Tallinn Town Hall, Tallinn

4.5
Gothic architectural style defines Tallinn Town Hall, a 15th-century building with a 64 m (210 ft) tall tower crowned by "Old Thomas," a weather vane that has come to serve as a symbol of Tallinn. Explore the network of rooms within, complete with decorative pillars, arched ceilings, and fireplaces, and take in the setting that saw many of the city council's most important decisions. You can climb the 115 steps up to the tower's belfry, from where you'll get a sweeping view of the square below and the city's many spires. Keep in mind that public access to the building varies by season, so be sure to check the website to ensure it's open. Our Tallinn trip itinerary maker website makes visiting Tallinn Town Hall and other Tallinn attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • Wow! Looks like you have stepped back in time. The Palace reigns at the heart of one of the most beautiful piaxze if not the most beautiful part of tallinn. Has a magical attraction with the Inns below it in medieval style and a worthy climb to the tower. A gem of 1400 (although partly restored)

  • After a walking tour of old town Tallinn, we had time to ourselves. We chose to sit outside at a cafe across from the Tallinn Town Hall. It's an ideal observation point to watch people and the flow of life in this beautiful city. After refreshments, we walked and visited various shops, bookstores, curious, etc. - of which there are plenty. A satisfying day for an all too short visit to Tallinn.
  • Stunning from the outside. Haven't had a chance to step indoors yet! Love the market which is held in the town square during Christmas time and summer. Always feel a little bit of magic here in Old Town Tallinn.
  • Great area! Beautiful historic building located on the main piazza.
  • Beautiful historic public square. Lots of restaurants and souvenir shops in the area.
  • Worth a visit. They only accept cash

Where to stay in Tallinn

As Estonia's largest city, Tallinn has a wide range of options for accommodation during your travels. Many of these--from economical bed and breakfasts to a luxury hotels--center within the Old Town or just outside of it, giving you easy access to historical sights and a range of activities. Get more for your money by venturing a little farther away; try a guesthouse in one of the surrounding areas for an authentic Estonian experience. Be sure to book accommodation in advance if you are traveling in the summer, as hostels, hotels, and bed and breakfasts are known to book up fast for the months of July and August. This is especially true for weekends from May through to September.
