This is a lovely renovated park with buildings from the early 20th century reconstructed and beautifully restored to their Eduardian charm.

An amazing and peaceful enclave in a very busy and noisy city. Took 1.5 hour free tour in English today. Learned history that I never knew about Tel Aviv!

I did a guided live-streamed tour of the Templer Colony in Sarona with Tomar from Heygo. Sarona is a neighborhood of Tel Aviv, Israel which started as a German Templer Colony in Palestine in 1871.
By 1889, over two hundreds people lived in Sarona and there were 41 homes, a communal hall, a winery, workshops, barns and sheds.
The Sarona colonists brought modern farming tools and practices and they focused on crops and products they could readily sell. The water pump can still be seen there today.
The area is now a popular shopping district, with museums focusing on its history history, and IDF complexes. Some of the houses earmarked for preservation are: Original Community House, Old Lämmle House, Glenk House, The New Community House, Friedrich Häring House, New School and Community Complex and Immanuel Steller House.

The original Sarona Templer Clock is now on display in the Sarona Museum, accessible via the visitor’s center. A new carillon clock adorns the facade of one house.
We also saw the old wooden bowling alley which provided recreation long ago. We also saw grapefruit trees and Tomar told us that there is an Oktoberfest starting here the next day after the tour.

The gardens are beautiful and peaceful Sarona Market, recently revamped is a pleasure to visit - I was there before lunch and it was a pleasure to see all the foods in the different outlets beautifully arranged, awaiting their lunchtime clients

Very interesting learning about the history from the man in tourist information. Worth a visit to Sarona and a visit to this information centre . Only sorry we could not get back for a detailed tour. When walking round here it’s like an oasis in the middle of all the traffic and high rise building .The market is another experience not to be missed.

Parking has become an issue in Tel Aviv so we found that the underground parking lot of Sarona takes you right into the heart of the market for a quick meal and reasonable price with minimal walking.

Fascinating history of settlement which is now within the modern day Tel Aviv area by a German sect called the Templers. Amazing to see and learn how they lived. There is a free tour on Fridays and Tuesdays at 11 am. No reservations required. Well worth the time and effort.

Founded by German Templars 1871, this unique site had amazing changes. It was the first Hebrew city, then British Military Base and then the headquarters of both Israeli Army and the Mossad. Now one of Tel Aviv's most popular recreation sites.

Beautiful park and boutique shopping utilizing the historic buildings of an early German Colony in Tel Aviv. Historic information on each building makes strolling through this peaceful oasis in bustling Tel Aviv interesting and enjoyable.

Sarona is a reconstructed German settlement with many interesting places to see, eat and shop. There's a nice whiskey distillery and museum, many cafes, bakeries and restaurants, boutique local production shops and even few fashion stores. The center operates in Saturdays.
