Segway Tours Kalamaja/Telliskivi / Tallinn

Once we’ve done exploring Old Town Tallinn, it was time to leave it and discover parts of Tallinn just outside the Old Town.

Segway Tours Kalamaja/Telliskivi / Tallinn

This was our second day in Tallinn and we used Segways to discover a very charming neighbourhood named Kalamaja. It was my first time and was worried a bit at the beginning although I have to admit it is absolutely very easy to ride.

Tallinn Kalamaja wooden houses

Leaving the seaside, we rode our Segways into Kalamaja neighbourhood, famous with its wooden houses and bohemian charm. ‘Kalamaja’ literally means ‘fish house’ in Estonian, and starting from the 14th century the area was traditionally dominated by fishermen, fishmongers and boat wrights.
The wooden houses built to accommodate these workers became Kalamaja’s architectural legacy and are now what gives neighbourhood its unforgettable charm.
Recently the area has taken on a bohemian atmosphere, becoming the residence of choice for young, creative types. Clever use of space and dedicated use of local produce makes the local restaurant-cafés an integral part of the Kalamaja atmosphere.
A good way to experience Kalamaja is to visit the Telliskivi which is a collection of factory buildings that slowly transformed into a popular hangout for those who enjoy off-beat restaurants, art expos, craft beer, antiques shopping, alternative theatre and clubbing.


It is Estonia’s biggest creative economic enterprise centre, bringing together a diverse range of activities and businesses. For example, there is a 160-seat eatery, a childcare centre, a printing shop, a furniture shop, a theatre and an antique books store. Dance evenings are held on Tuesday evenings, Saturdays bring a flea market.
More than anything, the hub is a bohemian place for relaxation and business that encourages people with similar interests to get together.
We had a coffee-break in Telliskivi at the famous F-Hoone before we ended our tour at the Old City.

We offer 2 hour guided Segway tours to Kalamaja – Telliskivi area, please see details here to book.
