If Jerusalem is the Holy City, Tel Aviv is the Non-Stop City, then Haifa is Israel’s Workers’ City.

However, standing on the beautiful slopes of Mount Carmel opposite the facing the Mediterranean Sea, about an hour’s drive north of Tel Aviv, you’d be quick to realise it’s really an undiscovered gem.

What do explore in Haifa

There are interesting and fun things to do in Haifa including the Carmelit Mountain Train Cable Cars, Bahai Gardens, German Colony, Louis Promenade, Japanese Art at the Tikotin Museum, cool submarines at the Navy Museum, Wine Tasting at the nearby vineyards and the Ein Hod “artist” Village, a 20 minutes’ drive south, unique boutique studios, living artists and sculptors. Haifa also enjoys a mixed population of Jews and Arabs who peacefully coexist and the result is some amazing fusions of Arabic and Jewish learning, industry and living cultures across the city.

Is a city nice to navigate as it’s set on the side of a mountain, however this means that the scenery and terrain is stunning. From the top of Mount Carmel, take in the view from the Louis Promenade across the Port of Haifa heading north right across into the Western Galilee. Hop on the Carmelit, Israel’s only subway system which travels up and down the mountain, and at the bottom check out Hof Hacarmel, Haifa’s beaches.

Haifa cable cars, going up and down the mountain, can be clearly seen. At the bottom of the cable cars, across the highway, is a slew of interesting sites including the Clandestine Immigration & Navy Museum (with the ships and submarine exceptionally visible from the cable car), the National Maritime Museum and Elijah’s Cave, of Biblical fame.

At the top of the ride, in the wooded Carmel area, a monastery by the name of Stella Maris, Latin for “Star of the Sea” can be found. Stretching back to the Crusader era, the monks originally inhabited the caves on the side of the mountain (and some of the period buildings can still be seen at Elijah’s Cave) and were forced to flee until the time of Napoleon who ruled Haifa in the end of the 18th Century.

Bah’ai Gardens

Haifa’s crown jewel when it comes to tourism is undoubtedly the Bah’ai Gardens which form part of the Bah’ai World Center, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. These beautiful gardens are a place of pilgrimage for members of the Bah’ai faith and are set across terraces sloping down Mount Carmel towards the beautiful Mediterranean Sea. At the bottom of the gardens is Haifa’s German Colony, with its pretty streets of restored templar-era buildings. The main street of the German Colony runs direct from the bottom of the gardens towards the coast and is lined with restaurants and cafes.

Museums in Haifa

There is a great selection of museums in Haifa. Most notably, the Madatech Science and Technology Museum is Israel’s national museum of Science. Great for kids, this museum is full of fascinating interactive displays, translated mostly into English, covering a wealth of great interesting topics. The city’s zoo, the Haifa Educational Zoo, beautifully set on Mount Carmel, has over 100 species of wildlife, whilst the city’s Clandestine Immigration and Navy Museum chronicles the story of Israel’s Navy and some of its major successes.

The Haifa City Museum has a varied schedule of exhibitions ranging from film to art.

The Tikotin Museum of Japanese Art in Haifa is the only Japanese museum in all of the Middle East. Founded by a Holocaust survivor who hid his collection of Japanese artifacts somewhere in Holland during the war, the museum has much to offer – a genuine glimpse at the historical culture of Japan. From the samurai swords that ruled Japan with razor-sharp precision to the carefully crafted fans that imbues much of Japan’s peaceful culture, the Tikotin museum is a home away from home for all things Japanese.

Culture & Events in Haifa

Haifa’s biggest cultural event is the International Film Festival, which runs for one week each year at the end of September and transforms the city into a party city with over a hundred films of all genres shown. The city is also hosts an annual festival called the Holiday of Holidays which celebrates the Jewish, Christian, and Muslim festivals which fall in the month of December.
