Väike-Kloostri tänav 1, Kesklinna linnaosa, Tallinn

REQUEST INFORMATION View on map

The oldest sections of Tallinn's city wall were built in the 13th century. During the next three centuries, it became one of the largest and strongest defence systems in entire Northern Europe.

More than half of the magnificent defence system has been preserved as a city wall - this includes 1.85 km of the wall, 26 defence towers, 2 gates and fragments of two front gates.
Patkuli viewing platform is a good place for examining the city wall, and a number of towers are open for visitors.
You have a chance to walk on a small section of the wall that connects the Nunne, Sauna and Kuldjala towers. The wall has a wonderful view of the Old Town and Toompea.

Good backdrop for photos. This is an easy walk from the cruise ship docks. This is co-located with the old town so you see this while enroute.

I have never seen such an intact city wall

I have never seen such an intact city wall from the middle Ages. it is so interesting that this survive. You ca walk around and read about all the different Towers that are still there.
