To Kadriorg, Pirita and Telliskivi by bike

By bike to Kadriorg, Pirita and Telliskivi

Tallinn is conveniently small. A bike is ideal for navigating through traffic jams, so that you don't have to rush too much. You see and experience more and feel more freedom. There are fewer bike paths in the very centre of town, so you have to ride on the pavement or road, but the centre is becoming more and more bike friendly and, if you are respectful yourself, drivers and pedestrians are accommodating, give way and don't beep.

Our cyclist has easily three destinations for visitors who want to discover the town by bike.

Sports enthusiasts should direct their bike towards Pirita, to which cyclists can ride on a cycle path along the picturesque seaside and pine forest. You can head to the Museum of Costal Folk (13 km) or continue to the end of Viimsi peninsula (19 km). This route also take in the Pirita Health Track, which is a favourite of cycling enthusiasts.

For those who want to take it easier, we recommend Kadriorg and the Telliskivi district. Going to Kadriorg allows you also to take a cultural tour. On the itinerary, you can have a number of sights such as an old park and the swan pond, the superb Kadriorg Palace, the Japanese Garden, the Song Festival Grounds, KUMU Art Museum, cafés and picnic spots, all within 5 minutes of the city centre.

Cruising on a bike or going to eat out at the artistic and creative Telliskivi district is equally nice – hipsters, colourful wooden houses and the renovated market of Balti Jaam. There are lots of cyclists in Kalamaja, and sometimes you come across peculiar designer and retro bikes. Hotel Viru is only 3 kilometres from Kalamaja.
