I am a sucker for 'medieval city wall walking' and Tallinn's doesn't disappoint. Walk the walls, climb the towers, take lots of pictures, enjoy the view ... and pretend you are a medieval warrior defending the city against invaders. You know you want to.

You can clearly see 20 Towers and 4 Gateways. We even walked on one of these walls, and climbed one of the Towers. The construction of these walls was influenced by Danish and... More

Could not think of a better walk to do than walk around parts of the old city walls on a sunny day...

You can actually walk a stretch of the wall, and climb the stairs into a couple of the towers, but the wall is ever-present as you walk the old town.

It costs €3 to walk around the wall. You get good views over the city and can view the war room which doesn't have much in it other than a model of a 13C caterpault

Every time I come to Tallinn I have also to walk besides the walls. I never get tired of the whole Old Town.

There are 3 or 4 places in Tallin where you can walk along the old city walls and have great views of the city all at various costs, I had 3 days in Tallinn so I was able to spend a bit of time looking at the various options and choosing the one that I thought had the best views,... More

Well worth the few euros to climb the stps and walk along the old wall. An incredible area to just wander, look at the shops hidden in old buildings, behind old doorways, takes you back in time
