3. March 1980
Tel Aviv was founded in 1909 as a suburb of Yaffo (Jaffa), but quickly developed into the most modern city in the Middle East. Tel Aviv is a vibrant city with a buzzing nightlife, but also a rich cultural scene. It is the most international city in Israel. Many embassies are located there.
Tel Aviv enjoys a close friendship with Frankfurt. The partnership enriches the cultural life of both cities, for example in the form of exhibitions and regular friendship concerts given by choirs and orchestras. A trinational youth exchange was also organised together with Eskişehir in Turkey. This has allowed young Israelis, Turks and Germans to share their views and experience.
