The main theme at Ein Hod is art. The residents of the village live and breathe art, and at the weekend they open their houses to show off their creations. Take a stroll through the cobbled streets and alleys where many exciting secrets can be discovered. There are also a number of small museums which hold more permanent exhibitions of the exceptional artwork available.
Ein Hod is located in the Carmel Mountains and from nearly any point
within the village there are stunning views of the Mediterranean and the
Carmel Forest. Unfortunately, Ein Hod and the landscape around it were
slightly damaged during the Carmel Fire in December 2010, but the views
are still well worth a trip.
The village offers various cafes, restaurants and even a bar where impromptu jam sessions can sometimes be heard.
Entrance to the village is free. Some museums charge an entrance fee. For more information about arranging a visit call: 04 9841126.
