There are several options for walking along the existing portions of the town wall. There is one at the north end of the old town near St. Olav's. It's more finished and includes a museum for 7 euros. Or there's a most authentic section of...More

It was nice to see this place, but as a tip - - - You could give more information of Tallinn history during the last centuries - - - there are so many interesting stories to tell to us tourists...

Tallinn is one of the few cities that really still have wall surrounding almost entire old town and wall being in good shape. You get good view over the city also. If you don't pay and walk on the top, from intersection Viru and Müürivahe...More

The cost of this is 3 euros each and there are a number of steep steps with narrow walls to navigate. The walk along the way gives great views of the city but it was very slippery as it had snowed the night before. Not...More

A well-preserved old wall circulates the old town. Inside the town hall and the market in front of it. Along the wall, there are day-to-day crafts shops.

Lots of craft stalls along the wall, many of them selling similar things. No paintings when we visited. People are very helpful and you can bargain. Nice presents.

The entry fee without the Tallinn card is 3 Euros for an adult. The climb up to the highest part of the tower gets quite narrow, and it is ideal that you have both hands available to support yourself up the high and narrow stairs....More

Wall is nice and interesting. The man giving the tickets (if gives at all as he seems to enjoy collecting money without receipt) is rude, does not greet or thanks for the purchase.

Some parts of the wall is market areas. At some parts artist have put up their paintings for sale. We didn't go up on the wall for the views but saw many people doing that. All in all its quite picturesque.

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

Tallin in 6 hours (1230pm to 6.30pm) (3 Replies)
Hi everyone good day. My family and I are taking the cruise from Helsinki across to Tallin in early Dec, 2018. We arrive in Tallin at 1230pm and have to board the ferry again at 6.45pm back to Helsinki. What can we do in 6 hours? We are 3 adults and 2 kids (4 years and 10 years old). Tentative Plan: - Lunch in Tallin Old Town - Town Hall Square - Toompea Hill - Alexander Nevsky Cathedral - Town Wall 1. Where can I join a FREE Tallin Walking Tour? We arrive on a Wed, not...More

Your plan is workable. 1. For free tours, have you tried googling? There may not be any available for your time and date, but it's easy to do a DIY tour. The Old Town is a fairly small area. 2. Karja Kelder on Väike-Karja (just off Town Hall Square) is a less touristy option in the heart of the Old Town. The day's special is dirt cheap, but you'll have to ask about it as it's only advertised in Estonian. Their standard menu is also well priced, particularly in view of the location. 3....More

Dubrovnik Card (2 Replies)
Hallo we will be in Dubrovnik for 3 days and are considering buying the Dubrovnik card. Question - can you enter and walk on the Dubrovnik Old Town Wall more than once or can you use the card only once for each free attraction covered by the card? We will be staying just outside the Pile Gate. Thank you for your help.

You can only use the card once per attraction.

Pickpocket at Old Town Wall (12 Replies)
Just a warning. My purse was taken from my handbag today as I descended the steps from the wall. My bag was across my chest, hanging by my left side and is not easy to open without a tug. I was coming down extra cautiously, one hand on each rail and may have been seen as vulnerable because of that. I did sense a tiny pulling sensation and partly looked back but thought maybe it had just caught on the rail. Couldn't see who was behind me without stopping and letting go of one rail. At the...More
