A well-preserved old wall circulates the old town. Inside the town hall and the market in front of it. Along the wall, there are day-to-day crafts shops.

Lots of craft stalls along the wall, many of them selling similar things. No paintings when we visited. People are very helpful and you can bargain. Nice presents.

The entry fee without the Tallinn card is 3 Euros for an adult. The climb up to the highest part of the tower gets quite narrow, and it is ideal that you have both hands available to support yourself up the high and narrow stairs....More

Wall is nice and interesting. The man giving the tickets (if gives at all as he seems to enjoy collecting money without receipt) is rude, does not greet or thanks for the purchase.

Some parts of the wall is market areas. At some parts artist have put up their paintings for sale. We didn't go up on the wall for the views but saw many people doing that. All in all its quite picturesque.

There are a lot of the original town wall left and we spent a lot of time walking along it. The walls are amazing and in pretty good shape! I suggest getting off the beaten path and walking along them!

Walk alongside or, in place, on top of the ancient city wall, which still rings most of the city. It also hosts some interesting market stalls, with parks and flower gardens on the outer side.

part of the wall for all who is coming into the old town. A real cobble stone walk, so do be careful especially if you are wearing heels. Lots of street vendors there too

This old wall is a stunning example of old time Talinn city. Today local artists sell their wares along the stretch of the wall. Dry cool. Be warned- the street itself has some of the worst cobblestone in the area. Very tough on wheelchairs and...More

This beautiful old wall and tower are open to the public to walk along. There are very good views from the top of the tower over the old city.

We had a bus ride from the ferry to downtown. It was included with our tour but it is a very walkable and compact city. It's a great place to pick up hand made gifts at any price range.
