Tallinn Old Town Tour on Tuesday

We will have a professional guide taking you to a 1.5h-2h Old Town tour. The Tour starts at 19:00pm on Tuesday January 23th. The guide waits for you in front of the Tallink Spa & Conference hotel. Pre registration is mandatory – sign up here.



Our forum’s official hotel is Tallink Spa & Hotel (address Sadama 11a). It is located conveniently just 1min walk from our forum venue Kultuurikatel. Travel from the airport to the hotel is a short 10min taxi ride. If you arrive by the ferry, then it is an easy 8min walk to the hotel (check out the route here).
In addition to our organized Old Town Tour we would advise to walk around the Telliskivi area which is kind of a Hipster Central in Tallinn – Great food places there – F-Hoone (nice food, good price), Lendav Taldrik (Indian), Kivi Paber Käärid (gluten free).

Actually we checked out Tripadvisor recommendations and will have to agree with what are listed as top things to do – List

For moving around in Tallinn — we highly recommend to use BOLT app. This is by far the most popular taxi ordering apps in Estonia, also allows to rent scooters, bikes, order food. Uber is available but with fewer cars.

If you get a regular taxi from the street, be sure to agree on the price before starting the ride. If you are at the hotel, ask the reception to get you a taxi.
