One of the best preserved medieval walls in Europe. Amazing to walk around and discover every small corner of the Old Town.
The walls are more intact and give you great views over the city. Easy to see why the old town was built in this commanding location. Enjoy walking around on your own, or find the student tour guide near the tourist office. Free to join a tour - give a tip at the end of what you wish!
Most tourists wander around the inside old town and miss the wonders that edge the town. The walls are intact in quite a few places with rondavel roofs on towers, gardens linking down to the moat, and renovated parts that you can climb and explore for minimal cost. It really is worth exploring away from the crowds.
It's amazing that so much of the town wall and the towers is intact. We have visited the Old Town in both Riga and Vilnius and Tallinn's Old Town is by far the most impressive.

It only cost 4 Euros for a family and it ok but it is very dirty - pigeon droppings everywhere. You really only need climb one tower as there is... More
The medieval walls and towers are visible from almost anywhere in the Old Town. Most of the gates have been altered, but the rest is original and complete. At times, in the right light it is as if the last 500 years never happened.
Tallinn has kept it's own atmosphere and the people are friendly and welcoming. Two lovely turrets make it seem like you are entering Disneyland! Have fun! The shop and restaurant people dress up in costumes, which add to the historical atmosphere.
We didn't do any of the walks on top of the walls, but we did plenty of walking along the walls and it is pretty amazing to see. Parts of it brings back all the fairytale stories that I grew up with. Spend the time walking around. Don't miss the street called Pikk Jalg. There are lots of great photo... More
