From Tallinn, take the E67 (L4) and then the L9. After about 40 kilometers, you will arrive in Laitse, where there are two stations away from our route, which are only a few kilometers apart.
Our first stop is the Laitse castle, one of the country's most impressive neo-Gothic style buildings. It looks like a medieval castle but was actually built around 1892. The castle has guest rooms, a restaurant, and a beautifully landscaped garden.
Less than 5 kilometers to the south on the other side of the L9, is the Laitse Rally Park. From electric cars to karts to real rally cars, all motorised vehicles can be driven by visitors.
On the grounds of the Laitse rally park, there is also a small but fine vintage collection. The tour of the collection and travel bookings must be requested in advance.
The 9-kilometre long Marimetsa bog is located 25 minutes drive southwest of Laitse. You should plan at least 4 hours for the whole route and definitely take rubber boots with you to avoid getting your feet wet. A large part leads over a wooden plank path to a lookout tower. On the way, there is an opportunity for birdwatching.
Once you've returned safely from the moor, continue west on the L9. In the village of Kadarpiku you will find a picturesque country house, built by the Estonian painter Ants Laikmaa. Laikmaa studied painting in Dusseldorf and brought Impressionism to Estonia.
We now come to Haapsalu via the L9. Even the Russian composer Pyotr Tchaikovsky loved this charming town and is said to have composed one of his symphonies here. Take at least two days to explore Haapsalu and make sure to take a walk on the promenade.
