Description: Nimrod’s Castle, located at the foot of Mt. Hermon, is the largest castle in Israel that dates back to the Middle Ages. The castle was built at a height of 760 meters above sea level, is surrounded by steep cliffs, and looms above a very strategic spot on the road from the Hula Valley to the Golan and onwards to Syria. Beautiful views of northern Israel can be seen from every tower in the castle.
A visit to the castle is exciting, and includes learning stories about wars, conquering armies, and legends about giants. You’re welcome to walk among the ruins, see the breathtaking views in all directions, and experience history from up close.
