Rotermann Quarter in Tallinn

In Rotermann Quarter, in the heart of Tallinn, between the Old Town, the port, and Viru Square, old industrial buildings that have been given new functions stand next to modern architecture.

The industrial area started to thrivingly develop in the 19th century and it was the location for a department store, a factory that produced starch, spirit, tables, and pasta, a mill that produced bread, flour, and groat, buildings of a steam saw, and a salt warehouse, which is one of the most unique preserved limestone structures in Estonia. Currently, the building houses the Museum of Estonian Architecture, which was built on the basis of a design by a Baltic German Ernst Boustedt in 1908.

There are several restaurants, shops, and the multiplex Coca Cola Plaza in Rotermann Quarter.

  • Small, Still Developing

    A former industrial area in the process of transforming, there isn't much there yet - a dew bars and cafés that offer a nice contrast to the nearby Old Town (a five minute walk away), but in truth it...

  • Nice location

    Visited Rotermann Quarter because of Kalev chocolate shop. It is a nice neighbourhood, however with all that snow and sleet it is a struggle to walk there. Could be cleaned a bit better though.

  • Unique architechture, modern and perfect place for shopping and staying in Tallinn

    We had our hotel in the Rotermann area and it was super practical, within walking distance to anything in the city center and on a direct tram line to the airport. Even the Telliskivi area is doable...
