Tel Aviv’s Bauhaus Buildings
At the heart of Tel Aviv-Jaffa is a cluster of some 4,000 buildings built in the Bauhaus or International Style, an architectural imprint of the many German Jewish architects who settled here in the years before World War II. Preserved as a UNESCO World Heritage Site and dubbed “The White City,” these buildings—defined by sleek geometric edges and clean white facades—can be explored via walking tours, dedicated museums, and even shopping opportunities. The city is packed with information and tours on its Bauhaus heritage. Three of the best are listed below.
