I had the honor and opportunity to visit Mount Herzl on Israel's Memorial Day, Yom Hazikaron. It was filled with people paying tribute to the blessed and courageous soldiers who died defending the wonderful state of Israel. The cemetery is beautifully laid out, and is in a lovely hilly setting in western Jerusalem, right next to Yad Vashem, the holocaust... More

Many beautiful plots and sections with exquisite landscaping and touching tributes to fallen soldiers that are very individualistic, unlike American military cemeteries and monuments. Really insightful experience. Go early and have it to yourself except for the ancient gardeners.

One of the most important places we can visit in Jerusalem is the Mount Herzl National Cemetery. This is the Israel's national resting site for some of Israel's beloved leaders. Prime Ministers Golda... More

A cemetery to commemorate the fallen heroes of Israel. It is a place to go see if you are interested in history, and has beautiful gardens throughout.

See the tombs of the victims of terrorism, heroes who gave their lives and great leaders of Israel. We got to see Yitzhak Rabin's and Golda Meir as well as the Father of Zionism, Theodore Herzl.

I have visited Mount Herzl National Cemetery over the years. On this visit, I discovered the self-guided path that has a smart phone accompaniment that can be downloaded from the Internet. I also discovered the thoughtful signage that marks the direct path from the cemetery to Yad Vashem. I suggest you consider taking the light rail to the cemetery and... More

Very pleasant uphill walk connecting Yad Va Shem and the Hertzl Museum. Unfortunately no tours in English were available the day we visited the Hertzl museum.
