Sculptures Garden (Gan Hapsalim), Haifa

(100+ reviews on the web)
Art Gallery
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.

  • גינה נהדרת עם פסלי ברונזה של פסלת מוכשרת בשם אורסולה מלבין, שתרמה את כל הפסלים שבגינה. הפסלים מתארים סיטואציות חיים כמו משחקי ילדים, הורות וכדומה. הגינה היא ממש פנינה ומומלץ מאד לבקר בה.  more »
  • למגיעים למקום מובטח נוף מדהים המשקיף לנמל חיפה, הקריות, עכו וראש הניקרה. ביום טוב אפשר לראות את הר החרמון. לאחר שהצטלמנו, נעבור לגן הפסלים. לבעלי מוגבלות בנגישות, שימו לב, הגן על צלע ההר בשיפוע חזק, כ...  more »

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Beatutiful scalpture garden with great view to the bay.
  • Small, intimate garden, great view towards the harbor, nice figurative sculptures by Ursula Malbin. Usually very calm, is used by many communities: Christians, Muslims and Jews alike. Nice place for a picnic or a Nargila.
  • A beautiful garden with nice sculptures overlooking the Mediterranean. There are plenty of benches to take a rest, and you can pass through this sculpture garden as you are walking down from the top of the Baha'i Garden.
