Tallinn Botanic Garden, Tallinn

4.3
#3 of 22 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.

  • We came here and I could spend all day walking through the green houses! Lots of lovely orchids and cactus! We came when it was snowing so we didn’t get to experience the outside gardens as much but w...  more »
  • The resort is located in Pirita 300 meters before the TV-Tower, take bus 34 A, from the Centre of Tallinn! During the summer, this is a very large facility on a large surface. During the winter, the plant is limited to 3 different departments with different temperature. Hot and humid where tropical plants grow and the large these at the entrance, it is 22 degrees. There is also a fish pond in the facility where the European plants is available! The first week of March, it is customary to have a Orkidèutställning!

  • Fifteen minutes from the old town by taxi. On the bus, but runs half-hourly. Next to the Tower, so if you've already got here, Garden nearby. In the winter, in the wet and windy conditions, it is not for the faint of heart. But it is worth noting that the landscape architecture of the garden is very nice. Ponds, lawns, trees, shrubs and flower silhouettes. Come better summer!

  • Given Estonia is a Baltic country, I expected to see at least some outdoor exhibition even in winter. But there was nothing. There was only the greenhouse which cost 5eur per person. The indoor exhibition was well organized but nothing spectacular. The greenhouse itself was small so there was not so much space to move when it got crowded.
  • went for annual orchid show - my favorite - this year so many different orchids, store had great selection to take home :-) happy here
  • A fun place to visit, but going in the middle of the winter there were no outdoor exhibits. There were three different indoor exhibits that were fun to see, but not really a super large facility. With the Tallinn card it was worth the visit.
  • Take a half of the day to explore, it needs to have plenty of time to see everything, garden is quite huge and greenhouse itself is wonderful.
  • Great place to enjoy the tropical Flora, three most challenging during winter times)
