Tallinn



 WITH a capital city that combines the magic of a medieval Old Town with bustling nightlife, it would be easy to visit Tallinn and think you’ve seen the best of Estonia.


But outside the city you’ll find unspoiled nature, fantastic food and a wellness culture that won’t break the bank. Over half of the country is covered by forest, and stretches of coastline look out to the Baltic Sea and Gulf of Finland, making for some of the most beautiful vistas you’ll ever see.

Enjoy a salt scrub or a “whisking” – being gently slapped with a bunch of tree twigs to improve your circulation – £27 per person


Estonians are sauna-mad, so most hotels boast impressive spa facilities, but the real gems are the rustic outdoor saunas.


In Võru County in the south, you’ll find Mooska Farm, where you can experience centuries-old smoke-sauna rituals (Mooska.Eu).


Owner Eda leads you out of a dimly lit cabin to jump into a chilly pond, while chanting mantras connected to the ancient history of the practice.

Eat, beach, sleep, repeat Hire a bike to take in the parks and neoclassical buildings

Resort town Pärnu’s wide, sandy beach, shallow waters and promenade make it the place Estonians flock to in the summer.

The luxe Hedon Spa & Hotel offers a three-hour “silent spa” experience, with nine saunas and pools to work through, from £14.


Afterwards, head to the hotel’s Restaurant Raimond for a three-course locally sourced dinner that will set you back £43 but tastes as good as a Michelin-starred feast.


Bright, spacious rooms here cost from £92 B&B (Hedonspa.Com).


Bog standard Hire a bike to take in the parks and neoclassical buildings, finishing at Pastoraat Cafe to refuel with freshly baked sweet treats

Half an hour from Pärnu lies Soomaa National Park, where you can book a guided wilderness day trip for £64, combining canoeing and bog-shoeing – hiking across a peat bog in special shoes that stop you from sinking (Soomaa.Com).


You can even go for a swim in a bog pool if you’re feeling brave!


Afterwards, enjoy a delicious lunch of local speciality mulgipuder – barley porridge – and bread, before you launch your canoes for a relaxing hour-long paddle.


Medieval wonderland Marvel at the architecture in the old town of Tallinn

Tallinn is the best-preserved medieval city in northern Europe, so make time to roam its cobbled streets.


The Town Hall Square hosts an award-winning Christmas market in winter.


At night, head to the hip Telliskivi area, where industrial buildings decorated with street art are home to craft breweries, restaurants and a weekly flea market.


Then climb the 157 steps up to the Patkuli viewing platform for enchanting views of the Old Town – the perfect farewell to your trip.

Bremen, Bremerhaven and Hamburg.

Visit And Explorer The Three Best Cities In Germany


 Hamburg

Hamburg is one of Germany’s most exciting cities. It has a fascinating World War Two legacy, memorialised by the bombed-out remains of the Church of St. Nicholas.


It is also famous for  Reeperbahn, one of the liveliest areas to enjoy a drink in the evening. Enjoy a cocktail, coffee or a meal at Bidges & Son, where they serve a subtle vegan menu, subtle in that they don’t tell you it’s vegan. They also sell t-shirts and hoodies made from bamboo and fair trade organic cotton.





Bremerhaven

Bremerhaven was founded in 1827, and by all accounts, is a small city with only 113,000 inhabitants (any place in Germany with more than 100,000 residents counts as a city).

Bremerhaven’s “Big Church” 

From Hamburg airport, we took an electric minivan to our hotel located on Bremerhaven’s, Atlantic Hotel Sail City, which has pledged to “take the green path” with a focus on sustainability and reducing plastic waste – and they have beehives!


The harbour is a delightful spot to take a stroll, past dinky lighthouses overlooking the River Weser and old-fashioned sailing boats dotted along the waterway.


I went for a run along the harbour early one morning, accompanied only by the sound of my footsteps and the occasional friendly passerby – it was so peaceful. This was ideal time to admire the stunning neo-gothic church known affectionately by the locals as the “Big Church”, just across the main road from the harbour. The church has an ornate green copper roof typical of many old German churches.


Bremerhaven’s harbour is also home to one of northern Germany’s most popular museums: the Klimahaus, which opened in 2009 and has since had more than 9 million visitors.



Bremen

Bremen is a 35-minute train ride from Bremerhaven and is the largest city on the River Weser. It is an interesting juxtaposition of a commercial, industrial city with a historic and picturesque centre – the town hall in the market square was built in the 1400s and has UNESCO World Heritage Status.


Bremen also has many green spaces, is pleasingly flat, and has become the third most popular cycling city in Europe behind Amsterdam and Copenhagen. Around 25 per cent of the city’s residents choose cycling as their primary form of transport.


Cycling in Bremen

As a keen leisure cyclist myself, I was looking forward to exploring Bremen by bicycle – we were able to rent our bikes from our hotel, Dorint City Hotel Bremen.


We spent a delightful couple of hours cycling through Bremen’s parks, along the river Weser and through the historic town centre.


Things to look out for in the town centre include the smallest hotel in the world (with just three rooms), the oldest wine cellar in Germany (600 years old) and ornately embellished Secret Street, built by a wealthy coffee merchant.


The vegetable wharf in Bremen 

The city of Bremen yis leading Germany’s efforts in developing urban agriculture. The vegetable wharf (Gemüsewerft), located in one of Bremen’s most disadvantaged quarters, is a 300 square metre space producing vegetables, fruit, herbs and hops, located along the Weser and surrounded by industrial buildings.


Exquisite cuisine at Restaurant Canova Bremen

The socially conscious non-profit employs people who would otherwise struggle to get work, including drug abuse victims and those with psychiatric special needs.


We were able to book a tour of the wharf and learn more about the great work they were doing whilst enjoying a beer in their outdoor bar, surrounded by hops and herbs.


Incidentally, Gemüsewerft supplies their produce to Restaurant Canova Bremen, which serves seasonal, sustainable produce. We enjoyed a delicious meal in this classy restaurant, and the food was sensational.
