The best-preserved Gothic example in Northern Europe, Tallinn Town Hall was built in 1404 and is today used as the city’s representative building, a museum and concert venue. The medieval spiral staircase leads you to the bell platform, 34 metres above the ground, from which you’ll enjoy amazing views over the Old Town and its environs.
Visitors can climb to the top of the 69-metre baroque belfry, which was built in 1779, to enjoy stunning views of the city.
This 15th-century tower spans six floors and showcases the development of Tallinn’s fortifications as well as medieval weapons and armour, which visitors can also try on.
This iconic Gothic church in Tallinn, which stands at 159 metres, was the tallest building in the world until 1625. Climbing the 232 steps to the top of its tower is well worth the effort.
There is plenty to discover for people of all ages at this museum: you can take a peek into farm houses dating from the 18th-20th centuries, a wooden chapel, an authentic village schoolhouse and windmills; take a ride with a horse; and try traditional Estonian dishes at the inn. Entry is free with your Tallinn Card.
On the evening of 23 June the museum will be celebrating midsummer. There will be bonfires, folk music and folk dancing, you can have a go on the village swings and little visitors can have fun playing games from the olden days. Tickets cost €14, but you get a 10% discount with your Tallinn Card.
