A group of friends drove up to Switzerland Forest area to have a picnic. Great views of the Sea oh Galilee and the Town on Tiberias below. You can spend some time in this peaceful area and see the city view in the late evening.

only a 'forest" if you live in a desert...

We were staying in a wonderful airbnb overlooking the lake north of downtown, and I was looking for a morning walk to stretch my legs. The hike up through the residential neighborhood climbed about 300 meters to the oddly named Switzerland Forest. Given the dirty and shabby nature of the city of Tiberias, the forest was a pleasant respite of a few trees scattered over the otherwise mostly barren hillside. But the view from there was spectacular, covering much of the lake and all of the town. If you're looking for a short hike and some exercise while in Tiberias, I highly recommend this place.

Ride a bike. Take a hike. Drive through and stop along the way to admire and soak in the beautiful views of the Sea of Galilee, the Golan Heights, the City of Tiberias. Take you choice but you won't be disappointed in spending the time in the Swiss Forest. The views are amazing. There are several picnic areas. I love to drive through any time of the year but the spring is my favorite. The wildflowers blanket the hillsides.

beautiful views of the Galilee
Apr 2016 • Family
If you have a car this park is just above Tiberias and has beautiful views of the Sea of Galilee. It is accessible from the town or from a country road just to the south. There are many picnic areas and a display giving the history of the park. It is essentially empty of people during the week which makes that a good time to visit.

Beautiful view!

We learned about this place on Trip Advisor while researching Mt. Arbel. We approached the forest through Tiberius and drove all the way through on our way out of town. It was stunning! And free.

There is a memorial up there for a soldier who was killed in the Gaza War whose body was never returned.
