More About Rothchild Boulevard

Originally named ‘the street of the people’ and later renamed after Baron Edmond James de Rothschild of the French Rothschild banking dynasty; Rothschild Boulevard was one of the first streets to be built in Tel Aviv. Since it is beginning at the southwestern edge of Neve Tzedek and running north through the White City of Tel Aviv to the Habima Theater, surely is one of the most expensive streets in the city and a top tourist attraction.

The beautifully restored Bauhaus buildings that line the avenue led Rothschild Boulevard to become a UNESCO World Heritage Site. So today they house luxury residences; restaurants; cafés; and creative firms. Also, towering skyscrapers stand shoulder-to-shoulder with traditional Bauhaus buildings. So they create an interesting dichotomy that adds to the atmosphere of the city.

Also, other historically significant buildings on the boulevard that are worth visiting are the Fredric Mann Auditorium; the home of the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra; and Israel’s national theater; the Habima Theater. 

Rothschild Boulevard: Just Strolling Along is an Experience

Walking along Rothschild Boulevard is an experience not to be missed when visiting Tel Aviv.
