Sandwiched between Tel Aviv’s hipster Florentin district and the blossoming Noga neighborhood, the American-German Colony is an enchanting spot resting south of the city, brimming with coffee shops, artistic spaces, restaurants and upmarket boutiques. The neighborhood’s rich history dates back to 1866 when a group of 150 Christain Americans from Maine came to settle in Palestine. They dispersed not long after their arrival, leaving much of the land open to purchase by the German Templars. Mere step from Jaffa, and a stretch of shimmering beaches, this beautiful part of town teems with a bounty of New England style architecture, cobblestone streets and even a Neo-Gothic church built by the German Templars over a century ago. Blending urban chic with local history, the American-Germany Colony is a must-visit spot in Tel Aviv.
