In the heart of Zichron Yaakov the pedestrian mall is an experience that should not be missed. Each step is a leap back in history to the late 19th century. Original buildings now house stores, restaurants and bars while the story of the pioneers is...More

We spent a pleasant hour wandering round the shops and galleries here. Very relaxed atmosphere and welcoming staff in the stores. Also visited the Rothschild Gardens which were immaculate, and an oasis of calm and tranquility.

Hamaysdim street is a short pedestrian mall with a range of stores, artists galleries, and restaurants. Among them are historical buildings heralding back to Zichron's founding in 1882, and tributes to Baron Rothschild. Look for parking in the back streets.
