Hey,

We will be visiting Tartu in the beginning of June and it's my soon to be husbands birthday then. Do you have any recommandations for a suprise? He likes good food, beer/wine. So maybe a nice place to go and eat a meal? Or a fun activity to do.

Regards

Hey, depends what you like, for a dinner and finedineish experience I reccomend Joyce, polpo or hõlm. Beer wise the best bet for a pub is Pühaste kelder, its a local Brewery run taproom essentially, there's 2 bottle shops worth mentioning, gambrinus in the town center and sip tartu, the latter has wine and pretty much all Estonian cider present also, they do occasional tasting events also for example ( https://sip.ee/sip-tartu/ollekoolitused-tartus/31-05-2019-koikide-trappist-kloostrite-olled), its situated 10-15 min by foot from the town center in a creative hub(aparaaditehas), with some cafeterias, I restauranrs and gallerys. For a brunch or a breakfast I reccomend from aparaaditehas kolm tilli or from the center Forrest.

Hello Mieke

There is an Tartu adventure park, where you can climb the trees and test your selves. Also there is "pühaste" cellar in the oldtown where you can get Tartu most famous craftbeers. In "hansa tall" you can get authentical estonian cuisene.

Hi Mieke!
I agree with Joyce, mentioned by Laura. If you like SPA you can visit VSpa in the same building as well before nice dinner (best SPA in Tartu).

I love Umbroht as well - https://www.facebook.com/umbroht/. It's located just near the main square.

Best wine - Vein ja Vine http://www.veinjavine.ee. But they have only Italian snacks (great ones) and no dinner.

Good local craft beer (including beer made in Tartu) - Pühaste kelder http://www.puhastebeer.com. All places are located near the main square, so you can just walk to them.

Fun activity - what kind of activity you like? Sport, SPA, museums, workshops?

Hi Irina,

He likes adventurous things, walking and exploring new things. We are going to the science museum on one of the other days so maybe something else as we will probably will visit a lot of museums on our trip. A workshop can be fun.
