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.
Relatives living in Tallinn, introduced us to Elk Soup in the town hall. Waitresses in medieval style outfits served in a candle lit room, loved it! Meat pies, Elk ribs also on the menu. If warm...
its located in the heart of the old town. an old and hisotrical building, a lot of food courts, shops, churches and good sites around. the overall area is very nice and u will like the whole area.
Definitely worth a visit, this great little museum offers ample historical background about the old city with fascinating old artifacts.
