Israel buzzes – and how!

When thinking of Israel, most people have a political or biblical image. Let us enlighten you: that image is not complete. Israel has many more sides, and above all, it is hip, hot, and trendy. A vast number of designers provide a true shop-till-you-drop experience, and also an opportunity to meet them and learn about the story ‘behind’ it all. Award-winning restaurants keep popping up, as well as boutique hotels, there are reputable galleries all over the country, and the beach bars along the sunny coasts do not fall short of the hottest European ones! You can also find eco-friendly villages with a focus on reflection, peace, and quiet, as well as numerous organic, vegetarian restaurants.

And that is the Israel we want to show you.

Dive into Tel Aviv at night, the city that never sleeps, see the Bauhaus architecture in the daytime, or take a wine tour in the Golan Heights. Soar in a hot air balloon over the desert, or miss a couple of hours of sleep to gaze at the magical star-studded skies.

Get to know the country in a different way, by bike: in the north or the south of the country, or in and around Jerusalem.

With this travel guide you will meet the Israel of the 21st century.

Prepare to be surprised, because we know you will!
