HaTachana, Tel Aviv

(260+ reviews on the web)
Landmark
Once a bustling railway station on the road connecting Jerusalem to the coast, HaTachana today serves a new purpose: a pedestrian complex filled with entertainment and shopping options. Built in 1892 as one of the first railroad stations in the region, the compound remained abandoned from when Israel established statehood in 1948 until its refurbishment in the early 21st century. Admire the historic buildings, get a charming souvenir, go for drinks and a delicious meal, or catch one of the live performances often held in the complex. Make HaTachana part of your personalized Tel Aviv itinerary using our Tel Aviv tourist route planner.

  • Across the street from the Beach. Lots of nice shops and restaurants. Nice way to spend a few hours (day or night)  more »
  • Before arriving at Jaffa this old train station with its cars and still visible rais to surprise. Small shops and a few restaurants scattered throughout of spotless walkways! Have quickly made the turn but nice for a stroll.

  • Overly expensive food and shops. Not much personality. Old train tracks with not much to see. Your lives are not diminished if you miss it.  more »

  • There is a nice restaurants like Vicky Christina and its an historic place to see and learn, but not more then that.... Sometimes there is a big events in this place like the last one....purim2017...it was great!!!
  • The Tachana is a great idea, but fails to deliver. The redevelopment is very sympathetic and replaced an industrial wasteland with a beautiful development, but it's too aesthetic and expensive to be truly a destination for anyone but tourists and people with money to waste. It looks great, but when ytou look around, there's really no substance. If you're walking all the way there, continue another 500m and go to Jaffa. That would be a much more rewarding experience.
  • Nice historic place , nowadays a shopping area with some coffee shops and restaurants. Lots of parking .
  • An old rail station that was renovated and today has trendy designers shops and restaurants. Great for a sunny day, but has no roof so avoid when weather is not clear. See Google for available stores.
  • Had so much potential. Now its mostly empty.
