Tallinn Town Hall, Tallinn
(4.6/5 based on 2,600+ reviews on the web)
Surrounded by shops, restaurants, historical buildings, and its namesake structure, Tallinn Town Hall is one of the focal points for activity and culture in Tallinn. Dating to the early 15th century, the square features a number of Gothic-style architectural gems and streets that branch out from the center, leading to hidden courtyards, secluded gardens, and cobbled alleys. The town hall showcases arched doorways and a 64 m (210 ft) tall tower. You'll often find a great deal of activity in the square, ranging from performers to souvenir stalls; in fact, local legend has it that the world's first Christmas tree was raised here in 1441. Watch for the circular "compass" tile in the square, from where you can see Tallinn's spires rising above the tops of the surrounding buildings. Put Tallinn Town Hall at the forefront of your travel plans using our Tallinn trip itinerary planner.

  • Nice ancient building in the middle of the old town. During weekends there is a nice souvenir market in the square just next to it. Maybe not worth paying for going in the tower. Go to St Olaf church instead.
  • Beautiful and historical place to go.Must visit.In Old town
  • Beautiful town hall building with a town square all around it. Lots of patios around the square however they are a tourist trap and over price. You are better to walk a block away from the square.
  • A great square to have a look and take some pictures. The restaurants I do recommend to find on nearby streets.
  • Interesting building the view from the top is good.
