The capital's most glorious Christmas tree will tower over Town Hall Square. In 1441, the first known public Christmas tree in Europe was put up in this exact spot. The candles will be ceremoniously lit on the first Advent, 29 November.
Gorgeous and special trees can be found all over the city, from museums to town squares. The Tallinn Tourist Information Centre has been decorated by the Estonian Reed Crafting Team. They also made the world's biggest reed crown, making it into the Guinness World Records this year.
Grab a hot drink from a nice café, stroll along the medieval streets and peek into the courtyards and display windows: close to 70 lighting designs, dozens of nativity scenes and other decorations will be spread around the Old Town and city centre. Many windows have actually become concert and dance stages or art galleries.
Useful information! We can't promise snow, but you'll be able to skate in the Old Town in any weather. The ice-skating rink opens its doors as soon as the end of November.
