01 GINGERBREAD ART
The annual Tallinn Gingerbread Mania exhibit is a sure sign that Christmas is just around the corner. This year’s exhibit is called the Toy Museum. The exhibit runs from 18 December to 8 January at the Tallinn Design and Architecture Gallery (Pärnu mnt 6).
02 TAKE TO THE SLOPES!
Tallinn’s best tobogganing hill is without a doubt the long steep hill at the Song Festival Grounds. When there is lots of snow, part of the hill is also turned into a snowboard park with a lift.
03 GREEN CHRISTMAS ROCK
Rakvere will rock on 27 December at the Green Christmas event, which has been organized since 1996! The Christmas-themed rock festival brings together the best of the current Estonian bands. Find out more information on Facebook.
04 CHRISTMAS CITY TARTU
The Tartu Christmas Market runs from 5-7 December at the convention centre (Kreutzwaldi 60). Handicrafts, toys, clothes, jewellery, books, and much more will be available for sale. The Tartu Town Hall Square Christmas Market changes the city into a Christmas city from 30 November to 24 December.
05 ICE SKATING CHARM
In the heart of the Old Town is the Harju Street Skating rink. The best time to come is after dark and skate on the illuminated rink among the medieval buildings. Skates can be rented on-site. The rink is open from 10.00-22.00 daily.
