Lake Viljandi

Lake Viljandi is in a primeval valley, which is 11 m deep, 450 m wide and 4600 metres long. The lake is well-known in Estonia thanks to the song about the boatman of VIljandi, who day-dreams about the beautiful blue eyes of a girl he once saw when he was young. The trail that goes around the lake will take hikers to the observation platform on the other shore where you will see a charming and unique silhouette of the town.

  • Spectacular view

    Take a walk by Trepimägi to the lake, where when temperatures are good - you can go for a nice swim or a boat ride- rental is located right at the beach. Apart from activities it is very relaxing and...

  • Nice to see

    Nice lake to see from castle ruins or just walk at the beach area. Especially good to go with hot day. There has also possibility to rent a boat and make little ride at the lake.

  • A must-see

    You cannot visit Viljandi and not go see the lake. Best views are from the castle hill but once you go down there is a very good playground for children, opportunities to rent a boat etc.
