Maiden Tower, museum

The Maiden Tower, a part of the Kiek in de Kök Fortification Museum, has, over the years, been a defence tower, a dwelling, and a cafe. It is associated with numerous legends and ghost stories. The name comes from the name of the tower commander at that time, Hinse Meghe, and was later adapted into Maiden Tower in English. The tower was first mentioned as early as in 1373 and it has been reconstructed several times, but its unique architecture is still based on its trapezoidal floor plan. The defence passage running from the Maiden Tower to the cannon tower of Kiek in de Kök and Bastion Passages provides a unique opportunity to explore a large renovated part of the medieval and modern defence zone of Tallinn during one visit.
