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 locals for leisure time activities. The once inaccessible port area has become an inviting urban space that also leaves visitors arriving from the sea with an indelible first impression. 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.

Let’s bring the city to the seaside!


The 850-meter cruise promenade is open to everyone and winds over the roof of the cruise terminal on the northwestern pier connecting the seafront with the Culture Kilometer (Kultuurikilomeeter) walking trail. Expansive views like no other 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.

Cruise terminal

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 a heat pump. The cruise terminal has the leading Green Key international environmental label.

It is certain that the visitor’s eyes can rest even inside the terminal: the interior design uses a lot of Estonian wood and the halls are decorated with lush plants.



In addition to servicing passengers the building opens up a multitude of possibilities accommodating ca 1400 people. The venue is also perfect for organizing events.

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

Cruise promenade restaurant Ocean 11


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. Diners revel in views of the sea and ships with the open bay to the left and the Port of Tallinn to the right. 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. Start and end your day with the sun, the sea, and Ocean 11!

Cruise area sculpture “Wave”

Argo Männik
Type of work of art: sculpture
Location: Logi street 4/2, Tallinn

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.
