I am a licensed USA Architect and world traveler. I did not have high expectations for Tel Aviv architecture as the city was founded in 1909 and then consisted entirely of sand dunes. (For reference, my favorite cities for architecture are Barcelona, Spain and Florence, Italy).

I was pleasantly surprised by the proliferation of extremely high quality restored Bauhaus structures throughout Tel Aviv. I cheated and took a TouristIsrael.com live architecture 2-hour tour with guide, that was excellent and economical.

The City of Tel Aviv has strict renovation guidelines that ensure all renovated structures are restored to their precise original condition, resulting in many beautiful Bauhaus era buildings. I can see why it is a UNESCO heritage site. Highly recommended - take a walking tour if you can.

Most of the houses were built in the 1920-30-s years by german architects. Not all are white today but still you have a good impression, why is it UNESCO protected area. On a lot of houses you will find a little note - who built it, for whom, what was it former and what it is today. You can learn a lot from the history.

Tel Aviv is known for many things and attractions, cultural, culinary, innovation and more - yet in it's heart the 'white city's a wonderful place to just walk around and see all the beautiful buildings renovated and preserved to show the beautiful architectural style over 100 years from Central Europe. No wonder it was recognized as an UNESCO preserved site - recommended...

Wasting of time, buildings are not impressive; basically its a small area with grey buildings. You can find that in any city, I believe.

As a recently created city, its architecture is also different and even unique. Bauhaus architectured buildings are sprinkled at different corners and points in the city. Maybe this is the only attraction for me as a traveler rather than seeing 'modern' buildings, beaches and so on. Worth to see !
