Tallinn’s annual Christmas market is held on Old Town Hall Square. Tallinn’s Christmas Market, Jöuluturg in Estonian, has become the city’s central symbol of Christmas festivities. It is not difficult to understand, because around the big mighty tree there are many cozy workshops and stalls selling a variety of goods from the Estonian. Shopping favorites tend to be hats, mittens and ornaments. Also Estonian honey, mulled wine and sweets are popular. Besides pleasant shopping, entertainment and activities for children are also offered. Among other things, the kids (or adults, for that matter) can send letters and wish lists to Santa Claus in mailbox at the Christmas tree. If you are really lucky, maybe he even is in even there to great you.

One thing is certain, with the scent of hot mulled wine, the early nights, glistening Christmas lights and snow falling, there is no better place to be at this time of year than Talinn’s Christmas market. It is simply magical! The Christmas market will be open this year from the 23rd of November until January 8th, 2014 and is open every day from 10:00 to 19:00.
