Tallinn Botanic Garden, Tallinn

4.3
#3 of 23 in Parks in Tallinn
Home to an array of native and exotic species, Tallinn Botanic Garden represents the most extensive of its kind in the country. Established originally in the Soviet years as a showcase for plant adaptation, the complex quickly grew into a collection spanning many greenhouses and arboretum sections. Visit the gardens, nestled in a lush riverside valley near the city, and wander the 123 hectares (300 acres) of indoor and outdoor space. Join a guided tour (they are offered in English) to get a solid overview of the facility as a whole and to glean in-depth knowledge about the resident plants, their life-cycles, and their role in the environment. Afterward, go for a stroll along the nearly 4 km (2.5 mi) of outdoor trails, traversing different habitats and ecological zones laid out by theme. Make Tallinn Botanic Garden a centerpiece of your Tallinn vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Tallinn travel app .

  • Fantastic garden! Tons of flowers and other colorful plants.
  • Great place for a family. Open area and many different specimens. The indoor area may get crowded fast though
  • Nice collection of plants, but building is old and needs modernization.
  • It costs money to go in here? Odd. I saw it from the TV tower and not upset I saved my money.
  • The garden was nice, but a little bit small and maybe not so interesting. But I'm sure it's way nicer in summer.

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.
