The sweetest ride from Tallinn to Viljandi is on the Folk train! Accompanied by musicians, the train will take you from Tallinn to Viljandi on Thursday and get you back safely on Sunday. More information about Folk train will appear here soon!
In addition to the Folk train, scheduled trains will also be running. See the timetable at http://elron.ee/en/
Buses from Tallinn and Tartu will run according to schedule. See ticket information at www.tpilet.ee/en?
Due to the increase of traffic during the festival, we suggest getting your ticket early to guarantee a spot.
The ride from Tallinn to Viljandi takes a little more than 2 hours and from Tartu it's about an hour.
Tip for the lonely driver: fill your car with grateful hitchhikers, if you happen to come across any by the road. Perhaps reminisce about some of the games you used to play as kids or play some word games on the way?
Parking in Viljandi is free everywhere, but we kindly ask to follow temporary traffic signs!
