Reviewed 19 March 2012

Having arrived Friday night, we headed for the English speaking tour of the White City @ 11am on Saturday (46 Rothschild). A great introduction to Tel Aviv. The old pictures of the sand dunes which are now modern Tel Aviv, and the leisurely stroll under the tree lined boulevard made a nice contrast.. Here's what I learned about the Bauhaus movement, in no particular order.  Founded in Europe by Gropious, it was a socialist movement to provide housing for the workers, by making housing simpler, less expensive.  The irony is that Bauhaus apts and bldgs are exorbitantly expensive in TLV (Tel Aviv) now.  Bauhaus bldgs are made of concrete, not symmetrical, with no designs.  They were built on stilts to allow cool air to circulate and with balconies to sit on during brutally hit summers.  With the advent of a/c, bldgs often had no balconies.  What I learned is that I'm not particularly fond of Bauhaus design.

Tel Aviv was partly built according to Bauhaus and International style. Many buildings have renovated and it's value has raised so it makes the area looks better then it was.
You can walk on the streets and see the buildings, but it's highly recommended that you use either a guided tour (check the Bauhaus Center in Tel Aviv site) or at least check a site i attach here, it's the White City site so you can use it and map your own tour according to the information written there, it's cheaper :)
When you look at the site, click on "tourism" and watch "tour routs" next to it on the left side. There you'll see the name of the streets (3 main ones) and look at each building and by that choose your own personal trip. it's a very nice walk, specially if you do it in winter or other cool days.
