The 13th century walls, towers and bastions enclosing the Old Town are truly amazing. They are spectacularly well preserved, giving so many photo opportunities. There are a couple of places that, for a small fee, you can walk on a section of the wall, get...More

We walked the section of the wall that was available. You have an excellent view of the Old Town and can take amazing pictures.So, so well preserved.

There are several areas where the wall is still intact and it's pretty amazing. If you are in old town it's worth a walk to see. But would not make a special trip if not in the area.

The Town Walls are beautifully kept and on some of them you can do a walk along the top (€3-€4) with some nice views of the old town.

For a small fee you can ascend the towers and walk along some small stretches of the town walls, a fun experience.

There are several areas where you can see the medieval fortification walls. Interesting, but not a destination spot. And now typically obscured by a variety of artists, souvenir vendors and tour groups.

This is a mueum now and not a Town Hall but is still called a Town Hall. It is in the Square and is now a museum

Any visit to Tallinn should include visiting the remaining sections of the old Medieval Walls and Towers. The best section is located off Gumnaasium in the lower section of the old town

Probably impossible for you to explore Tallinn without coming across the town walls at least once or twice. In some parts you can walk along the top for a nice view.

This is definitely one of the more interesting parts of the old town - what remains of the old medieval wall with its old cobbled walkways. The area is lined with artists and jewellers etc. selling their wares, and yes, with tourists too!

We had a bus ride from the ferry to downtown. It was included with our tour but it is a very walkable and compact city. It's a great place to pick up hand made gifts at any price range.

There are free bits and bits that have a small charge. We paid for a small section because there were other things to see there,. You just need to wander around the town and everthing is clearly signed and you just stumble... More
