Carol singing and Christmas markets in Tallinn

Today first proper snow came down in Tallinn. This means that winter holidays are not far away and soon we can hear carol singing in Old Town Christmas market. This year two major markets are open for public.

Traditional Christmas market in the Old Town
Time: November 29, 2009 – January 7, 2010
Location: Town Hall Square

Look forward to seasonal joy in Tallinn as the Christmas Market, with its Old World charm, hits town. This holiday season, as always, the market is bound to get the city into festive mood. Visitors can browse through and buy wares by skilled artisans in 64 merchant stalls surrounding the enormous Christmas tree. Sellers offer traditional and original gifts including felted wool hats and slippers, buckwheat pillows, wooden bowls, wickerwork, elaborate quilts, ceramic and glassware, little sea-grass animals, homemade candles, and wreaths and other decorations.
If you tire from the buzz of shopping, you can relax and enjoy a glass of mulled wine, hot soup and the occasional gingerbread biscuit. You can also try Estonian traditional holiday food: pork, sauerkraut, black pudding. There will be live music on the market stage and the chance to meet Father Christmas. Watch the Christmas program every Thursday and Friday from 5pm to 7pm and every Saturday and Sunday from 12pm to 2pm.

Rotermann Christmas Market
Time: November 28 – December 23
Location: Rotermann quarter (behind the Coca-Cola Plaza Cinema and Post Office)
Web page:

The secret is out! There’s a new market opening this Christmas for shopaholics everywhere. The historic Rotermann quarter is a just a stone’s throw away from the Old Town. The port offers a great shopping experience and a place to relax at a cafe or maybe a sweet shop. The quarter was the old industrial centre of the city and is known for its pleasing, modern, industrial architecture. The Christmas market will display the wares of up to 20 Estonian design and handicraft craftsmen until December 23, tucked away from the wintry weather.
