Attractions at the Gardens

Jump aboard the Flower train for a roughly half hour's guided tour of all the Gardens' sections. You can get on and off at selected points along the route, so long as you've agreed this with the drive in advance. Please check our news section for info about any changes to train schedules resulting from construction work planned for 2013.

Join a walking tour organized by the Friends of the Botanical Gardens. For details, please look at this site's calendar.

Self-guided walking tours can be downloaded from our Hebrew-language website,www.botanic.co.il. We plan to make downloadable self-guided tours available in other languages, including English, so watch this space!

If your'e visiting with kids, pick up a Young Scientist's Kit at the ticket office - this has activities, as well as a magnifying glass, and the challenge you'll need for the African Savannah Grass Maze. The maze includes a number of plants that help us humans. Find the plants, and then try to find your way out of the maze!

To go back in time, walk our Bible Plants trail, which looks at the significant role plants play in the Old Testament. You'll find fascinating info (in English) on our contemporary plaques, and an English-language audio-guide is in production - ask at the ticket desk.




Finally, have a relaxing drink or meal at our lakeside restaurant  Caffit (Kosher dairy!). And don't leave without looking into the shop!
