For a small fee it is possible to climb to the tower and enjoy beautiful views over the roofs of Tallinn and walk on the city wall. I really relished and can recommend.

We enjoyed walking here, viewing the fortifications and sitting while soaking in the view. Fun to climb around and a lot of places to peek out at the scenery.

Like the rest of the walls this is a great thing to look at. The tower punctuates the wall and makes it more interesting. Worth a look.

As part of our whirlwind day to Tallinn we opted to pay the 10 Euros for the four of us to climb the stairs about 1.5 stories up on to the ramparts of the wall. The entrance is half way through the walkway so you...More
