HOW TO GET THERE
Getting to Haifa
Haifa International Airport is not your destination unfortunately. You will arrive to the Ben-Gurion (BGN) Airport in LOD, near Tel-Aviv. Thus your tickets and itinerary will specify TLV as your destination. Haifa is only 100 Km. from the airport. Walking to Haifa from the Airport is possible but not recommended at the occasion of the Workshop. Rather than walking we may suggest:
In any case, although you will manage by yourself, as there are very few languages not spoken in Israel, do not hesitate to contact us for any additional information.
