Visit this portion of the wall connecting Nunna, Sauna and Kuldjala towers to imagine guarding the town against medieval invaders.

With 1.9km of its original city wall and 20 defensive towers wall still standing, Tallinn boasts one of Europe’s best preserved medieval fortifications. In fact, a large part of what gives Old Town its fairytale charm is the system of walls and towers that surrounds it.

To get a look at the wall from the inside, head to these three towers at the northwest corner of Old Town. Here visitors can climb up and explore the towers and wall, as well as enjoy a picturesque view of the red-tiled roofs of Old Town.

Work on the town's defences first began in 1265, but the current outline of the wall dates to the 14th century. By its heyday in the 16th century, the wall was 2.4 km long, 14 to 16 metres high, up to three metres thick, and included 46 towers. 

Today roughly half of the original towers still loom over Old Town, evoking images of heroic knights and damsels in distress. Many of the Town Wall’s towers serve as museums, while a few others provide opportunities for adventure for kids and teen visitors.

The best places to see the wall from the outside are the Patkuli viewing platform on Toompea and Tornide väljak (Towers’ Square), a park area near the train station.

Free with Tallinn Card.

"Unique walk - very wheelchair unfriendly"

August 30, 2018, by rightfoot

This old wall is a stunning example of old time Talinn city. Today local artists sell their wares along the stretch of the wall. Dry cool. Be warned- the street itself has some of the worst... Read more

"Tower views over the old city"

There is a nice scenic walk along the outside of the well, and near the end you can pay to climb up onto it and several of the towers. Lovely history and lots of good photos. Read more
