The whole building is inaccessible for mobility aids. The Town Hall has a very steep and long staircase to the 2nd floor. A staircase lift will hopefully be installed in 2015/2016.

Nothing says power like the impressive, Gothic Town Hall that dominates medieval Tallinn's main square.

It was built in 1402-1404 as a meeting place for the ruling burgomeisters and has been a showpiece of the city ever since. Nowadays the Town Hall – the only intact Gothic town hall in Northern Europe – is used mainly for concerts or for entertaining visiting kings or presidents.

Look closely at the top of the spire to spot the Old Thomas (in Estonian Vana Toomas) weather vane, a symbol of Tallinn who has been standing at attention here since 1530.

In July and August the Town Hall is open to visitors as a museum. The structure's interior is truly impressive, featuring colourful meeting halls, vaulted ceilings, intricate wood carvings and some of the city's most prized art treasures, including the famed Tristan and Isolde carved bench.

Entrance is free with Tallinn Card.

Perhaps I was lucky to once visit here in summer. It had not occurred to me that this iconic building would only be open by appointment outside of the summer. Not good enough, Tallinn! Read more
