The Tallinn Christmas Market, located in the Town Hall Square is one of the most beautiful attractions during winter.
Anyways, here’s a list of things you must do at the Tallinn Christmas Market.
1. Eat Estonian Christmas Food
Sauerkraut, blood sausages, pork chops, potatoes…. nobody can resist those tempting aromas. Make sure you don’t eat too much before visiting the market, so that you can properly enjoy Estonian Christmas food.
2. Drink Hot Cocoa or Glögi
There’s nothing better than a cup of hot cocoa or mulled wine — aka glögi — to warm up as you walk around the Town Hall Square.
Bonus: try one of those ginger bread cookies (piparkoogid) mmmmmm, you won’t regret it!
3. Check Out The Music Performances
You must check out the main stage where talented artists perform, incredible choirs sing holiday songs and Santa Claus himself shows up for you to take a selfie with and tell your Christmas wishes.
4. Shop for Artisan Gifts
There are so many cottages with handmade products such as scented candles, cups, cutting boards, or little sculptures — they all make a perfect Christmas gift for your loved ones. It’s basically impossible to leave the market without a souvenir!
5. Take That Instagram-worthy Tallinn Christmas Market Shot
Above all, you simply cannot leave without that glorious shot of the Tallinn Christmas Market. Your Instagram feed will be thankful.
