General and Geography

Tel Aviv is a metropolis on the Mediterranean coast of Israel, which, as a cosmopolitan and very modern metropolis, occupies a special position in many respects.

The city has its origins in the southern port city of Jaffa (Yaffa), and since 1950 both parts of the city have been combined as Tel Aviv-Jaffa. While Tel Aviv itself is Jewish, the old town of Jaffa has many Arab roots and oriental influences.

Despite the generally rather fragile situation in Israel, Tel Aviv is more than ever a figurehead for joie de vivre, lightness and a touch of hip carefreeness. The popular city beach with its magnificent promenade is as much a magnet for locals and tourists from all over the world as the many stylish bars of Tel Aviv.

Moreover, the historic capital Jerusalem is only about 31 miles away and, together with the Dead Sea, offers an ideal combination opportunity in the country.

With Ben Gurion Airport in Lod, Israel’s largest airport is just a few minutes drive from the city.

When is the best time to travel to Tel Aviv?


The months of June to September often bring great heat to Tel Aviv and are therefore only recommended to a limited extent for cultural trips through Israel. With the refreshment offered by the Mediterranean the summer is nevertheless perfectly suitable for a relaxed bathing holiday.

The best time to travel in Tel Aviv is the whole period from spring to autumn, although even during the wet (but mild) winter with few restrictions the region is well suited for a trip. Our favourite months are the fringe months of May and October.

Sights in Tel Aviv


Tel Aviv-Jaffa is not a classical metropolis with hundreds of sights, but the city itself is its biggest attraction. Of course, it is a must to experience the joie de vivre on Tel Aviv’s beautiful beach. The area not far from the Hilton Hotel is ideal.

Already in the afternoon the many street cafés of the city fill up with a young, cosmopolitan audience. The “White City”, which has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 2003, is rather historic. The more than 4000 Bauhaus-style buildings are the lifework of a large number of highly gifted Jewish architects who fled Germany from National Socialism.

The old town of Jaffa with its small winding alleyways is also a must, here lure beside small studios and interesting shops for example the old church Saint Peter as well as the Al-Bahr mosque. Other attractions in Jaffa include the Clock Tower, Jaffa Light Lighthouse and Al-Saraya al-‘Atika Palace.

    Marie, 28 years old was there in March

    In March we had during the day between 22 and 34 degrees. Most of it was in the mid-20s. Absolutely warm enough for the beach and if you are not so sensitive to cold, swimming in the sea is also possible 🙂
    At night it took some getting used to and was fresh before the change to summertime- when the evening coolness came around 4.30 pm and the sun slowly disappeared.

    Weather Rating: 5 stars – Excellent

    Great travel weather, a little too fresh in the evening. During the day up to 25 degrees, more is hard to bear in Jerusalem’s old town
