HaTachana, Tel Aviv

3.6
#13 of 51 in Sightseeing in Tel Aviv
Landmark Tourist Spot
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.

  • A medium place with shops and restaurants. There are some train rails (Old, non working) and there are two trains in one you can relax, and in the second you can watch video about israel rails. Really good place.
  • Historical train station of jaffa tel aviv now renovated into a hip shopping and entertainment area. Very romantic and family friendly, a nice park is near by and the beach too!
  • Very nice place with a lot of things to buy and eat. The Viky Cristina is a perfect place for a date
  • A nice lace at night for hanging out. During the summer days it's extremely hot
  • Allthough beautifully renovated and therefore worth a visit, it functions mostly as a fancy open air shopping area with a few very fancy and expensive shops. There are occasional shows, concerts and exhibitions, some very good, others a mixed bunch.
