  • The brotherhood of Black Heads (blackheads) consisted of Bachelor merchants. The particularity of the name comes from the god they worshipped. Is visible at the top of the façade of the building. This home sits on pikk street next to the Embassy of Sweden.

  • At the time of our visit in may 2017 onwards the whole House in the Woods. Go restoration work. But we're not upset, saw it in past visits, and it does not need to specifically look for a walk through the old town to find no problem

  • When we visited Tallinn the building was covered in scaffolding so nothing to see inside and little outside. The entrance door however was still visible and impressive.  more »

Where to stay in Tallinn

As Estonia's largest city, Tallinn has a wide range of options for accommodation during your travels. Many of these--from economical bed and breakfasts to a luxury hotels--center within the Old Town or just outside of it, giving you easy access to historical sights and a range of activities. Get more for your money by venturing a little farther away; try a guesthouse in one of the surrounding areas for an authentic Estonian experience. Be sure to book accommodation in advance if you are traveling in the summer, as hostels, hotels, and bed and breakfasts are known to book up fast for the months of July and August. This is especially true for weekends from May through to September.
