Tel Aviv: The White City

Sun setting over the Mediterranean and "White City" skyline.
Sun setting over the Mediterranean and "White City" skyline.

The so-called “White City” in central Tel Aviv, Israel, is home to the largest concentration of Bauhaus buildings and a UNESCO World Cultural Heritage Site.

The Bauhaus style (also referred to as Modern or International style) appeared in Tel Aviv from the 1930s–50s when Jewish architects fled Europe for Israel.

You can enjoy 4,000+ Bauhaus buildings as you stroll Tel Aviv, particularly in the streets around Rothschild Blvd. and in the heart of the city between Allenby St. in the south and Ben Gurion Blvd. (near Tel Aviv City Hall) in the north. Tel Aviv is made for walking and biking; there’s a 62-mile network of bike paths. Take a free Bauhaus walking tour from the city tourist office, Bauhaus Center Gallery.

The Cinema Hotel near Dizenhoff Square in the heart of Tel Aviv is constructed in an original Bauhaus-style building and was one of the first movie theaters in Tel Aviv. The building was recently restored and renovated to become a boutique hotel.

You’ll notice some of the original projectors, movie posters and theater chairs scattered around. Classic movies are screened in the hotel lobby – and popcorn is served to complete the nostalgic atmosphere.
