially challenging during the summer time!
  • The Tour of the Bahai Gardens is organized by the Bahai community and free. Check their website for further information on guided tours and self guided visits.
  • Since the garden is a Holy Place, wear modest clothing that covers your shoulders and knees!

Our Tip

  • After visiting the Stella Maris Monastery on Mt. Carmel, we recommend you take the cable car. One ride down costs 25 NIS. However, you can also get a combi-ticket for 35 NIS, which will take you up and down the mountain. You can pay in cash or with credit card.
  • Haifa is very hilly and has a lot of stairs. Wear comfortable shoes and bring a lot of water and sunscreen with you! Due to the landscape we do not recommend the tour for people with walking difficulties or health problems.
  • Make sure you download the Moovit App for departure times!

TRAIN STATION SECURITY CHECKS

  • Entry to all train stations is subject to a personal baggage check.
  • Every station entrance is manned by security guards who operate in accordance with Israel Police guidelines and are committed to upholding your dignity and safety during the security check.
  • Please be aware that lines may develop at the security check stations during peak hours in the morning and afternoon/evening (6:00am-9:00am and 15:00-19:00), so it is important that you arrive sometime prior to your train’s departure.
