Overview

Hoppe is the medieval outlet store that can be found inside the UNESCO Heritage building close to the Old Town Square in Tallinn. Dating back to the 14th century, the building houses not only Shoppe but also Olde Hansa - the world-renowned medieval restaurant. Shoppe sells an array of handcrafted items all of which have their roots and ancestry in the middle ages. Handmade ceramics, glassware, ironworks, shoes and other clothing garments can all be found within. In addition the Shoppe sells an array of handmade Schnapps, potted honeys, jams and other herbs and spices. Innovative, creative and different - Shoppe is worthy of a visit anytime of the year.
