Fodor's Review

On the edge of Neveh Tzedek, this Turkish-era train station is where travelers once embarked to Jerusalem on the first piece of railroad in the Middle East. Even Theodor Herzl, founder of modern Zionism, passed through here. Dubbed HaTachana, Hebrew for "The Station," it recently reopened to the public after a NIS 100 million renovation. Situated on 49 acres, the complex includes 22 different buildings, among them the former station that now houses art exhibits. A pair

of restored train cars tells the story of the station's days as a major travel hub in the region. You'll also find restaurants, cafés, and boutiques peddling handcrafted jewelry and homegrown designer clothes. At the entrance is a tourist information stand.
