“a graveyard but also art gallery”
Reviewed August 20, 2012

make sure you come visit this location with someone who can tell and explain about the names of the tombs, or at least a good book that can do so- otherwise- a little pointless.

“The Jerusalem forest circuit walk”
Reviewed August 19, 2012

If you're visiting Yad Vashem and mount Herzl and still have some energy left in your feet, take a walk through the Jerusalem forest trail which goes around both hills. It has a great view of the Jerusalem forest and the surrounding villages of Motza, Beit Zait and Ein Karem. It's also a great spot for a picnic. You can find a good map of the trail at the KKL site, or simply seek the beginning of the trail at the end of Pirchei Chen street.

“So moving”
Reviewed July 27, 2012

Make sure you go with a good guide otherwise it is just a cemetery. Our guide started with Herzl's grave, adding many tidbits I hadn't heard. Each section she had stories which gave us a new perspective on how many made the ultimate sacrifice.

“Powerful”
Reviewed July 10, 2012

Har Herzl has to be one of the most powerful places in Israel. Seeing the dedication that Israel has to its soldiers and those who spent their life creating and protecting Israel is incredible. I was honored to be with IDF soldiers while I was there on Birthright and it was absolutely inspiring and furthered my connection to Israel by making me understand how the IDF is protecting not just Israel, but Judaism itself. If you have never been here, you need to go! It truly is a powerful and amazing experience!
