What is the best time to travel to Tallinn?

Summer is the best season to travel to Tallinn because the city is at its finest and liveliest. The city is full of events and the sun is shining till late evening. However Estonia is worth seeing at any time of the year. In winter you can admire the Christmas lights and the snowy scenery or visit a medieval-styled Christmas market.

Seasonal changes appear strongly in Tallinn. The busiest periods in Tallinn are between Christmas and Epiphany and the summer season. We recommend booking your local experiences early because the holiday seasons are usually busy in Tallinn.
