Town Wall, Tallinn

(4.3/5 based on 700+ reviews on the web)
Part of Tallinn's old town World Heritage Site and replete with defensive gates, Town Wall is one of the most complete examples of this kind of structure in the world. Originally constructed in the mid-13th century, the wall has undergone several upgrades, increasing in thickness and height to its current size. Wander through the town and along the 1.85 km (1.15 mi) length of the medieval wall as you examine its 20 different towers and multiple imposing entry gates. You'll get an up-close look at the structures that helped to defend Tallinn for centuries, and you can even walk on top of the wall for 200 m (656 ft) for sweeping views of the rest of the city. Be sure to stop by the "nun's tower," Sauna tower, and Kuldjala tower, as they are open to the public. To visit Town Wall on your trip to Tallinn, use our Tallinn itinerary planner.

  • 2欧门票去看下也不错,楼梯绕上去还好,下来有点小晕。上下估计十分钟就够了。售票老太太特别和蔼可亲,临走时会说“nice day to you”。取得当天天气不错,蓝天下,城墙很美。 
  • Old Town Wall is mid evil, thick quite impressive surrounding Tallin. It is used for posting the information, news of the day. 
  • Super nice old town, the local tour guide has shown very nice old town and everything that belongs to us. You have a beautiful view over the city of the Statdmauer
