3-Hour Tallinn City Fortifications Tour
The limestone walls were built around the city between the 13th and 16th centuries. In their heyday the fortification had a total length of around 4 km and the walls were equipped with almost 50 towers and gates. Half of them are still preserved today. Tallinn has the longest remaining fortification wall in the Baltic States.
The tour follows the remains of the city walls and gives an idea about the willingness to protect the medieval Tallinn (formerly Reval). You will discover towers, ramparts and gates. As witnesses of the past, these constructions give the old town its magical medieval charm. If you want to, the fortification towers can be climbed in several places. Some even offer a museum, like cannon towers Kiek in de Kök and Dicke Margarethe. There are also lookout points with great views of the red gabled roofs of the old town.
The three-hour walking tour along the wall also shows how well the medieval old town (lying within the city walls) is preserved. The entire route takes 3 hours. The tour is suitable for participants of all ages. Coffee breaks can always be taken. Good shoes are recommended. Pick up from the hotel / airport / port.
