Beersheba Things to Do

  • Israeli Air Force Museum

    To the north of the city, at Hatzerim Air Base, there is one of the most famous aircraft museums in the world: The Israeli Air Force museum. Here, preserved by the dry desert air, are aircraft from Israel's entire history. And that history is an eventful one. Not only has the IAF operated planes from nearly every major Western power, it has also...

  • Beer Sheva's Shuk "Bedouin shuk"

    The term "shuk" translates into "market". The Beer Sheva Shuk is a traditional mid-eastern market. It is a real pleasure to see it. It is a real working market. Many Beer Shevans rely on the shuk.

    Open every day except Saturday, 8.00 am to 5.00 pm (Fridays until 1.00 pm).A collection of over 140 aircraft.

We were shown around the indoor part of the museum by a girl soldier and then she took us to see some...

In 19th-century representations, one sees grooves in the stones, made by the ropes of the...

  • Abraam's well

    Not much to do in Beersheba, though you can go to the flea beduin market or visit Abraam's well. However with a little effort you can rent a car from avis and go around travelling! everything is very close in Israel, and some neighbouring cities are marvelous.

  • Lost in Space

    Go into any kindergarten and ask the kids what they want to be when they grow up. At least one will say “I want to be an astronaut.” One boy who grew up in Beersheva actually became one. That boy was Ilan Ramon, who flew into space on the Columbia Space Shuttle on January 16, 2003 and spent a total of 15 days, 22 hours and 20 minutes there. On...

  • A Modest Monument

    Walking down the streets of Israeli cities, you will not encounter colossal bronzes of emperors on horseback or towering statues of the country’s founding fathers. In fact, you will not see much figurative art at all in public places. Municipal by-laws, particularly in Jerusalem, have always taken religious sensitivities into consideration. “You...

  • Onward Jewish Soldier

    In Flanders Fields the poppies grow; between the crosses row on row. Lines of poetry from my school days came back to me as I wandered among the graves in the Beersheva war cemetery, the resting place of 1,239 British and Australian soldiers who died in World War I (1914-1919). Even if you are not a great fan of cemeteries, the Commonwealth...

  • Ben Gurion University beer sheva

Beersheba Restaurants

  • Excellent service and food at The...

    Sitting on the corner of Histadrut street just off Smilanski, the exterior is not imposing, but you walk up a few steps at the entrance and find yourself presented with a glass of wine before you are seated. The interior is almost pure white, the walls, drapes, tables and chairs, with touches of color here and there, a very relaxing atmosphere with...

    Revivo is a swarma bar (meat, usually lamb, but can also be chicken), cooked on a spit, cut into small pieces and then stuffed into flat (pita) bread along with salad, gravy and other spices...But this was special because as soon as our friend (here seen with Tal and Zohara) saw this sign she started jumping and saying "Revivo & Turkey"...I believe...

  • Business lunch at Avazi, till 6pm

    Avazi is what is called a "shipudiah" in Hebrew here in Israel. It began by serving meals on steel sticks braized over an open fire (not sure what you call these types of steel sticks in English). Today it is a chain of restaurants found in many parts of Israel and serves up a decent and simple meal for an acceptable price.The restaurants...

  • Arabica's excellent service

    The decor is done in "modern", which means that the air conditioning ducts are on the walls instead of in the walls, but they ARE painted black. They did have light and enjoyable background music, not intrusive. The food was presented in a very nice manner and the protions were satisfying. The SERVICE is where we found this restaurant to be one of...

    BarBaSaba Pub, Beer-Sheva, Israel 2 more images

    by Martin_S. Written Aug 19, 2013

    You might ask is this pub the type of place you would let your daughter go...NO.
    No I would not let her go there, I took her myself, much better if you have the right company don't you think....^O^
    This enjoyable pub is located in the back garden of the Saba Gepetto restaurant. They have taken a "wasted space" and turned it into a small comfortable garden pub.
    They also have 40 beers on TAP, which is unusual for Israel, and they include some goodies from Belgium.
    They also serve up some of the finger foods from the Saba Gepetto restaurant which adjoins them. I have include some photos that I found on the internet.
    Oh and one more thing, don't forget to use the bathroom while you are there, even if you don't really need to, nuff said.

    Dress Code: Relaxed atmosphere, shorts and sandals are fine, or a tie if you are feeling stuffy.

    Opening hours: Sun-Thurs and Saturday, 12:00-16:00 and 21:00 - 01:30

    We took the train from Tel Aviv to Be`er Sheva. It was a smooth ride in an air conditioned carriage. The train has a stop at the Be`er Sheva university in the Northern edge of the city and thereafter enters the town following a half circle track to the end of the line at the Main Station Be`er Sheva Merkaz. Ticket prices were half what I pay for...

Beersheba Warnings and Dangers

  • Flood in Nahal BeerSheva

    BeerSheva, like all other towns in the desert are subjected to floods whenever it decides to rain (not often enough to grow crops properly, but often enough to cause damage). Here you can see the flood water raging through Nahal BeerSheva which divides the town of BeerSheva. This is a normally DRY riverbed. In the second and third pictures you can...

Beersheba Favorites

  • Collectors Car

    Spotted this old Peugeot on the streets of Beer Sheva, it must be a collectors edition by now. If anyone can identify the model and year it would be appreciated. I am not knowledgeable about cars, but even I can appreciate a car that has a sense of self.

  • All's Well That Ends Well

    When God made the world and distributed resources like water, Beersheva must have been playing hookey. Rainfall in this city averages about 11 days a year. When rain does fall, it comes down in buckets, and the dry stream beds, known as wadis, turn within hours into raging rivers. These rivers are short-lived. They vanish almost as abruptly as they...
