An interesting and beautiful place. It makes you think what a blast the hit must have been. Worth a visit!

So there is not a lot to see here and it doesn't take long to see it all, but still, I found it very interesting.

Just looking at it and imagining the force of an impact like that. It is very awe-inspiring.

And now I can honestly say that I have seen a meteorite crater.

Nothing impressive but might as well

If you are in the island which has very relaxing nature about it, you can go check this out place as well. This place has a nice path around for a walk but it's very small. If you have time to spend in the island this is ok to visit but if not I wouldn't bother.

Meteorite craters: search for the 7th.

In a nice surrounding nature, but a bit touristically exploited. Not much more than a lake to see. Of course many Excalibur swords have been made with the extra strong iron is the meteorite. Read the story of the two lovers.. who were punished!

Crater

It is such a nice view and path that leads to the crater. The colour of the crater is light green and looks interesting. The crater is small from the top but when you come closer it looks much bigger

This new museum is telling the interesting story about the rock formations on Saaremaa. On exibit is also a meteorite weighing 96 kg.
Located 300 m behind the museum is the famous meteor crater.

Kaali crater & nearby museum
Jun 2015 • Couples
The museum is small but interesting, and contains some debris from the formation of the crater. You can walk around the lake in the middle of the crater and a path around the rim is currently being renovated. There's a display board with some information and a viewing platform. You can travel by bus from Kuressaare directly to Kaali, but there are only a few services per day.Several other people visited Kaali crater at the same time we were there.

Silent pool
May 2014 • Friends
The Kaali Meteorite crater is in a very tranquil spot deep in woodlands. It is a bit tricky to get to. Best option is a bus from Kuressaare 15km south of here. Some buses stop at Kaali, but most use the main road across the island. If you are on one of these you will have a 2km walk from the main road. There are around 9 meteor craters here but all except the main one are overgrown. Steps lead up to the crater rim where you get a fine view of the pool and tree lined bank surrounding it. It is surprisingly echoey once you are inside and there are signs which describe the event. Apparently the meteor hit the Earth 4000yrs ago. This is one of the few places in the world where you can see such a thing.
