The buildings along the promenade are all very attractive and include the Kursaal – a small, wooden concert venue where summer concerts are held by touring musical groups. If you do just one thing in Haapsalu make sure it is to take a stroll along the promenade late in the afternoon. Waterfront cafés selling good coffee and delicious cakes. It’s a very pleasant place to be even on a Saturday night. Piotr Tchaikovsky spent some time during the summer months of 1867 in Haapsalu and was inspired by a folk song heard in the town from which he developed the melody for his Sixth Symphony.
There are two berthing options here. The Veskiviigi marina provides better shelter, but guest berthing is limited. The harbour is exposed to easterly and NE winds.
A useful harbour map shows the location of the yacht harbours.
