Our family (parents and older teens) toured the wall, and it gives you some great views of Old Town, the bay, and the newer parts of Tallinn. Lots of stairs, but a fun place to visit.

Very interesting to tour the walls. Some stories of tallin's past and amazing architecture. Not 100% complete around the old town but that doesn't really detract

Nearly missed it as has a humble entrance but once up there, totally amazing. You get lovely views of old town, get the medieval feel and get to burn off some calories by going up the stairs (not too many though, equivalent of 5th floor). Doesn't take more than half an hour to explore, but can stay longer if interested... More

Took the Patkuli trepp route down from the toompea castle, along the way to fat Margaret you will see a well built castle wall that still exists.

The sweater wall seems to be filled with sweaters made elsewhere. It's worth a look but nothing special to buy.

The system of walls and fortifications around the Old Town of Tallinn makes for a fascinating tour around the medieval part of the city, but the 'sweater wall,' Müürivahe, near Viru Gate is a great place for shopping. The ladies sell a variety of textiles: mostly made of local wool or linen. Increasingly, the sweaters are machine-made, though still with... More

This is a good example of a wall that surrounds every Medieval city. This one is just easier than most to see all the construction details and key points of interest. It is a real "textbook."

You don't have to walk on top of the wall but down at ground level. For the poor folks that felt they got ripped off, you should have gone on the outside to get great photos and avoid vendors. We looked at some of those walks but decided against it since we could see the end and had already taken... More

Excellent location to visit and get the fill of what had been on those days back in time. You will find art on the wall and this path will take you around the city into small streets and lots of discoveries. It is amazing that is still standing till today after so many wars, invations, and time itself.
