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.

“Bauhaus!”
Reviewed June 25, 2013

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.

“wonderful”
Reviewed June 24, 2013

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

“For Bauhaus architecture, tel Aviv is truly the White City”
Reviewed June 21, 2013

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 has taken its toll on this International Style architecture, there has also been a great deal of restoration. Since much of the housing consists of these five story blocks,many Tel Aviv streets have a very human scale that adds to the charm of the city. For more information and tours, go to the Bauhaus Center on Dizengoff St.

“As Bauhaus City Tel Aviv is outstanding”
Reviewed June 1, 2013

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
