On a recent visit to the Tachana, we noticed that many of the shops have been closed. Basically it consists of restaurants and expensive shops--nothing out of the ordinary and not much going on there Much more fun is Neve Tzedek right next to the Tachana.

Very cool place! Perfect combination of old and new. Although the trainstation itself is interesting it is the small shops that i liked the most. Perfect place to hang around on a good weathers day! It is though a bit hard to find depending from which direction you come. From the main street it is perfectly visible.

a pleasant place to get something to eat, and if you like fashion, go for it, but it's really not the destination it's promoted as

The tachana is a sensitive restoration of the original Turkish train station. From a variety of cobblestone walkways to patinated walls to new industrial pipes for heating and cooling, there's a beautiful blend of modern design and history. Outside of the shoe store Shoofra (which sell the best selection of Trippens in Israel and at fair prices), none of the... More

Old Turkish Railway Station that has been converted into an upscale marketplace. The buildings have that old world feel and are maintained well. The stores are mostly designer stores and art galleries, with one grocery store and a couple of coffee shops and restaurants. Most stores had a "sale" but even with 70% off, it was all beyond my budget.... More

The best place for an evening stroll after walking through the little streets of Neve Tzedek- the Vici Cristina Bar is nice for an evening drink and tapas and there seems to always be something going on in the Hatachana. Music events, Oktoberfest, Artistic events. It simply has good vibs there.

Terrific outdoor pedestrian mall. HaTachana is a converted railway station. Lots of cool shops and restaurants and people having a nice time. Don't miss this. Shops are fun to walk in and shmie around. Good time.

They have kept the feel of the old railway station and surrounding houses that have been better preserved that a lot of the restorations I have seen in Israel. There are a couple of old carriages still there, one has been made into a 3D show (20NIS) but I didn't go in. There are a number of boutique shops (and... More

100 years ago the Turk built this station along the railroad to connect Jaffa to Jerusalem. Today, fullof the young life it is one of the most loved recreation places in Tel Aviv
