Most Known Viewpoints in Haifa
I’ve visited the most common viewpoints in Haifa. The most famous are the ones next to the Bahai Gardens: Louis Promenade and Sderot Ben Gurion. Less familiar viewpoints in Haifa include University viewpoint and next to Stella Maris Monastery. But, this time I decided to do something different. Instead of going to well-known places I looked for new ones. So I sat down with Google maps and Google street view and started to search. After about an hour I found two potential places.
Last Friday I visited those places and today I’ll share with you the result.

Less Familiar Viewpoints in Haifa
The first place was at Ha-Galil Street 118, Haifa. From this viewpoint, you can see the industrial zone and Check Post area.
Yad LaBanim Road
The second viewpoint was: Yad LaBanim Road 97, Haifa. Well, actually this is not a point but rather a part of the street. I walked from Yad LaBanim Road 97 till Yad LaBanim Road 210 to get these shots:
And from this point, I started to walk back to the car.
The reason I wanted to try Yad LaBanim Road is since it’s on the edge of the mountain and it allows to see both the downtown and the industrial zone.

Can you see the Bahai Temple in this shot?
