I climbed the town wall in two places. One (near the sweater sellers) allows you to walk along the wall for quite a distance for about a Euro. The other, was up the top of the Short Leg, where you can get a coffee or hot wine sitting at a little table on the top of the wall, under the... More

On way in to Old Town, thick fortification walls. Just trying to imagine their construction made me tired. Stop, take a piucture and then continue into town

A very interesting piece of the past history of Tallinn. It has an accompanying Museum which I found very informative. It is sited next to a nice green park on one side and the old city with its tourist attractions on the other. Well worth a visit.

A bit of a climb to get to the top but well worth the time and admission fee. Very good if you are a keen photographer, great views on a fine day

We walked along the walls or, at least, where possible. True, some towers, or the Kiek in de Kök are quite photogenic, other parts are less interesting. But if the sun shines, get that camera to work overtime.

There are a few sections of the town walls where it is possible to pay a fee and then walk along the wall between towers. Views are pretty good and restoration has been performed quite effectively. Worth paying 3 EUR to experience.

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.
