Botanical Gardens


The Jerusalem Botanical Gardens has more than six thousand plant species, which were brought to Israel from all over the world.

The plants are displayed in six sections, North America, South Africa, Europe, Australia, Central Asia, Mediterranean, each designed to create a miniature landscape of the region of origin of the plants.

During the summer and holidays, the botanical gardens hosts festivals with workshops and activities. During the Winter they host special weekend activities for families. Check the calendar for details.

There is also a Garden Train for kids to enjoy (check for the train hours in advance).

NEW Discovery Trail

The Jerusalem Botanical Gardens has opened up an exciting hands on trail for kids to explore water, earth and plants. The path takes you from station to station and gives kids the opportunity to play with the water, build with the earth and explore the plant life.
