The Cave of Elijah is sacred to Jews, Christians and Muslims and is enshrined by a domed chapel with an altar directly overhead. The German Colony, a historic area of town that was designed and built by German Templar Knights in the 19th century, is now home to trendy eateries and cafes. The Haifa National Museum of Science features a variety of interactive displays like the Hall of Mirrors and the Hall of Darkness, where holographic images of the guests are produced on the wall.
