Sculptures Garden (Gan Hapsalim), Haifa
(4.1/5 based on 90 reviews on the web)
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.

  • מקום נחמד ורגוע יש נוף מהמם למפרץ חיפה והעיר.. הפארק קטן ואין בו הרבה מה לעשות יש כמה פסלים מענינים לדעתי לא כל כך מתאים לחוויה משפחתית או ביקור ילדים כי הוא ממש רגוע וקטן.. אבל יפה שווה ביקור. 
  • This is a must see. On the walk up to the Baha'i Gardens you pass this hidden sculpture gardens by Ursula Malbin, a German Jew who fled Nazi Germany. So many bronze life-sized sculptures of women and ...  more »
  • רוגע ונינוחות יורדת על מבקרי הגן. ההליכה הנעימה מלמעלה למטה בשבילים הירוקים. ומסביב פסלים נפלאים יצוקים בברונזה. ממש חוויה מהנה ונעימה לכל המשפחה. אפשר לגעת ולטפס אף לשבת בחיק הפסלים. והנוף מקסים.

  • 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.
