Town Hall Square, Tallinn

(3,000+ reviews on the web)
Landmark
Surrounded by shops, restaurants, historical buildings, and its namesake structure, Town Hall Square 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 Town Hall Square at the forefront of your travel plans using our Tallinn trip itinerary planner.
