Midsummer week in Tallinn – lots of fun and inspiring activities!

Although the coronavirus crisis has resulted in an unusual Midsummer where grand festivities are cancelled, Tallinn has many exciting opportunities for your holidays!

The first digital Midsummer Eve celebration is hosted by the Estonian Open Air Museum Tuesday, June 23, starting 7pm (live broadcast on Postimees). On the eve of June 24, one can enjoy live music while dining in the Rotermann quarter. June 25, Tallinn City Museum offers a fascinating tour of the oldest places and buildings of the Old Town. For the adrenaline seekers and horror fans, a ghost tour is planned in the Old Town. Tallinn Zoo and Tallinn Botanic Garden are also welcoming visitors – the premises are open for visitors every day, including national holidays.

Museums and visitor centres are also open at least some days of the week. For example, the Energy Discovery Centre (closed only June 24), the Seaplane Harbour and the Museum and Visitor Centre of Fat Margaret which both are open on June 23 and 24 (from 10am-5pm). Tallinn TV Tower is just the place to escape from the heat – it is open every day, 12pm-7pm (closed June 23). The tower of St Mary’s Cathedral is also open for visitors, offering spectacular views of Tallinn.
