"Hellemann Tower and city walls" Defensive Walls Tip by call_me_rhia

Defensive Walls, Tallinn: 36 reviews and 102 photos


Hellemann Tower is more than a tower ? in the sense that hardly anyone visits it to visit a tower ? people pay the entrance fee to be able to climb up to the top of the town wall and walk along a 200-metre stretch of it. It?s definitely not recommended if you are scared of heights. View from the top, admittedly, are not that fantastic, but I really enjoyed the opportunity of seeing from up-close how the defensive walls looked like in the Middle Ages.

The tower is open Mon-Sun 10-18 and in August 2010 it cost 30 EEK (adults) and 20 EEK (children) to get in.
