Rosh Pinna Things to Do

  • the town

    Although tired we loved strolling around Rosh Pinna, the small cobbled streets along with the numerous steps brought us to many picturesque corners and we liked the fact there weren’t many people around. There are many art galleries in town, you can find some nice paintings or other items like a store with unique colorful glass lamps.Most visitors...

  • Nimrod Lookout

    I love viewpoints and open landscapes so visiting Nimrod Lookout at Rosh Pinna was a must. It’s an observation point over the Hulah valley but also a memorial site. Nimrod Segev was a local soldier (born in Rosh Pina in 1977) that died in 2006 during the second Lebanon War. He was on duty that day (a loader in a merkava tank) while his tank was hit...

  • Synagogue

    Walking in the old part of Rosh Pina we noticed this Old Synagogue which was open that evening and decided to take a look. At the door they asked us if we are jews because they wanted to find 10 believers for the prayer (typical custom in synagogues). I stood for a while listening to the prayer while I was reading about the Synagogue. It was the...

  • Visit the Rothschild Gardens

    Rosh Pina may have been settled by Romanians, but it was Baron de Rothschild who financed a number of early settlements including Rosh Pina, and came to be known as the Benefactor among the locals. There's a lovely garden in his name in the middle of the village, full of beauganvillia and pine trees. The garden is on an incline. At the top is a...

  • Take a Stroll Along the Cobblestone...

    Half the fun of Rosh Pina must be strolling along the cobbled main street. You're treated to views of Mt. Hermon in the distance, and beauganvillia and pomegranates up close. You can stop at any one of the restaurants or pubs that dot the street, and enjoy the view and a cold drink or a tasty coffee. You'll see a few bed & breakfasts along here as...

  • Narrow steps

    Here you can see some of the narrow and steep steps you will have to navigate to be able to investigate the upper reaches of Rosh Pina, these are the steps that lead down to several good restaurants, Rafa is one that we found excellent.

  • Visit cobbled old city 3

    This is one of the most beautiful cobbled streets in upper Rosh Pina..but you can also see the "problem"...if you are coming with a car, there is very little parking space...if you can ask someone to direct you to the cemetary, there is parking there to spare, the only problem is that you have to climb 100 stairs to reach the city......

  • Visit cobbled old city 2

    Only a few years ago this was the main street in Rosh Pina, the government offices were here, just off to the left..this is also the area where you will find many of the artists studios and also some fine restaurants.

Rosh Pinna Restaurants

  • Rafa’s House Restaurant

    Babayit shel Rafa is located on a beautiful setting, among other old building of the founders, with a terrace outside giving us a great spot to enjoy our evening tea/coffee. The main building is a beautiful old stone house that turned into a restaurant in 1994. It usually gets packed with people that go there for lunch/dinner. They focus on...

  • Rafa's, excellent entrecote steak

    The atmosphere was very friendly and we felt comfortable from the first moment, no rushing here...you can see that the decoration is subdued and well made for an easy meal... I tried the Entrecote Steak and it was excellent. Everyone tried various meals, including some pasta dishes and all were well pleased. The only reason I gave a lower...

  • Always Tasty

    I have been eating there a few tims though not in my last visit there, but its time to add a tip about this one as well !Jauni is one of the relatively oldest and well known Bistro's in Rosh Pina.Lovely to have a sit outside and enjoy the quiet around while enjoying one of their good dishes.

  • Rene (Bistro, Bar, Coffee-Shop)

    This local "Bistro-Bar-Cafe" wants to cater to everyone, but they seem to satisfy none. Lacking in any decor of any type with poor seating (hurts to sit after a while) they seem to have done there best to be totally bland. A large choice of liquors and whiskey seem to be their reason for being there since they had a poor choice of beers (only 4 on...

  • Best Hummous in the Galilee

    This restaurant is not in Rosh Pinna but a 5 minute drive away. The best Hummous and salads imaginable with a very friendly atmosphere and great service. A reasonably priced meal as well. Hummous and all the salads

  • Coffee AND Chocolate!

    We really enjoyed this little cafe - not all that easy to find. It's at the top of the hill after the Rothschild Gardens, but set back and more or less hidden behind a building. The structure itself used to be a kind of stable if memory serves me; nowadays, it's turned into a hip cafe with, you guessed it, all kind of chocolate desserts (their name...

  • Doris Butcher Restaurant 2

    As I said you can have your meal, try out a selection of different cuts of meat and then order some to take home directly from the butcher counter that is an integral part of the restaurant...an excellent place to stop and get meat if you are planning a BBQ..

  • Doris Butcher Restaurant 1

    This is the inside of the Doris Butcher's Restaurant. It is very clean, open and had excellent service. No to mention that the meal was great, the meat is fresh and you can pick just about any type that you can find in a butcher shop...and you ask WHY, well because Doris is also a butcher shop, you can take home cuts of meat after you finish up...

  • You CAN'T Skip THAT one !

    In a very magical place quite hidden but if you'll ask for it you'll find this wonderful place named "Chocolata".This is an old building which was built in the late years of the 19th century by the Baron Rotchild for the first Hebrew Teacher of the first Hebrew school in the galilee. Years after that this place was turned into an orphans...

  • Amazing View

    This real lovely Bar / Cafe is located on the top of the hill in Rosh Pina. The view from its balcony is absolutely fantastic, and although i really loved the way that this bar is designedI still rather sit outside as long as the sun hasn't went down....The food is okay, lots of local stuff but nothing spectacular. Lovely music and nice friendly...

Rosh Pinna Shopping

    by Martin_S. Updated Apr 4, 2011

    2 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    A small hard to find shop in Rosh Pina, but I think it is worth the trouble.
    Meet Peter Isacowitz, the owner of the shop and the builder and player of the instruments he makes. You can see him demonstating to us an Irish Harp that he made. He also makes xylophones an didgeridoos (a wind instrument from his native South Africa with a very haunting sound). He also makes door-harps...these are a stringed instruement that you hang ON your door, the movment of the door causes steel balls to strike the strings.....

    What to buy: He suggests calling in advance because he is often away giving instruction and lessons on the musical instruments he makes.
    Hours:
    Mon-Thur 10:00-18:00
    Fri-Sat 11:00-16:00

Rosh Pinna Warnings and Dangers

  • Martin_S.'s Profile Photo

    by Martin_S. Written Jun 3, 2005

    This is a picture you will see in Rosh Pina, the main stairway leading from the lower town to the upper old town, as I said be prepared to stretch your legs... You can take your time, there are benches in several areas and once you pass this particular area the going is easier...if you are disabled, you will have to try to find parking in one of the small parking areas further up, this was built long before thought was given to disabled access.

Rosh Pinna Off The Beaten Path

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Take a walk through the history of the settlement through its cemetary...it was built on a hillside so as not to interfere with the agriculture around which the village was founded. Each time we visit we can see it climbing higher.
