    Tallinn Town Hall

    Tallinn Town Hall is the oldest city hall in North-Europe and the only preserved one in Gothic style. During the year 2022, Tallinn Town Hall celebrates the 700th anniversary of its first mention in 1322. The story of the building dates back to the 13th century and it was completed, in its current form, in 1404. The Town Hall has been a showpiece of the city ever since and it is still used for festive ceremonies and concerts.

    In July and August, the Town Hall is open to visitors from the cellar to the attic.

    The fancy Gothic arches and precious works of art reflect the wealth and ideals of the former Hanseatic town. The rarest items are the benches of aldermen from the 14th and 15th century.

    Entrance is free with Tallinn Card.

      Their website says, that visiting is possible only for those, who have booked visits via email. However they don't answer emails.

    • OK for a short visit

      The Tallinn old city hall has some nice works of art inside, information about the city and building history. Most of the spaces in the building are empty, and there isn't so much to read about... Read more comments
