New urban space in Tallinn — cruise terminal and rooftop promenade at Old City Harbour

The modern and versatile cruise terminal at Old City Harbour opens up the seaside to the townspeople for leisure time activities. The thus far inaccessible port area becomes an inviting urban space that also leaves visitors arriving from the sea with an indelible first impression.

The 850-meter cruise promenade that was built by the Port of Tallinn and is open to everyone winds over the roof of the cruise terminal on the northwestern pier connecting the seafront with the Culture Kilometer (Kultuurikilomeeter) walking trail. On the rooftop promenade expansive views extend to the sea, the harbor, ships, and the city. Seating areas, a playground, an outdoor gym, a restaurant with spacious terraces, pretty landscaping, and Estonian art create a particularly lively atmosphere in this fresh new urban space.

The new cruise terminal is the most contemporary in the region, designed with the environment and sustainability in mind. The terminal is powered by solar panels adapted to the Nordic climate and heated and cooled by marine energy by way of a heat pump.

The building that accommodates nearly 2,000 people opens up a multitude of possibilities in addition to serving passengers:

the venue is also perfect for organizing events

  • conferences
  • seminars
  • fairs
  • festivals
  • filming
  • concerts
  • theater performances
  • company events
  • private parties, and much more

The Port of Tallinn seeks to develop a genuine and diverse urban space in the Old City Harbour area well-suited for both local and visitor needs.

We’re creating the seaside city!

Ocean 11, restaurant on the cruise promenade

Ocean 11 is most likely the restaurant with the best view in Tallinn.

The restaurant opens its doors early in the morning, offering breakfast for guests that enjoy a simpler meal and visitors looking for luxury dishes alike. The daily menu is available until 3 p.m., while the à la carte menu opens at lunch for enjoyment until evening hours. The menu relies heavily on seafood, yet lovers of meat and vegetarian dishes will certainly not be disappointed. The drink menu includes well-known classics as well as somewhat bolder choices.

Diners revel in views of the sea and ships with the open bay to the left and the Port of Tallinn to the right. What could be more romantic than a sunset dinner? The restaurant features two large terraces, one of which is lit by the morning sun and the other by the evening sun.

The facilities can also be rented for private events. The indoor space accommodates up to 100 guests, the terraces another 100 each. If you so desire, we will be happy to plan the entire event from food to entertainment for you.

Start and end your day with the sun, the sea, and Ocean 11!

Author’s description

The port is both a place to move through quickly and a place where visitors can say “we arrived”. Physics explains the nature of waves to us in much the same way – a wave is the transmission of energy in matter, although matter itself does not travel with waves.
The “Wave” sculpture expresses the movement of people as waves – their encounters and departures. Meeting a metal wave is a moment that can be remembered and invited to take pictures.
