If you want to see more of Tallinn, its different districts and various attractions, the first two recommendations are up your alley. If you enjoy exploring on foot – and luckily for you, Tallinn is a perfectly compact city to do so – then the third recommendation will be of interest.
1. Take a tour with Tallinn City Tour’s hop-on, hop-off buses
Start directly at the port with Tallinn Card PLUS and enjoy a free, full-day pass to Tallinn City Tour’s hop-on, hop-off buses which take you from one sight to another. To see where in the port you can buy a Tallinn Card, refer to our list of sales points.
There are three lines to choose from. Each tour takes one hour, during which you will see different districts and hear stories about Tallinn from an audio guide (available in 10 languages). After completing the one-hour bus tour, get off at Viru Square and continue on foot to discover the Old Town and its main sights and museums.
Choose which areas of Tallinn or attractions interest you the most, and let the City Tour take you there, hop off, explore and enjoy. Then, hop back on the next bus to continue the journey. You can choose to:
- Stay close to the city centre and explore more of Kalamaja, home to one of Tallinn’s top attraction – the Seaplane Harbour
- Head to Kadriorg and Pirita districts to find KUMU Art Museum, Kadriorg Palace – Kadriorg Art Museum, Maarjamäe History Centre and the Tallinn TV Tower
- Enjoy the seaside and quiet in Rocca al Mare, where you can travel back to rural Estonia at the Estonian Open Air Museum, a recreation of an 18-20th century village
You can fit at least one of Tallinn’s top museums into your day and still have time to stroll around the Old Town.
Tip: To skip the hassle at the port, buy your Tallinn Card in advance from our online shop!
