WHERE: Tallinn, Estonia
WHEN: from 24 November 2023 to 07 January 2024
The Christmas markets in Tallinn are considered to be among the most beautiful in Europe.
It is no coincidence that it finished in thirteenth place in the special ranking drawn up by Best European Destinations.
Magic, charm and a fairytale atmosphere characterize Christmas in Tallinn. An event that invades the narrow streets of the elegant historic center, its period buildings, splendid architectural buildings, churches and museums.
A Christmas full of tradition, among stalls and small artisan shops offering small Estonian artistic creations. Without forgetting the most authentic flavors of Christmas in Tallin, with the best products of Estonian gastronomy. Everywhere you can breathe the delicious smell of gingerbread and glögg.
To make everything more special, a full calendar of exhibitions and cultural events in the main squares, museums and churches.
The little ones, on the other hand, will be able to admire the sparkling Christmas tree in the central square. Or, skate on the scenic Harju Hill.
The historic center and Raekoja plats are the beating heart of Christmas.
In front of the splendid Gothic Town Hall, in the center of the square, stands the majestic Christmas tree, the largest in all of Estonia. A tradition that dates back to 1441!
Beautiful and sparkling and, without a doubt, the main protagonist of Christmas, surrounded by around 60 wooden stalls.
This is the perfect place for a personal gift, or to a loved one. Here you can buy handmade wreaths, traditional Estonian sweets, honey, sheepskin rugs, small artifacts, and unique handicrafts. You will have the opportunity to attend real workshops to admire these beautiful creations live.
The markets are open every day, from 12:00 to 19:00.
Here, as elsewhere, Christmas is a moment of aggregation. Museums and Churches offer many events, day and night, for the whole family.
Do not miss the evocative concerts in the main churches of the historic center.
Musical groups, brass bands, bells and dance companies will brighten the days. In the crowded Town Hall Square the little ones will not fail to see the silhouette of Santa Claus.
The Ice Rink Uisupark is set up every year on the picturesque Harju Hill, near the St. Nicholas Church. The romantic outdoor skating rink is one of the most awaited moments for young and old.
Fun guaranteed even for beginners.
It is open every day from 19 November 2023 to 31 March 2024, from 10:00 to 22:00 (times vary on some certain days).
