I travelled as part of a group with Lightline Pilgrimages and we had a wonderful time at this oasis on the shores of the Sea of Galilee. This is not a place for people who like the busy hum drum of Tiberias itself. Rather, just a few kilometres outside of the town, this is a German, Christian Guest House with... More

I recently stayed at the Pilgerhaus Tabgha. Special thanks to the Ali in the restaurant for arranging meals for my son who had food allergies. Also to the thoughtful staff who made sure that our room heating was on when we returned from a long day sightseeing.

After hustle and bustle of Jerusalem and West Bank over Christmas, we enjoyed the quiet and serenity of this place. Room is spacious - like a one bedroom apartment. We got to swim - at our own risk - at the lake (not suitable for little kids). Got a chance to come and listen to vesper (half hour evening chants/songs)... More

Sounds a bit paradoxal : a little Paradise as there is a wonderful view on Lake Tiberias,much green, a wonderful terrace to relax or read parts of Jesus life which took place here. A place to meditate as this is a pilgrim's hotel : so no TV in the rooms and no swimming pool. The rooms are without thrills, but... More

I have stayed here twice, once by myself and once with our crew. I must say that I felt a bit guilty staying here on a pilgrimage because of how comfortable it is. I got great sleep while I was here and the landscaping is gorgeous. It is right on the shore of the Sea of Galilee. I was able... More

It was one of the best hotels I stayed in my pilgrimage to the Holy Land. Everything was just so nice... Great place! I think that the Pilgerhaus Tabgha is run by Germans, so maybe that's why it is so well organized. They have very tasty food, the internet, the buildings are just gorgeous, and the service is perfect. If... More

Spotlessly clean in a brilliant location by the Sea of Galilee with its own private stony beach Drinks are a bit on the expensive side and the food was nothing to write home about but the excellent location makes up for some shortfalls.

A sense of German precision is evident. Thou shalt not eat breakfast / lunch / dinner till the stipulated time. In fact the doors to the restaurant refuse to open until the designated minute. Wifi is available in the reception area and on the terrace. You can safely swim in the sea which has crystal clear water and plenty of... More

If you are looking for a quite and spiritual place to stay just at the shore of the Lake of Galilee - this it the perfect place to be! The rooms are basic, but comfortable, without TV. Free Wi-Fi available is in the lobby and cafeteria area. The staff is absolute fluent in german and English, with a true hospitality.

Beautiful location on the sea of Galilee – husband and I stayed here as part of a tour group (tourist not pilgrims). I would imagine pilgrims would find this place relaxing and spiritual but I am writing this review from the eyes of a tourist. The location of the Pilgerhaus is private and away from the town area, which means... More
