Charming Medieval Old Town Tallinn

Tallinn Old Town Walking Tour  – 3 hrs

Tallinn Old Town Shore Excursions – 3 hrs

Tallinn’s appeal is rooted in its rich history. Its UNESCO-protected old town has winding alleyways, ornate doorways, and medieval courtyards. Among Medieval Nordic cities, there’s none nearly as well-preserved as Tallinn, nor more dense with restaurants, cafés, and surprises.

Join our 3 hour Tallinn Old Town walking tour to discover how Kings, queens, and czars have walked the streets of the charming two-tiered city.

Tallinn once consisted of two feuding medieval towns separated by a wall. The upper town on the hill, called Toompea—was the seat of government ruling Estonia. The lower town was an autonomous Hanseatic trading center filled with German, Danish, and Swedish merchants.

Join the cool and young affluent crowd in search of foodie delights and historical settings. Tallinn old town is not all that big and is perfect for exploring galleries and craft workshops, too.

With its pastel-colored buildings all pretty in a row, the Tallinn’s Town Hall Square is reminiscent of pages from a children’s fairytale book.

From fabric makers to ceramics stores, paintings and artwork to jewelry artisans, if there’s an art that can be perfected with the hands, there’s almost certainly a workshop for it in the old town of Tallinn. Your local guide lives in Tallinn, so he knows the best places to show you as part of Tallinn old town walking tour.
