“Well preserved and impressive walls”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2013

We loved the walk along the well preserved and impressive medieval city walls of Tallin. The wall with its numerous towers and narrow streets with well preserved old buildings give you a good feeling of how life in the medievals must have been. Most towers have some dedicated exhibitions, like about armpry and weapons. However, each tower comes with an entrance fee if you do not have the Tallinn Card. May become quite expensive in the end for a family...

“Beautiful view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2013

The view from the town wall view points marked on the tourist map are lovely. We enjoyed the gates also and some of the narrow streets just inside the wall are a lot of fun to explore.

“Reminds me of Switzerland”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2013

Switzerland has many of these old walls and towers protecting their cities. These old structures fascinate me.

“Very Impressive”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2013

The wall is no longer complete as portions have been removed by past occupiers, however, over 1.5km of wall and towers still survives even if all the gates have gone. This was a very serious defensive wall of substantial height and large towers at regular intervals. Loved it!
