Tallinn Town Hall, Tallinn

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.

  • For 5 euros (because it is not a part of TallinnCard in winters), you can get to see the basement and walk upto the top of the tower. You have to take an appointment, but the guide makes it worth it.  more »
  • Very similar to a miniature copy of the Doge's Palace in Venice. A good, likable. There are colorful restaurant in the ancient style. Highly recommend visiting for a snack.

  • Located next to the town hall square. It is the oldest town hall in the whole of the Baltic region and Scandinavia. Its construction started in the 13th century and was completed in the year 1404. The height of the tower is 64 metres.
  • Wonderful old Town square. During Xmas, there is a nice and lovely Xmas market. There are many restaurants around with different kinds of food. Really beautiful and staying in there is really pleasurable
  • Great building with quite a bit of history, though not much to see or do around it.
  • Nice architecture. Good blend of old and new
  • 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.
