Tel Aviv has one of the world's most significant clusters of Bauhaus buildings. International Style, commonly known as Bauhaus, is mainly known for its architectural output. However, Bauhaus was a design school that branched out into many areas. Most of the center of Tel Aviv is built in Bauhaus style. Tel Aviv has been listed as a World Heritage site by UNESCO. Anyone interested in architecture or design will love this walk.

We booked this walk for our 1st morning in Tel Aviv. It starts from the Bauhaus Centre and shop in Dizengoff Street on Fridays and Saturdays. I knew very little about Bauhaus but this walk also introduced us to the history of Tel Aviv. We took the 2 hour walk with was easy but enough. I was surprised at the many buildings that I just walked past had a Bauhaus origin. The guide described the architecture and Tel Aviv context of the buildings. A great introduction to the city.

Great morning walk to view a couple of the 40.000 white bouwhaus/ international buildings in Tel Aviv. The details gives you a nice perpective of the new building principles witch reflex the spirit of the age.

Great walking tour. Very knowledgeable guide. Even though we have visited Tel Aviv many times, this tour gave us a new perspective on the architecture and history of the city. Easy flat walk.

Designating Telaviv a Unesco World heritage site, purely on the strength of its Bauhaus architecture is at best questionable – in fact one may easily be led to believe that undue influence came to bear.
Bauhaus was a medieval term used to describe a temporary dwelling supporting the construction of what was by default a much finer building - a cathedral for example. This understanding effectively sums it up. You see, softening an international styled concrete structure with a few curves doesn’t warrant the crossing of oceans to marvel at architectural ingenuity, particularly when most other cities have so much more to offer in droves. Having today spent a two hour tour examining the various structures attributable to Bauhaus, I’d say that a handful were interesting - 3 Yael St for example and perhaps the Dizengoff Circle in its heyday -the later now most unfortunately desecration by the construction of an elevated walkway crowned with that ridiculous fairground like fountain. Most of the examples I saw were also in a sorry state of repair – Obviously the Israelis don’t themselves believe the hype; why should we? Upon reflection I wouldn’t cross oceans to bear witness – wouldn’t cross the street to be honest. 2 out of 10… mainly because the weather was nice.

In every big city it takes an expert to direct you to the highlights, Tel Aviv is no exception. Had the reviewer selected my walking tour, I dare to say that he would have applauded UNESCO's decision to designate the White City of Tel Aviv a World Heritage site. Alas, he chose differently, and accidentally wrote his review on my TripAdvisor page. "White City? Where?" is a common reaction of the ordinary passerby. Even the largest concentration of International Style buildings in the world needs to be pinpointed, as the restored buildings stand amongst the dilapidated ones. You have to sift the wheat from the chaff to get the whole picture. On my site, I elaborate about my walking tour and its scope.

Learned a great deal about Bauhaus and had the opportunity to see many
areas of Tel Aviv. The hours went by quickly. Yigal was an impressive guide
and a lovely person. I highly recommend his tour.

My husband and I discovered Yigal Gawze and his tour through a friend, and the three hours we spent with him were among our most memorable in Tel Aviv. Yigal is an architectural photographer, and his gentle manner masks an encyclopedic knowledge of not just Tel Aviv's distinctive architecture, but how that architecture fits in with the social history of the country. He can talk politics, art and people and really gave us a new, broader understanding of the city and the style--I felt as if I was taking an amazing college course from an entertaining and erudite professor--except without the tuition. I highly recommend taking a walk with Yigal to see Tel Aviv through new eyes.

Interesting architecture. Better to walk along Rothschild blvd as there is more to see here including independence hall.
