Hellemann Tower and Town Wall

Add to Favourites Your favourite!

Climb this 14th-century tower and stroll atop its 200m stretch of Town Wall for fantastic views of Tallinn's medieval defences.

The three-storey tower, which stands adjacent Müürivahe street next to Old Town's knit market, dates back to the 14th century and at different times was used as a prison and a weapons store.

Nowadays it serves far more peaceful purposes: in addition to being a curiosity history-minded visitors, it houses an art gallery.  

Entrance is free with Tallinn Card.
