Old Town Christmas Market
The magnificent Christmas tree (brought from Rapla County) in the centre of Town Hall Square in Tallinn’s Old Town is the centrepoint of the market. Around the tree sits one of Europe’s most beautiful Christmas markets, which Business Insider Holland also named Europe’s most economical. Next after Tallinn are the markets in Riga and Prague.
The market opened at the end of November and the feeling of Christmas is already in the air. The market is open daily from 10.00-19.00 until 7 January. Visit Santa daily from 12.00-18.00 in his house.
As is tradition, on Christmas Eve, the mayor of Tallinn will declares Christmas peace at 12 noon in the Town Hall Square.
As in previous years, you’ll find all kinds of different gifts for everyone on your list, with everything from handicrafts to smoked meat. Have you ever tried bear meat sausages or a beaver’s tail? Both of these can be vacuum sealed to take home with you.
Wandering around the market you can also taste traditional Christmas foods like blood sausage and sauerkraut. Food can be enjoyed with different flavoured mulled wines with or without alcohol.
