The beautifully renovated Rotermann district is just a short distance from the port, city centre and Medieval Old Town. The shopping and dining district, located between the Old Town and the Viru Centre, is also an easy place to stop by when in Tallinn centre. Originally built in the 20th century, the area was once home to a salt factory, alcohol, furniture and pasta.
The architecture of the Rotermann Quarter is an open-minded mix of old and new
Once upon a time, Rotermann was also home to a flour mill for making bread and a large convenience store. Today, the architecturally valuable former salt factory houses the Estonian Museum of Architecture and the Rotermann Quarter has become a charming world of restaurants and shopping.
The redevelopment of the Rotermann quarter has been a success, with the district consisting of old buildings and new buildings built on their site. The complex has retained its character and Rotermann, with its unconventional buildings, offers plenty to delight the eye, as well as services and restaurants. Rotermanni is a lively quarter with shops, restaurants, cafés and offices, as well as residential buildings.
