History Lesson

An interesting tunnel that was built connecting Turkey, Lebanon and Israel. It was bombed to stop arabs coming into Israel. The tunnel itself is nothing much, but the 10 minute video is interesting.

Interesting history, but not much to the tunnel

This tunnel was used to connect a train from Lebanon to Israel and the bridge at the midway point was destroyed as a precaution at the start of the war of independence. Not much to see, but a good way to exit the site if you don't want to take the steep cable car back up.

Overview
Dec 2017 • Solo
Walking through the old (and not so old) railway tunnels at Rosh Hanikra is a lesson in history. The film which visitors can watch there has about the same function, and it is better to watch it before visiting the rest. When I arrived, it was not so evident to me that Rosh Hanikra was not only a natural wonder, but also a very strategic place. You live and learn...

Not that exciting
Jan 2018 • Family
When you go down to the Rosh Hanikra grottoes, you can also walk through the former railway tunnels. Not that exciting really, but worth the stroll. In the one past the grottoes, there is a short video.

A tunnel is a tunnel

Our tour guide took us through this tunnels. They were okay. Like I said a tunnel is a tunnel. Not worth it.

The film is nicely done. It explains the history of the area. The theater is actually in the railroad tunnel.

A railroad to nowhere
Jun 2017 • Couples
The railway tunnels at Rosh Hanikra are part of a coastal railway system that ran from Cairo to Istanbul in the past. After the Israeli state was proclaimed in 1948, the tunnels were blocked off with stone steel and concrete. While the rails still exist on the floor of these tunnels, they serve as a theater that projects a film about this place and the railroad on the face of the wall that was erected.
