Sarona Market view of the Azrieli Sarona tower, Israel's tallest building.

In the late 19th century, Protestant German settlers known as Templers settled in this community in Tel Aviv. However, the group was expelled by the British in the 1930s when many began to voice support for the rise of Adolf Hitler. In 2006, 33 buildings—many over 140 years old—were restored, and now house restaurants, cafes, boutiques, and bars on a green swathe of land nestled between several high rises. Don’t miss the upscale Sarona market next door—an indoor marketplace, offering everything from European specialty goods to high-end Middle Eastern cuisine.

The old German architecture, surrounded by orange groves, palm-trees and ponds somehow fits in with the new Tel Aviv architecture:
The Azrieli Sarona tower has 33 elevators that move at 9 meters per second between 61 floors. The building is covered by 58,000 square meters of glass.
