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.

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.
