Tallinn for Xmas - is there enough to do for 1 week?

As per the title, looking at going to Tallinn over Xmas and thinking may as well go for a week vs. a few days given the cost of getting there, hotel, etc, but is there enough to do & see for 1 week?

If you like museums, then sure! Otherwise a week might be quite long and I would suggest day trips to Helsinki or other cities/places in Estonia.

I recommend to spend a few days in Pärnu in one of the spas. Just spend your mornings getting pampered and enjoy your evenings out :)

It all depends from activities you like.

Tallinn has around 400 000 people and plenty of activities.

Beside museums you could also:

- Visit on of the pools, waterparks or spas.

- hike or walk in the forest and seaside

- open air museum is for half a day attraction

- daytour to tartu by train

- Daytour to Lahemaa National park (guided) or shorter visit to Paldiski or Kõrvemaa by train and walk and hike there around (train is very cheap in Estonia, around 2-3 EUR one way).

- find some of the handicraft shops and get to do some handicraft by yourself

TV tower combined with warm botanical garden is good for 1 day, combine it with walking back to city and a full day will be covered.

How do you say "bored" in Welsh?
