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.

This stretch of the city walls is open to visitors, so ascend via the Hellemann Tower and parade up and down the 200 or so metres of walkway. The view isn’t particularly impressive and there’s... Read more
