View on map

See the Old Town! The free audio guide tour 'The seat of power' gives an overview of the city's history, the peak of power, and the most famous hill in Tallinn. The route includes Tall Hermann, Pilsticker Tower and Stairs, Toompea slope, and Patkuli Stairs.

Complete the tour at your own pace, make stops whenever you want, and listen to interesting and educational stories on the web for free. We recommend taking the tour in the evening: The wall and towers of Tallinn's Old Town have received a light solution that awakens them to new life as darkness arrives.

In addition to 'The seat of power', you can find several other thematic tours on the Old Town website, each one more exciting than the other.
