This is a historic wall built around Tallinn city, contains watch towers (the most famous being Fat Margaret) and can be tracked around by city trams.

Firstly the sign reads its a 2km city wall walk. No. Its about 100m very maximum and takes around 1-2 minutes to walk from one side to the other, of which you can barely see anything. The city wall is in different sections the part we visited is down by McDonalds and costs 3 euro entrance. RIP OFF. we were... More

The portion of the walls that one can walk on is rather short and it offers views facing inside the old town not outside. It's OK but there are many more attractive sites to see in the Medieval Old Town of Tallinn...If you have seen all the rest and still have force to spare you may wish to add this... More

We visited Gdansk whilst on a cruise of the Baltic. Next to Tallin, it remains one of the most memorable experiences of our trip. The coach dropped us about 100 yards from the old bridge.

The town wall is hard to miss - it encompasses much of the old city. Take a moment to reflect upon its history & appreciate its own beauty.
