Vacation rentals in Tallinn
Since the fall of the Iron Curtain, the Estonian capital has become a tourist magnet with a wide range of accommodation in all price ranges. If you are looking for a vacation rental or an apartment, you will find it especially in the centre of Tallinn. The move into an apartment in the historical centre is particularly practical, where you can pitch your tents within sight of sights such as the Aleksandar Nevski Cathedral, the KGB Museum and the famous medieval city wall. Thanks to the well-developed public transport network, you can also reach all the sights of the city without a rental car.Relax at the edge of town
If you want to enjoy the tranquillity of the Baltic Sea coast during your stay in Tallinn, we recommend a vacation rental on the outskirts of the city. Especially beautifully situated are the accommodations near the coast, from where you can often even enjoy the view of the Baltic Sea. You will find what you are looking for especially in the districts of Merimetsa in the west and Maarjamäe and Merivälja in the east.

Travelers and Activities
The multitude of historical sights reflects the importance of Tallinn in the past centuries. If you are interested in history and culture, you will get your money's worth by visiting architecturally impressive buildings such as St. Nikolai's Church, Aleksandar Nevski Cathedral and Tallinn Castle. A visit to Tallinn also includes a tour of the medieval Old Town, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, where the oldest streets and buildings date back to the 11th century. The cultural programme is rounded off by an exploration tour through the Naval Museum, the Occupation Museum and the KUMU Art Museum.
Things to know
The cultural programme of the Estonian capital knows how to combine tradition and modern pop culture. This symbiosis is expressed in a varied programme of events, ranging from the "Days of Baroque Music" in February to the "Jazzkaar" jazz festival in April and the Old Town Festival in June. Tallinn is no less famous for the skateboard festival "Simpel Session" in spring and the film festival "Schwarze Nächte" in November.
The name Tallinn derives from the Estonian word "Taanilinn", which means "Danish castle" or "Danish city".
Top travel tips
Located on the banks of the river Pirita, the botanical garden covers an area of 110 hectares and is home to over 8,000 plant species. In particular, the variety of exotic plants makes the complex a top excursion destination for nature lovers.Specialities from the Estonian cuisine
Estonian cuisine is very familiar to the German palate. As a result, those who like it a little more rustic will feel at home with traditional dishes such as black pudding with sauerkraut. You should also try the Kalev chocolate and the Vana Tallinn liqueur, which is particularly good on ice.Dream beaches at the Baltic Sea
Especially in summer Tallinn is a paradise for bathers. The Pirita Beach, the Stroomi Beach, the Kakumäe Beach, the Harku Beach and the Pikakari Beach invite you to dig, swim and relax on five sandy beaches, each several kilometres long.
