One of the most haunted houses in the world is on Airbnb – Dead Air
Located in the Old Town of Tallinn in Estonia, this old townhouse hosts thousands of tourists who take photos of its infamous feature – a fake window, painted to look real after the original was boarded up to hide his dark past.
Known as the Devil’s Wedding House, it is claimed that during its medieval period, a dark stranger showed up to help a financially broken and sobbing innkeeper who was about to kill himself. He offered a huge sum of money to use his inn for a special event, but warned the man that anyone who went upstairs to watch would die.
Sure enough, as the party continued past midnight, the innkeeper went upstairs, looked inside the door, and dropped dead. He had witnessed the devil’s wedding.
The house had been empty for years, but those who stayed there speak of strange paranormal occurrences. An old woman who wakes people up in the middle of the night asking for food, a Soviet-era airman…it’s no surprise that this building was used by KGB officers during the Soviet occupation from Tallinn.
People report hearing voices, footsteps and “party” sounds, only to find the upstairs rooms completely empty. Even the people who sleep in the apartment as guests have experienced horrible nights of ghostly activity. It just made me want to stay there! I booked it, flew to Tallinn and investigated the building where all the ghost walks and tour groups stop outside.
Dead Air was formed in 2009 by university friends Rob Davies and Chris Felton, originally as a radio show on Newcastle-based FM station NE1fm. The show was originally based on encouraging callers to talk about their own experiences and opinions about the paranormal, as well as monthly live broadcasts from some of the scariest places in the Northeast.
Chris works alongside Alan Robson, the host of Metro Radio’s Nightowls and Sky TV’s ‘Scariest Places on Earth’, and plans to make a full return to the show in 2021. Rob has served as a radio presenter with NE1fm into the music scene, but is now 100% committed to creating paranormal content for the channel.
