About the Highest Observatory in the Middle EastThe Azrieli Observatory is a closed observatory, located on the 49th floor of the circular building in the Azrieli Towers, allowing you to view the immediate surroundings and on the good day, far away from Tel Aviv-Jaffa.
From here you can understand the meaning of the term "Dan block," since from a height of 187 meters you see the huge region called "Gush Dan" and know that there is no bigger region in Israel, although in international terms it is small and tiny ...
Nevertheless, the view of Tel Aviv and its satellite cities is seen from Bat Yam, Holon and Rishon Letzion in the south, to Herzliya, Netanya and the chimneys of Hadera in the north, Ben-Gurion Airport, Lod and Modi'in in the east and the sea in the west. On a good day, one can see as far as the south Ashdod port, and the eastern hills of Jersualem.
If you are debating in winter whether to go to the observatory, especially on a rainy day or even on a stormy day, consider still going up to the observatory. First, the place is closed and protected from rain and cold. Second, the view from up here inthe stormy city, is exciting. You will feel as if you are standing in the midst of the thunderstorm itself, and between us - when was the last time you saw thunder from up close?
For tourists, it is worth noting that the place is not an observatory like abroad, although it can be viewed as an observatory, the binoculars that were once there were removed long ago, since now it house many events. It is always better to check in advance if a visit is possible.
