at some point in time, this neighborhood's inhabitant were mostly Germans, hence the name.
Now, it's a few blocks area full of restaurants and shops.

Lively Area with Numerous Restaurants & Lodgings
Dec 2019
Lovely area of Haifa, with the Baha'i Gardens presiding above on the northern slopes of Mount Carmel. Containing numerous restaurants and lodgings, we visited during the 2019 Christmas Season, and pleasantly discovered that this area was one of the few locations in Israel with festive, Christian holiday splendor. Christmas lights spanned the busy street, while restaurants were adorned in Christmas decor. The German Colony was established in 1868 by the German Templars and today is a highly recommended stop while visiting Haifa.

Everything about this location/neighborhood is stunning and lovely. Plenty of options for dining out - coffee, dinner, nargila (hooka), breakfast; quick 'metronit' bus to take you around; hostels aplenty. The Bahai Gardens hold presence at one end of this neighborhood, while the port of Haifa makes up the other end. Stunning scenery all around.

At the bottom of the Bahai's Gardens you find the German Colony, this area has houses from the time of the German Templars, they have been kept and they host restaurants and stores, its a very nice walk for several blocks which continue down to the port. There are many options for food.

History and nature combined
Feb 2020
The place is packed with history and has lots of sites to visit and see. It also has the Baha'i's gardens which provide free tours in various languages and adds its beauty to the place.
At night the whole street is lighted up and its very nice just to walk up and down the street. Lots of restaurants to pick from, in all cuisine styles.

I was raised in this neighborhood but coming backs after so many years made me realize how life has chanced it and how much I loved it in the past when in Haifa it’s a must.
