Guided tours

We invite visitors to explore the Arvo Pärt Centre building and learn more about our daily activities and our broader goals. By walking together through the centre’s unique building, we will see what kinds of documents the Arvo Pärt archives hold and what they can tell us about the composer’s work. We will learn about the literature in the composer’s library, find out who has been the most significant interpreters of Arvo Pärt’s music for the composer himself, and why the building includes a chapel and a lookout tower.

The tour also allows visitors to glimpse some of Arvo Pärt’s manuscripts and listen to his music.

We request that groups (up to 12 people) register in advance via e-mail at
