    Garden Paradise of Haifa
    Bahai Garden was the highlight of Haifa when we visited the city on March 19, 2023. The stunning terraced garden has many colorful flowers and well-maintained lawns and shrubberies. The stairs leading down to the main temple offered a great vantage viw of Haifa's port and city. The mood was serene and harmonious that reflected the pillars of their Bahai Faith. The access to this wonderful garden is free. However, prospective visitors must register for an appointment slot at their official website. Most tourist were only shown the view from the top. We saw many tourist buses stopped for photos from the veranda on top of the garden. We did not see groups of tours going through the garden. Taking a bus from the main train station to the top entrance was easy. It was one bus ride with several stops. Google maps worked really well in transits here in Haifa.

    Beautiful Baha’i Gardens
    The Baha’i Gardens in Haifa are spectacular! We booked a tour and our guide was extremely knowledgeable. The history of the Baha’i faith was something new to me and it was fascinating. The background of the gardens was also very interesting. Well worth the trip to Haifa. There was a second guide with our group, Lena, who came over to our 21 year old daughter to make sure her shoulders were covered. As my daughter struggled to get her wrap in place and said “I’m trying” to which Lena replied “try harder” My kid has anxiety and had a panic attack on the steps in the garden. Lena was unbelievably rude and condescending. She told me I needed to do “something about this” and we should probably leave. She then encouraged us to leave immediately because we were now behind the group. I apologized for being inconvenient and said we would catch up and continue. Which we did but it was very disappointing to have a guide be so obnoxious in such a beautiful place. Another thing to note: the restrooms are under renovation and there is no toilet anywhere close by. You are probably 15-20 minutes from a bathroom.

    Wonderful view over Haifa and the Med
    If you have the chance to visit the beautiful city of Haifa, you don't want to miss this wonderful park! From the entrance at the top, you have wonderful view over the city and the Mediterranean Sea. We've been lucky enough to entrer the terrasses, though it seems like it's not always possible. Nonetheless, simply the views from up there are worth the visit.

    10/10, would highly recommend for anyone seeking a serene escape with a side of architectural brilliance.
    The architectural design of the gardens is mind-blowing. The way the steps seamlessly blend with the natural landscape is simply genius. Whether you're a nature lover, an architecture enthusiast, or just someone looking for a quiet spot to contemplate life, the Baha'i Gardens tick all the boxes. It's not just a garden; it's an experience that leaves you feeling refreshed and, dare I say, a bit enlightened.

    Beautiful!
    We signed up for the free 45 min tour offered by the Bahai Gardens staff - and we had a wonderful experience. The tour guide explained the history, and theology of Bahai as well as sharing info about the gardens. There are really 700 steps down as part of the tour - and that’s only half of the property. I highly recommend a visit to Haifa and these gardens!!

Amazing view, beautiful garden. It’s a religious place so dress accordingly. It 700 steps to walk down, so have sensible shoes. Not for children or people with bad knees/legs.
