Tallinn Old Town walking tour
Duration 2 hours
Tallinn’s star attraction – its medieval Old Town – is absolutely jam-packed with historic charm and naturally tops the list of sightseeing priorities for first-time visitors. Built up from the 13th to 16th centuries when the city was a bustling Hanseatic trade hub, this UNESCO World Heritage site is loved for its winding cobblestone streets, old merchant houses, towering churches and half-hidden courtyards. The sturdy Town Wall and defensive towers that surround Old Town only add to its fairytale mystique. Walking tours typically take 1.5 to 2 hours to cover the most fascinating sights in both the Upper Town (Toompea) and Lower Town.
