THINGS TO DO IN TALLINN IN 2 DAYS – AN ITINERARY

DAY 1 IN TALLINN – VISIT THE OLD TOWN

Tallinn might be most famous for its old town and it is indeed very charming, so make sure to add it to your Tallinn itinerary (even if you only have one day). I stayed at a hotel very close (hotel here) and visiting the old town was one of the first things I did. Here are most of the tourist attractions in Tallinn

There are many cute small streets with little cafes, restaurants, and historic buildings, and so the old town will probably the first thing on your to-do list. If you visit some of Tallinn´s sights in the old town and just get lost in the streets, you can easily spend a full day in the old town and here are the 10 best things to see in Tallinn.

KOHTUOTSA

Wondering about more places to see in Tallinn? Here are more places to visit in Tallinn, Estonia (and let’s start in the old town for a while).

TOWN HALL

The Tallinn Town Hall is the oldest town hall in the region (Baltic and Scandinavia) – this Gothic-style hall is a popular tourist attraction in Tallinn and in summer (July and August) it is open to visitors to visit each room for an entry fee of about 5€.

The entrance to the church is free and with the Tallinn Card, you can also get to the tower for free. As many Tallinn attraction, the entrance fee isn’t high though (compared to western European standards) and while fees sometimes stop me to book certain activities in other parts of the world, you can enjoy the best things in Tallinn for free – or most often, for very little money.

Where to Eat in the Old Town

I also visited Vegan Restoran V for a late lunch and was surprised at how busy it was. Vegan food seems to be popular in Tallinn though meat and seafood are very typical. The food was not mind blowing. But it was tasty and the restaurant was very charming and cute.

If you stay in Tallinn for longer than one day, you can add these places for your 2-day itinerary.

The green lounge surely makes a good place for strolls and if you have more time, you could get out somewhere along the way to explore the green part of Tallinn.

KADRIORG PALACE

Before I actually visited the TV Tower, I had stopped at Kadriorg Palace – one of the most beautiful sights in Tallinn.

It is a colorful baroque palace, built in the 18.th century, and definitely worth a visit. There is also a museum but I did not visit it and just admired from the outside. With the Tallinn Card, you can visit the museum for free.
