Home > In Haifa You Can Use Cable Cars

Did you know… that in Haifa, you have cable cars that bring you to the other side of the city?

Haifa is Israel’s third largest city located in the north of the country. The west side of Haifa is located at sea level and borders the Mediterranean sea whereas the rest of the city is built on the slopes of Mount Carmel.

In order to easily move from the lower parts of the city, to the higher parts up the mountain, there’s a cable car/gondola lift every 15 seconds to transport you around the city.

Apart from trains and busses, the cable car is a normal and convenient way of transport for the inhabitants of Haifa.

You too can choose to live in Haifa and use the cable car as your preferred way of transport! Come, make Aliyah and settle in the land of Israel!
