“Jerusalem Botanical Gardens”
Reviewed October 18, 2013

A visit to the Botanical Gardens situated in the vicinity of Jerusalem Center, offers a restful, entertaining walk among the world of plants. I was for two hours today on a working photography tour of the gardens. With a guided tour or a working photography tour the visitor receives in addition to the visual pleasure of admiring the multitude of common and rare species of flowers and trees, also interesting historical information about the life of the plants encountered and about transplanted new species from distant places such as Australia and their adaptation and development in Jerusalem. At the end of the visit at the entrance of the gardens near an artificial lake is one of the nicest place for coffee or light meals in Jerusalem.

“Annual visit to the JBG”
Reviewed October 10, 2013

Located just off the central university campus, the Jerusalem Botanical Gardens offers between an hour to two hours of pleasant investigation into the varied climatic and geographical gardens presented. Over the years we have visited numerous times and each time have found something new on the grounds.

“Very disappointed”
Reviewed July 22, 2013

Took the bus tour to these gardens and was extremely disappointed by the flowers and plants. Mostly bonsai plants and hardly any flowers. Cafe was nice and served nice lunch. Would not recommend it

Reviewed July 9, 2013

We had lunch at the restaurant and had a wonderful time. This is a wonderful and beautiful setting in an otherwise beige city.

“Just amazing”
Reviewed June 20, 2013 via mobile

We first sat at the Kapit coffee house and had a tasty Apfelstrudel and an Ice coffee, and then started our tour in the garden, after receiving a student discount, we wandered the green, beautiful place in the middle of the city.
The garden is divided Into continents, and even in the summer it was pretty flourish.
