The Jerusalem Botanical Gardens offer a 30-acre retreat of beauty and tranquility in the heart of Israel's largest metropolis.
Something is always blooming in the Gardens' six geographical sections, which hint at landscapes of origin. Here, you can travel from Europe to North America, from Southern Africa to Australia, and from Asia to the Mediterranean, without stepping on a single plane!
With the largest plant collection in Israel (some 10,000 species), the Gardens truly present 'biodiversity live'!
Visitors can relax aboard the Flower Train, or wander along enchanting, leafy paths. Highlights include a colorful indoor tropical conservatory, a Plants of the Bible trail, a herb and medicinal plant garden, and an African savannah grass maze.
The Gardens run a variety of festivals and activities throughout the year, and boast a picturesque lakeside restaurant ("Caffit BeGan", kosher dairy) and plant nursery.
