Tallinn has a lot of their citywalls still standing up and in a good condition. For 3 euro you can go up in one of the towers and walk a little bit over the city wall. But it's really a small distance: only 200 meters! So maybe it's a little bit expensive. In my opinion it's worth it though, because... More

When you are in Tallinn's Old Town the Old Wall from Medieval Tallinn is something that you cannot miss. Tkake time to explore many instances when you you can climb inside or above it, to enjoy the various museums and bars and restaurants inside it and next to it. Check your map or guide book for all the choices.

Certainly the largest portion of a city wall that we have walked alongside. It forms a backdrop for some artisanal shops, and some tourist shops as well. You get the feeling of the past being balanced with the opportunities for Estonia.

Views of the medieval walls and towers were possible, along with access to the narrow streets paved with cobblestones. There was a festival in the central square when I visited.

A walk along the town walls provided a great place to view Tallinn and with information boards placed along the walk the views were explained well. There is a roof over the walkway which proved great as it rained during my visit. Well worth a visit

Take a guided tour + learn about the many uses of this ca 400(?) year old tunnel system. If you do not have a jacket the museum supplied blankets. It's chilly down there.

There are many different areas to walk the walls, but it is worth the effort but steps up can sometimes be hazardous

these walls were here to protect the city in ancient times, so the walls are as all the other walls in the middle ages period, grey, big and still standing. However its nice to get a few photos of them and have a walk either around it on the inside or outside of the walls.

Do not expect more than the authentic old building of a wall and the view. Be prepared to climb some big stairs.
