#4 of 15 in Museums in Haifa
Art Gallery Garden
Perched on a hilltop with scenic views of the bay, Sculptures Garden (Gan Hapsalim) displays 29 bronze sculptures by Berlin-born artist Ursula Malbin. Walk across the green grass lawns past sculptures representing children and teenagers playing with balls, hoops, kittens, and birds. A significant number of statues are nudes, which prompted a group of Orthodox Jews to make the unusual request that the artist dress them.

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.

  • Pretty small, but a nice place to visit if you're looking to relax for a minute
  • Quiet, good view, clean, nice place to relax
  • Nice out of the way park, nice statuses and enclosed sitting areas
  • Unfamiliar to many, this is one of Haifa's best parks, regardless of its petit size. The garden is decorated with real size statues that kids love climbing. Benches, green grass and the spectacular view make this a great romantic getaway. Many bring their dogs and enjoy the fully fenced park, mostly at evening time. Free entrance, no facilities, available free parking below the park.
  • It is nice spot to make a picnic and it is very close to a nice view point over Haifa. The garden itself isn't really big and the sculptures are not so expressive. I would come here only of you have some spare time in Haifa.
