Time to visit Tallinn Christmas Market

Get into the festive spirit and visit the fairytale Christmas Market in Tallinn, recommended by Forbes, as well as your Estonian business partners.

Tallinn Christmas Market, recommended to visit by Forbes, has been named “The Best Christmas Market in Europe 2019” by European Best Destinations organisation.

The star of the market is the Christmas tree, which is the most important Christmas tree in Estonia and has been set up in Town Hall Square since 1441, making it the first Christmas tree ever to be put on display in Europe. The Christmas land is decorated with trees, Christmas decorations, and lights. Local merchants offer Estonian Christmas cuisine, from sour cabbage to gingerbread and hot Christmas drinks, and various handicrafts. The younger guests can enjoy merry-go-rounds and there is a diverse Christmas programme. The real gem of the market is Santa Claus, who will greet children in his own house!

For those who plan to combine fun with work, the holiday with business, it may be good to know, that Estonian businesses are mostly closed from the afternoon of December 23, reopened on December 27, 30 and 31, and then again as usual from January 2. There is always time for family and good friends in the Estonian Christmas tradition. This is a time for recovery, meeting family and friends, and a delicious dinner together. The restaurants are open at Christmas and worth the trip here, to fall in love with local food and to come back again in a while.

The exciting Christmas fairytale on Tallinn Town Hall Square will last until January 7, 2020.
