Explore a fairy tale Christmas in Tallinn

 Friday, November 25, 2022 


Tallinn Christmas Market is all set to open its stage and sales kiosks this year, for us to experience the Christmas-spirited fairy tale world for as long as possible. The fluffy Christmas tree, a representation of Christmas, has been placed in the Town Hall Square prior to time. Everyone enjoys the cosy atmosphere, amidst the historic setting, buildings that are more than 50 years old, and long-standing customs of the Tallinn Christmas Market.

Tallinn Christmas Market has recently earned more recognition in international media – frequently being voted as one of the best among the tens of thousands of Christmas markets.

Take a splendid winter vacation to picturesque Tallinn, where the Old Town is turned into a bustling market area. Stay at the elegant Old Town hotel and explore the superb restaurants, attractive festive ambiance, and seasonal entertainment. After visiting the town’s Christmas Market, Tallinn’s vibrant city offers a variety of additional holiday activities too. Tallinn has a wide range of intriguing year-round activities in addition to customary winter events.

Experience the city’s magical Christmas feeling, from November 25, till January 8, 2023.

Participate in at least one of Tallinn’s cultural events
Christmas is first and foremost a time for your loved ones throughout the hectic holiday season. What could be better than stepping out of your regular routines with your significant other, touring one of the city’s many museums, enjoying a beautiful performance, or learning about new exhibits?

Tallinn has a rich cultural life, and many museums and attractions are providing special events over the holiday season. Give your loved ones the unique Tallinn Card, which includes free admission to more than 40 of Tallinn’s top museums and attractions, access to the city’s public transportation system, and a host of additional perks.

Stroll through the Christmas illuminated lanes of Tallinn old towns
Tallinn Old Town is unique, and not just in Estonian terms. The charming city centre is surrounded by a mediaeval defence wall, and the narrow lanes are adorned with architectural treasures from the 13th to the 16th centuries. The Old Town transforms into a lovely place in the winter, with the most magnificent Christmas tree in the city shines on Town Hall Square, cosy stores and galleries sell handcrafted, genuine goods, and shop windows feature art installations or even performances.Skaters may be seen skating on Harju Hill, while the aroma of warm glögg and gingerbread fills the air.

Visit the Tallinn viewpoints
With the famous quotation that is written on the wall, “the times we had,” the Kohtuotsa Viewing Platform is one of the most interesting places in Tallinn. Danish King Garden and Patkuli Viewing Platform make up the other two. From here, you may fly over Tallinn’s vibrant rooftops and explore the city. The Danish Garden, on the other hand, is more of a park with antique statues and sculptures than it is a viewing platform. At least one of these activities should be on your list of things to do in Tallinn during the winter, as the city appears even more beautiful with a light dusting of frost. Snow would be even better!

Be a part of a Tallinn city tour
Much of the Tallinn remains undiscovered – even for those who think they know Tallinn inside and out. Or perhaps the contrary is true—you have little knowledge of the various areas of the city? On city excursions, you’ll find places you didn’t know existed, explore well-known locations in new ways, and learn a lot of interesting new things. There are many activities available over the Christmas season, including exciting travels back in time to the Middle Ages, lantern tours, tales of animals in the city, supper walks, and more.

A perfect Christmas gift idea would be to purchase Estonian arts and crafts from Tallinn!
Tallinn Old Town is dotted with a large number of little craft and design stores that sell genuine Estonian products. In certain workshops, you can actually watch the masterpieces being crafted by hand in progress, they are that authentic! Visit St. Catherine’s Guild, the Master’s courtyard, the Estonian Shop, the Estonian Handicraft House, or Kaarmann’s Shop — on the weekends, a lot of fascinating things take place here! Make the gift yourself if you want to give yourself or your loved ones something truly special. A variety of locations offer classes on topics including crafting Christmas cards and decorating gingerbread cookies. The city has a number of other events, including the Christmas Market in Town Hall Square, the Christmas sales of local artists, craftspeople, and designers, and poignant charity functions.

Try ice skating
One of the most enchanting winter activities in Tallinn is ice skating. You can go to the temporary skating rink in Tallinn’s Old Town. Beginning in early December, it opens and closes near the end of March. This unusual ice rink on Harju Street near to the venerable St. Nicholas Church is a great place to make memories from a storybook.
