Tallinn's city wall is the medieval defensive border of the Lower Town which surrounded the heart of the city from the 13th century and developed along with it thereafter. In the 16th century the city wall was one of the most robust in Northern Europe. Its construction was influenced by both Danish and German order fortress architecture.

Today around 1.85 km of the wall remains, including 20 towers and four gateways. You can even walk along some of the wall – you can access it at Nunnatorn (the Nun's Tower), explore Sauna and Kuldjala towers and enjoy the views that open out over the Old Town.
