Autumn fair – Petersplatz & Hääfelimäärt

Stroll past the stands, say «Hallo!» here, or «Sali» there. Snack on sweet magenbrot and treat yourself to a mulled wine with friends. The kids play, gaze in wonder and ride on the carousel. This is the autumn fair on the «Peti», as residents call their favourite square. You can browse for beautiful objects or delicacies here, eat one of Jeffrey’s renowned steaks or a «Kääsbängel», buy pans or knitted hats. Away from the wild rides, the atmosphere is cosier at Petersplatz and the Hääfelimäärt.
