Tallinn Song Festival Grounds

Tallinn, Estonia

The Tallinn Song Stage (Lauluväljak) was built in 1959 for the Estonian Song Festival. The stage was meant to hold over 15,000 singers but it’s also possible to use it the other way – the performance will take place in front of the stage and audience is sitting on the stage.

The stage was the main places of the Estonian revolution and new independence in 1988-1991. Estonians gathered there to sing patriotic hymns in what became known as the Singing Revolution that led to the overthrow of Soviet rule.

Went to see The Weeknd and the space was very pretty. Only disadvantage was being short you wont be able to see much if you don’t have some kind of golden circle ticket. The staff did a good job on getting people in and out. Only negative was food and drink lines.

Best place in front of the beach and warm outside swimming pool. Perfect for the families, rooms that goes straight to the terrace with the pool, table outside your room to enjoy sea view and have a chill drink. Highly recommended all year round as the pool open in winter too. We were family with 2 kids, 4 years old and 13 years old. Will definitely come back. ??

Fantastic place for concerts. Holds 65 000 spectators. Higher ground rises back and gives good view over crowd. Surrounding park also lovely.

Kakesbeck Castle

Kakesbeck is one of the largest medieval fortifications in Münsterland and the oldest castle in Lüdinghausen. The imposingly grown complex originated in 1120 as a motte, a small hilltop tower castle. After numerous changes of ownership, the castle was extended onto two islands, but it was not until the 14th century that it underwent significant alterations and extensions under the von Oer family. The estate experienced its heyday in the middle of the 18th century, when it covered an area of almost one square kilometre and consisted of five further outer castles in addition to the core castle, which were secured by ramparts and moats.

The well-maintained condition of the castle today is thanks to the late Wilfried Grewing, the former lord of the castle. The foundation named after him has been particularly committed to preserving the property since 2020.
