Fifteen Kilometers south of Haifa, nestled in the heart of the Carmel Forest is the magical artist’s village of Ein Hod. Quaint, windy streets, incredible lookout points, countless art galleries, most in the houses of residents are really what make Ein Hod so incredibly original.
A large proportion of the 500 residents of Ein Hod are artists; be they painters, potters, sculptors, writers, poets or playwrights. Many of the artists open their houses to the public (especially during the summer) to show off their creations. Workshops and educational activities are also put on by residents for visitors who want to take things a step further.
Two notable galleries can be found in the center of the village; the community gallery where many residents display their work and the Janco-Dada Museum which showcases the works of Marcel Janco who founded Ein Hod. Audible arts are also included in the village with the Gertrud Kraus House sponsoring biweekly chamber music concerts and guest lecturers as well as musical entertainment in the amphitheatre during the summer months. In addition, free outdoor jazz concerts are hosted in the village’s central square every Saturday.

Hello reader. My name is Charlotte Noris and I am sure that you will definitely enjoy my blog. Do you know why? All because on the pages you will see bright and colorful photos, as well as useful information. My husband and I are freelancers, so we can travel at any time of the year.
For myself, I most often plan tours in advance, but it also happens that the trip turns out to be spontaneous when I see an interesting place and a nice price. At the age of 35, I have visited more than 30 countries and do not plan to stop there. I want to visit all continents and the most secret corners of our planet.
