Visited this beautiful place at the end of the day, and the lady was keen to tell about each of the rooms once inhabited by the monks of the monastery. It was quite dark, so stepping into a couple of the rooms was done with a degree of apprehension, as I knew no- one else was there. On emerging back up the narrow stairway, the lady asked me if I had sang in the room below, as it was ‘good for energy’ because of the acoustics. Not being a singer, it was with with some reluctance, but because she was keen I did, and because I knew the building was empty, back down I went....I sing a very simple chant. The acoustics are simply amazing and transformed the poor sound that left me into something rather lovely! Do go, as a group and sing, or on your own, and be astounded.

Its a beautiful hidden place just in front of the access to the big wall. Its cheap the lady who is at the entrance speak several languages. It was worth to visit the several time I stayed in tallin for the day. Its peacefull and calm. Walking trough the different chambers make you feel calm and harmonius.

It’s easy to miss since it is hidden behind the wall but do search it out. A nominal fee grants you access to several ancient rooms hidden away. All are really neat but the library is truly amazing. You can visit the local artist and purchase a had made piece of art if you wish. All in all, it’s an incredible experience.

Hidden behind an entrance, with little signage, but once u step into the courtyard, it's amazing to find such a beautiful site there!
A lot of people tended to step in to take photos and then leave, but it's worth heading upstairs...even tho the Euro5 entrance fee may seem a little much!
The site is small, a few rooms which were the monks' dormitory, chapel, and both upstairs and downstairs are the old library...all very interesting rooms with such history, which is told to u by the lady who meets you when u enter.
She is truly passionate about this, so take the few mins to listen to her which will give u a little more insight into the history of his monastery.
As other posters have said, it's disappointing to find that there's a separate entrance fee for the cloisters and courtyard next door!

... but I got to see it for free. It seems that there is a 3 Euro fee to enter the cloister, but when I was there, no attendant was on duty, the door was open, so I slipped in. It's one of the oldest buildings in the city, but apparently hasn't been fully restored since a band of Lutherans attacked in the 1500s. It's quiet, peaceful, overgrown, with a few panels detailing the history of the site.
