“The national military graveyard”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2013

Herzl has a special grave there. Search out the special monuments to groups of the fallen. Mt Herzl is also a very nice "mountain" with walking trails.

“Mainly for locals”

Unless you are really into Israel's history and her past wars not much to see or do over here. Besides that, very respectable and well kept cemetery

“somber but beautiful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 30, 2013

We were impressed with the dignity with which the fallen dead were laid to rest, and the memorials for dignitaries and unknown fighters. It is peaceful and well-maintained. An inspiration for us as to how to revere those who served.

“Mount Herzl”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 28, 2013

It's a beautiful but very sad place full of the graves of the most famous Israelis. You can see beautiful views of Jerusalem from up there. My favourite part was the soldiers part of the cemetary, it struck me as being incredibly peaceful as well as sad. If you have a guide there are so many more stories attached to the grave sites that make it personal - otherwise it is just a feeling.
