HaTachana, Tel Aviv

(280+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • We were fortunate to have a guide well versed in the early history of Tel AViv. The railway to Jerusalem no longer exists.  more »
  • I always try to visit this outdoor mall whenever we are in Tel Aviv. There are restaurants, bars, and shops.  more »

  • A nice lace at night for hanging out. During the summer days it's extremely hot
  • The old train station which was transformed into a shopping area that includes a few boutique stores, restaurants and occasionally a crafts fair where local artists sell their merchandise. Clean, and there's activity for children. Also, there's a parking lot nearby and lots of other things to do: the beach, a garden with a playground, and the IDF history museum.
  • 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!!!
  • Authentic and beautiful but does not offer many options
  • 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.
