Tallinn Botanic Garden is about 8km from the city centre, near the Tallinn TV Tower. The garden has many different categories of flowers, trees and plants – from house plants to tropical varieties. Altogether the Botanic Garden covers 123 hectares and has approx. 4500 different species (of course depending on the time of the year of your visit), so there’s lots to explore. To learn more about the current and upcoming exhibitions and events, visit Botanic Garden’s website.
During summer the garden is an especially beautiful and lovely place to have a picnic. If it gets chilly, you can warm-up in the greenhouse where the tropical and subtropical plants and flowers are located. Or vice versa, if you want to have a cold ice-cream on a warm summer day, there’s a little kiosk inside.
During the summer season (29.04-29.09) Tallinn Botanic Garden is open daily from 10am to 8pm (greenhouses 11am-6pm), and in winter (30.09-28.04) from 9am to 4pm (greenhouses are open from 11 am to 4pm). A little cafeteria/kiosk is open on weekends from 12pm to 4pm.
