Kooli tänav-7, Kesklinna linnaosa, Tallinn

REQUEST INFORMATION View on map

To defend Tallinn from our neighbours and Estonians yearning for their former freedom, a protective wall had to be built.

The Loewenschede I tower, which was completed in 1373, had an outer diameter of 10.7 m and the walls were 1.55 m thick. By 1456, after the extension of the tower, the walls were 2.3 m thick, and the height had been increased to 24.2 m.

Currently, Asuurkeraamia's gallery and ceramics workshop are on the tower's ground and first floor. The third floor with its high vaulted ceiling and a fireplace is perfect for exhibitions, seminars, concerts, and performances. The floor easily accommodates 50 people. On the fourth floor, you can enjoy the view of Tallinn Old Town and Kalamaja.
