A must see attraction. Take a guided tour (ask at your hotel) and you will get to know the secrets of the first Israeli city. Small streets beautiful buildings and plenty of stories.

Walk around the central parts of Tel Aviv and especially along Rotschild street. The White City refers to a collection of over 4,000 Bauhaus style buildings built in Tel Aviv from the 1930s by German Jewish architects who fled from from the Nazis. Tel Aviv has the largest number of buildings in this style of any city in the world.

many complain about the fact that bauhaus buildings should be renovated and are not in great shape. Instead, I found lovely the sense of decadence that is transmitted by the buildings, it's like being in a bauhaus la havana at some times... definitely great atmosphere

One of the pleasures of wandering the streets of Tel Aviv, particularly around either Dizengoff, or Rothschild Sts., is experiencing the variety and quality of Bauhaus-style architecture in the city. Some of the earlier structures, from the 1930's, were actually built to be like "a kibbutz in the city,", that is, a small community with many essential services. Although time... More

for the last 20 years TA is developing especially the wonderful examples of Bauhaus buildings in an impressing way. 40 years ago most of them were damaged by the salty and traffic polluted air, now a great part is already renovated and it is a joy to walk through the City and admire the different buildings

How did this get World Heritage standing? Very average, lots of worn, old buildings were even the architecture really isn't that impressive. We drove by, not even worth hunting for parking place to walk around.

Just like nice things to look at, pass the time? Go there. Like beautiful buildings? Walk there. Like a great variety of architectural styles, where each house "must" differ from the next one?‏‏‏‏ This is the place. Enjoy Bauhaus? Here it is.

Tel Aviv is great for walking around and site seeing. Visit Rothschild Boulevard and look up - all of the renovated buildings are beautiful. Lots of great little cafes and restaurants - also on the side streets. Or rent a city bike and tour on the bike trails.
