  • That's really all there is to say, the zoo is quite small and poor, definitely not worth 38 shekels for the ticket. Also, it's very very hilly - you have to climb all the time.  more »
  • In Israel, and for the sixth time in Haifa for the first time. The city has many wonderful places, but special-Zoo. Very green, well-maintained, some particularly hospitable. Walking in the Zoo 4:00 and not noticed. Very recommend to visit

  • A small, but surprisingly nice zoo in the heart of Haifa. Great for the kids. Be prepared for steep climbs (as in most of the city)
  • Love this zoo! You could spent most of the day just walking through the place and watching various animals and birds.
  • Nice educational zoo, bring good footwear - there are a lot of stairs and moderate hill climbing.
  • Very nice place to go with young kids, right in the center of the Carmel.
  • Good for children. Interactive

Where to stay in Haifa

Look in the German Colony district close to the port to find the main bulk of the accommodations in Haifa. With its proximity to many of the urban attractions, this area has become a modern tourism hot spot. Here, you'll discover a rich mix of luxury hotels and boutiques set in well-maintained old blocks, as well as particularly budget-friendly options such as guesthouses. Alternatively, the coastline provides plenty of upmarket hotels in the more developed neighborhoods, and a scattering of guesthouses and resorts close to the sandy beaches.
