What travellers are saying
- Did a day trip to Tallinn from Helsinki. Was truly impressive on how well preserved the old town was.
The town is small and you can easily walk around while enjoying some the local dishes by stopping by one of the many pretty cafes.
Make sure to check out the Beautiful Christmas market in Old Town.
Lots of Christmas theme gifts which you can buy from Christmas decorations to chocolates.
Make you try the hot wine and local sausages. It’s an wonderful way to warm yourself up.
Just be careful if you going with kids as it’s pretty crowded and it’s easy to get separatedWritten 15 January 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- This was my husband's pick so I wasn't sure what to expect, but really enjoyed our time at this museum.
We perhaps spent a little too much time reading all of the boards describing the different boats and buoys hanging from the roof when we first entered, but soon found ourselves in a museum with many immersive games and experiences that could entertain a wide range of ages.
We spent almost two hours there and only left because it was closing, we easily could have spent another hour.Written 18 January 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- This area is about 20-30 metres higher than its surroundings. In the folklore it’s known as the „tumulus mound over the grave of Kalev.” It has a rich history and today it’s the center of the Government of Estonia and the Parliament. We walked there in a sunny day so it was really nice. Nearby we took some photos of Tall Hermann tower with the flag of the tower which is one of the best-known symbols in Estonia of the government in force. It’s worth a visit.Written 30 November 2022This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- We stayed near this place so we saw it several times and sat on a bench to enjoy the sunshine. It’s one of the most beautiful main square in Europe with the Gothic town hall and other nice historic buildings. It’s very popular for tourists and local people, there are lots of restaurants, bars and cafes. It’s a must-see attraction.Written 29 November 2022
- Beautiful building but much of the interior is roped off. No photo permitted but it is easy to take‘sneaky’ snaps. The gift shop attached is disappointing. The staff were a little stiff and indeed rude to men who forgot to take off their hats! Not everyone knows that that should be done. Perhaps their short tempers are connected to the hostility to all things Russian at the moment! On a slightly political note, most of the buildings surveyed the cathedral fly Ukrainian flags.Written 21 January 2023
- wonderful park, lush and green, just so sad that all the museums on the terrain, are closed on a Monday.Written 18 August 2022
- Great place. We really enjoyed it with my family. Couple of hours passed without noticing. There are staff member all around, ready to help with whatever questions you have. We also managed to see a movie in Planetarium.Written 30 January 2023
- In Tallinn we can see 26 bastions and 8 church-towers. The tower of St. Olaf’s Church isn’t only one of them, but it’s the most remarkable and the highest one. It was the highest building in 1800s with its 160 metres height. It was collapsed and rebuilt several times and now it’s ’”only” 123 metres. But you can see it from everywhere and the view is fantastic from the tower.Written 10 December 2022
- One of the best experiences I’ve had in Tallinn and the best museum I’ve been in. Must see if you’re in Tallinn. Go for the full day, explore the insides of the buildings as well.Written 14 December 2022
- As I know Tallinn is the only city in North-Europe, where the medieval town wall preserved along the entire length of it with 26 towers. I think it’s fantastic to walk along it and climb up to see the wonderful panorama. We took lots of photos.Written 29 November 2022
- This tower is amazing. The food was great and the view was fantastic. The best part though was the staff. The server was one of the best servers I have ever experienced, he was friendly and went above and beyond for us. If you are in the area, this is a must.Written 28 November 2022
- This museum is housed in a wonderful purpose-built space designed by a Finnish architect. The art chronicles modern art through the tortured history of Estonia, from brief independence, through occupation by the Soviets, then the Nazis, then the Soviets again, and finally independence again. Each change generated a dramatic shift in what "art" was acceptable. Now independent again, they make no secret of their sympathies in the Ukraine-Russia war, as they fear another occupation by Russia.Written 9 January 2023
- It’s an important part of the Town Wall. It was built in 1475, its height 38 metres, the walls are 4 metres thick. This funny name means that the defenders of the tower could peek into the kitchens of the lower town. Now we can see some cannonballs from 1577 in the walls. Nowdays it houses the Tallinn City Museum's exhibition on the history of the city wall. I think it’s worth a visit.Written 4 December 2022
- They was really helpful and help out our group when we had a day in tallinn. Friendly and approachableWritten 23 January 2023
- This Town Hall is considered to be the most beautiful monument of late Gothic architecture preserved in its original state in the entire Baltic region. I think it’s true, I like it very much with Old Thomas (Vana Toomas) at the top of the tower (it is a wind indicator). He was a medieval brave hero, protector of the city. The building is located in the heart of the city. It’s a must-see attraction!Written 30 November 2022
