Visit our world-class attractions such as Masada UNESCO Heritage site and Tel Arad National Park.

Discover our numerous hiking trails, which are within a minute’s walk from the City Centre, with its ancient caves, fortresses and reservoirs.

Different trails are available for hiking, bicycle riding or jeep touring.

Bike or simply walk along our promenade, which invites you to take a breath and relax with the amazing view at Moav Lookout.

The city’s Artists’ Quarter includes one of a kind galleries and workshops. There you can talk to the artists about their work, and buy an original gift.

Arad is open for business. We are committed to continuing to find new ways to maximize the potential of this great community. We welcome visitors and new residents. We are proud of what we have built and where we live and I am honoured to be Mayor of our community.
