Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    Haapsalu old town is my favorite place to visit in Estonia. The small old town is surrounded by the sea, very nice small streets to walk, visit some restaurants or cafe´. There were places on the sea where the ice was cleaned from snow and ice skaters enjoying themselves. The town is not busy in winter time, rather peaceful. Lots of great apartments available, some close to the old town even have sauna and zacuzzi where we relaxed.

    Impressive castle to visit with children. There was a children playground just a few minutes walk from the castle. This is a must visit in Haapsalu and a very good reason to visit Haapsalu. We visited last time in December 2021 but know that there are lots of events like concerts and American car show organised during summer months. A few hours past quite fast walking around and in the castle.

    We enjoyed walking almost the entire promenade, very nice as it goes all the way at the sea and around the Haapsalu old town. It has parks, restaurants, the Africa beach and cafe´s. The Africa beach itself seems to be very suitable to visit even with smaller children and they have a playground just close to the beach. We enjoyed visiting Haapsalu as there are many restaurants and nice apartments to choose from. Our apartment even had sauna and a jacuzzi and no need to visit any of the SPA hotels.

    This is a place to sit after having a walk on a beach side of the city.
    As you approach the bench, you begin to hear the composer's music and information about him.

    A dolomite creation Sundial, was completed by Roman Haavamae, a well known designer and sculptor of Haapsalu urban area, in 1924. It tells the story of human life from the beginning to the end and the text along the perimeter says :Thus a human life disappeares in the endless circle of time...

    Nice and good selection of different wines.
    I took part in their Estonian language wine-training, where most of me didn't understand the story, but I was also partially translated into English.
    Good calm music, nice service.
    The selection of glass wines was very pleasantly chosen.
    All bottled wines are beautifully displayed on the shelf with national flags on price tags.
    Prices are cheaper than in Finnish restaurants. I bought to my husband two bottles of wine.
    Super place. I recommend!
