“Pleasant Stroll”
Reviewed June 21, 2013

Climbing to the top of the Tower and having a stroll on the wall will make you feel like a medieval guard observing the suroundings.
If you pay attention, you'll notice that plenty of pigeons are nesting in the walls.
Worth the experience !!

“A piece of history”
Reviewed June 16, 2013

The old town wall is probably one of the best preserved in the Baltics. Surrounding the city, you can take a tour of it and view the old city from the top of it. There are a number of levels at various towers, interesting to experience it.

“A classic walled town”
Reviewed May 25, 2013

The wall gives the town a medieval atmosphere. Presumably built for defensive reasons, it encloses the old town like a glove and is sufficiently high to act as a strong deterrent to invaders. Massively thick in places with a number of outlook towers dotted around. It has been beautifully preserved and does give the impression of security. It gives the town a lovely cosy atmosphere.
