Town Hall Square has been a market place and the centre of this old Hanseatic town since the Middle Ages. It became the centre of the Lower Town at the turn of the 13th and 14th centuries.
As a square it plays an important role today as well - in summer it is filled with outdoor cafes, plays host to the Old Town Days and other medieval festivals, is a venue for open air concerts and fairs and more. In winter it becomes a magical Christmas market, the centrepiece of which is a towering spruce tree. The tradition of celebrating Christmas festivities here dates back to 1441, when the Brotherhood of the Blackheads are thought to have erected the world's very first Christmas tree.
Wonderful fascinating old (partially reconstructed) town hall... enjoy this historical building in the old town main square.
You can' t miss the town hall when you roam around the old town and the town square. Visit any of the restaurants there for authentic Estonian brews and reindeer and elk specialities.
Not so many important things in hall. If you have more time, you can go and see hall's old times. I don't like there because this building is hardly museum.
