Tallinn’s Medieval Old Town takes on an especially magical quality in winter as a fresh powdering of snow covers its rooftops, and candles fill its cobblestone lanes with a flickering glow.
Though the nights may be dark, winter is when you’ll find Tallinn at its most enchanting. From skating at the Old Town’s outdoor ice rink to enjoying a cup of mulled wine in a cozy café – every day brings new delights!
December brings high spirits and festive moods to Tallinn’s medieval churches, shops and of course, the world-famous Christmas Market at the Town Hall square. Regardless of whether its snowing or reminiscent of autumnal temperatures, the market is full of life, selling everything from knitwear to traditional Estonian Christmas food.
From as early as November, visitors can come and make Christmas wishes under the lush Christmas tree towering in Town Hall square. The Christmas tree of Tallinn always has a story to tell, because it is chosen each year through a contest that sees spruce trees all over Estonia competing for the honor. The tree will be lit with candles on the first advent.
Come and experience Tallinn’s winter full of magic!
Despite this being the darkest time of the year, Tallinn is glowing with warmth, light and buzzes with positive energy. Every evening offers new opportunities to take part in enchanting winter events in the city’s cinemas, concert and theater halls, churches, pubs and nightclubs.
