We took the free tour of the Bahai Gardens in Haifa. The gardens are beautiful from the streets below and really highlight the city of Haifa. The tour starts from the top of the hill and the English tour is on a first come basis at noon daily. The tour lasts an hour and we walked down the 2,000 steps... More

Our tour group merely stopped here for a photo op, but I wish we had spent more time. You can take a free tour from the street level (walking up), which seemed like a fun thing to do. The view is stunning and definitely worth a stop.

To admire the beauty of the gardens, see it from the top terraces. It is simply a stunning panorama with the Mediterranean sea at the backdrop. The take your rime to descend into the gardens and as you descend you can admire the perfect symmetry and the architecture. For a guided tour you need reservation. The inner gardens are open... More

The 700 hundred steps that are an integral part of the Baha'i Gardens can be a feat in itself. Add very hot weather, and it can be quite daunting....But well worth the effort! Take the time to see the free, short film about the Baha;i religion too. its well worth it.

It is a must to see in Haifa. A fantastic panorama, no entrance fee, nice Bahais. You can enter the gardens for a guided tour, needs reservation

Beautifully landscaped descending gardens with geometric shapes and much symmetry. Dominates the Haifa skyline. The dome is the centerpiece but is actually not that distinguished inside.

Stunning views and spectacular landscaping but I came to Haifa hoping to learn more about the Baha'i faith. I left disappointed. I took the 12:00 p.m. tour, which is the only time it is offered in English. Our guide/volunteer had a canned script and was not open to answering any questions. The tours are also curiously timed just so that... More

I don't think I have ever seen a view this marvelous. It is an absolute must-see of Haifa, even though it might not be the easiest place to go see (only one english tour each day). But go see it anyway!!

The Bahai Gardens in Haifa are a unique place, extremely beautiful and peaceful. A tour inside the gardens is very recommended and it is also possible to easily get from the lower section of the gardens to the German Colony , another lovely area of the city.

There's just simply no place like it in the world. Stunningly beautiful, amazing views of Haifa Bay. But best of all immensely serene and spiritual environment. Do check website for operating hours as they are limited.
