Switzerland Forest in Israel!
I’ll bet you didn’t know there is a Switzerland Forest in Israel. The forest stands on the southwestern slope high above the Kinneret, with vistas of the Kinneret below, the Golan across and surrounding areas. You don’t need to make it to the top to enjoy the views, as the ride up through the Switzerland Forest will make you want to stop every couple of meters. And there is good reason to stop since there are picnic areas along the way that make a lovely outing in a picturesque setting, literally hanging above the Kinneret.
The Switzerland Forest is situated near Tiveria and the Kever of Rebbi Meir Baal HaNes. There are many nice hiking trails as well as observation points with lookout terraces. If you are driving by and see a sign towards Switzerland Forest and are not in rush to your next stop, it is worth taking a quick drive up the road for a little piece of Switzerland in Israel!
