Pop-up ice rink is once again open in Tallinn’s Old Town

The heart of Tallinn’s historic Old Town plays host to a unique pop-up ice rink, one that opens at the beginning of December and closes with the arrival of the first rays of the spring sun at the end of March or the beginning of April.

Located next to the historic Church of St. Nicholas, the open air ice rink on Harju Street is open to all city residents and tourists. Atmospheric lighting, pleasant music and a warm café where you can take a break and warm yourself up – everything needed to guarantee an unforgettable ice skating experience!

“In cooperation with Kadrioru Park, the ice rink was decorated with Christmas trees decked in shining lights, which gives a romantic wintry air to the Old Town ice rink,” said Kalle Klandorf, Deputy Mayor of Tallinn. The portable ice rink, which opened for the first time in 2006, has offered city residents, visitors to the city and thousands of school-aged children the opportunity to go skating during several consecutive winters in which there was little snowfall.
