Do you want to visit impressive attractions? You’re looking for the most famous shopping miles or enchanting boutiques for the perfect shopping trip? Or you’re interested in fascinating buildings of art and culture? We’ve compiled a selection for you.

  • Hatachana

    Happening venue
    There's a prevailing trend in Tel Aviv to give historic squares and buildings a new lease of life, and turn them into modern culture and leisure venues. The former Hatachana railway station is no exception. Within a short space of time, this has become the city's place to be. You can stroll around the boutiques, admire arts and crafts and treat yourself to a break in one of the cosy restaurants and bars. In the summer, the 5500 m2 venue hosts a range of different events and festivals.

  • Flea market

    Souvenirs and bric-a-brac
    Tiny shops full of bric-a-brac, souvenirs, books, glasswork, lamps and everything else the happy shopper could desire. And interspersed amongst them, tiny cafés and restaurants that transform at sunset into hip bars and nightclubs – the flea market of Old Jaffa is a must!

  • Wishing Bridge

    Signs of the zodiac
    On top of the hill of Old Jaffa is a bridge with an unusual railing that is decorated with all the signs of the zodiac – the Wishing Bridge of Old Jaffa. According to the sign, "An ancient legend holds that anyone boarding the bridge, holds its zodiac sign and looks at the sea – their wish will come true.” Better try it and see!

  • White City

    Architecture
    The White City is a collection of over 4000 buildings, most in the Bauhaus and international styles. They were built mostly by Jews of German origin who fled here after the rise of the National Socialists in Germany in 1933. The White City was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2003, and in 2009 around 1000 buildings were put under a preservation order.
  • Real Estate

    King of the houses
    He is the real estate king of the popular bohemian district of Neve Tzedek. Oren Katz knows every last detail of the century-old history of this area – and he also always knows exactly which houses are currently available to buy or rent. «In recent years, there has been a growing interest in property in Tel Aviv, especially in our area.» explains the charismatic estate agent, who has been seeking and finding since 1994.

  • Namal Hafen

    Entertainment mile
    Namal, as it is called in Hebrew, is Tel Aviv's old harbour and is located in the north of the city. Anyone expecting a shipping hub full of large container ships couldn't be more wrong. Picture a large entertainment mile and this may well be closer to the truth. By day, the long wooden promenade is popular with families strolling in front of the many trendy restaurants, cafés, bars and happening stores. By night, however, locals and tourists come together to party into the early hours.

  • Roni Kantor

    Vintage
    Designer Roni Kantor opened her unique clothes shop in a building that dates back to 1910. Her style? Old clothes given a new look. In other words: vintage finds altered to suit the Tel Aviv fashion spring of today. The shop is really cosy, full of flea market treasures, and requires its customers to spend lots and lots of time browsing and trying things on. And drinking coffee.

  • Ahava

    Cosmetics from the sea
    Ahava is the name of a well-known Israeli cosmetics line whose products are made using minerals from the Dead Sea. Ahava skin, body and hair products are «From the most invigorating spa in the world – the Dead Sea» (as the advertisements say). There are also Ahava stores in London, Berlin and Singapore – as well as several in Tel Aviv, of course. One particularly charming example is the one in the Hatachana Complex, named after the city’s old railway station.

    Sarona was once the largest German settlement during Temple Society times. Tel Aviv made it its mission to restore this historic piece of heritage. The result is a unique centre for culture and leisure, as well as new commercial space for exclusive boutiques and chic restaurants. Every visitor finds Sarona's nostalgic charm enchanting – a wonderful place, of which the founders deserve to be proud.

LOCAL TIP

The Par Derriere is a smaller, cozy wine bar with a super-nice garden. Here is Bossa Nova, lounge or jazz music played. There is also a large selection of wines and tapas. For a chilly evening in Tel Aviv, I always like to go there.

If you’d like to go to a special fish restaurant, then I recommend the Montefiore Sheva 7. The menu combinations are brilliant, fresh and simply delicious! And Emily at the restaurant is simply charming.
