    Kiek in de Kök Fortifications Museum

    Kiek in de Kök Fortification Museum forms a complex over 500 m long that includes four medieval towers: the first artillery tower Kiek in de Kök, Maiden Tower, Marstall (Tallitorn) Tower, and the Short Leg Gate Tower. All connected with the wall walk with great views of the Old town. The museum continues with 17th-century underground passages, which also house the Carved Stone Museum. The Kiek in the Kök Tower provides an exciting overview of the defense history of the city. On the 2nd floor of the Maiden Tower, you can see how the towers were converted into apartment houses in the 19th century. You can also step into the artist`s studio. On the 4th floor of the tower and in the Gate Tower you get a taste of the past café culture of Tallinn.

    Free with Tallinn Card!

    During free Museum Sundays (07.07; 04.08; 01.09; 06.10; 03.11; 01.12) only the only the first floor of Kiek in de Kök, Bastion Passages, Maiden Tower, Stable Tower, and Gate Tower are open.

      There’s over 400 meters of passageway carved into the rock which has been used over the centuries from defence to shelter. There are videos to watch en route and an app to download which has audio... Read more comments

      I can only give a 3 points grade, as the main Tower is closed for renovations. The tunnel is a 5 points. Interesting and well made with history and it’s giving you a certain feeling. The passage to... Read more comments
