We stayed at the Rosa Inn, which I believe is part of the former German Colony. It is a historic district with guest houses and restaurants. Well worth a visit. Plus, you have amazing views of the Bahá'í Gardens and Shrine of the Báb, which...More

There are plenty of restaurants and a great place for a picture of the Baha'i Gardens - especially at sunset. We only visited this area once as I think there are more interesting places to see around the Haifa area.

It's cute and pretty to walk around but a lot of the restaurants are super expensive. Worth walking up and down the streets after seeing the Baha'i gardens.

Questions & AnswersAsk a question
Where exactly is the German colony? And if you find a place to stay there, are the other sites in Haifa in walking distance, or do you need to take busses, or what? Also, is there a tour of the Technion? (for the mathematically oriented visitors)

Hi There are some boutique hotels and hostels in and around the German Colony. But the main hotels are on top of the Carmel mountain. Not all sites are at walking distance. Buses are useful. Technion- not sure. If I can... More
