A picturesque city in the north of the country, Haifa combines history and appearances to create an interesting and relaxing destination.
Change things up with these side-trips from Haifa: Sea of Galilee (in Tiberias), Nazareth (Nazareth Village & The Church of the Annunciation) and Mount Tabor (in Kfar Tavor). And it doesn't end there: admire the natural beauty at The Baha'i Gardens, stroll around Caesarea National Park, look for gifts at Mishi Chocolate Boutique, and take in the architecture and atmosphere at Church of the Primacy of Peter.

Baden-Baden, Germany to Haifa is an approximately 9-hour combination of flight and car. You'll lose 1 hour traveling from Baden-Baden to Haifa due to the time zone difference. Expect somewhat warmer weather when traveling from Baden-Baden in August: highs in Haifa hover around 36°C, while lows dip to 30°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 25th (Sun) so you can travel to Masada.
