The Bahai Gardens in Haifa is more impressive than the one in Acre. It closes at 5 pm so get there early to really explore this terrace garden of beauty and grandeur especially inside the shrine. The highest level has a fantastic view of Haifa's Mediterranean coastline. Public transportation is conveniently located on the highest level for a few Shequels... More

Whether you look at these gardens from below or above or whether you are inside, they will captivate you and you will admire the gardens. Beautifully designed and extremely well maintained, this place is not to be missed in a visit to Israel. The shrine is a modest one and you may have to wait a little outside as they... More

We enjoyed our trip to the gardens, it is quite a sight to see. But the place was crouded and the Arabic visitor groups were very loud so we could not really enjoy the serenity of the place. Other than that, it was a positive experience.

Absolutely must see if you are going to Akko. Beautiful garden! We went to see it from the top, where is the nicest view, but you can only go down to one level. The view was absolutely amazing. The only one thing would be nice for them to mention (on the big sign of by the guards at the entrance)... More

Had no idea how pretty this would be. We went just before sundown and it was freezing, but the gardens are worth every chilled step down. Looks difficult, but there are lots of terraces if you need a few stops to rest before descending.

Visiting here is a must if you come to Akko. Great site, fascinating story. They do it as a self-guided audio tour. But long, figure 90 minutes, and you don't get a sequential history story. More a series of deep dives focused on certain periods. Just the same well worth it.

Bahai Gardens in Haifa are much more attractive to me but Baha'i shrine outside Acre, Bahji mansion has a great historic meaning and importance to the Bahai religion followers. Beautiful park in Acre is meticulously cultivated and interestingly designed.

while a short drive outside the old city and the port, this absolute gem is a great addition to the visit fo Acre. Try to get there while the inner gardens are open to the public (9-12 daily) , Tale your time and bring a camera!

The gardens are beautiful and very well maintained, but the Haifa ones are much better looking and a bigger place to walk around. I would say these gardens are mainly for the believers and less for tourists...
