Tallinn Town Hall

Nothing says power like the impressive, Gothic Town Hall that dominates Medieval Tallinn's main square. It was built in 1402-1404 as a meeting place for the ruling burgermeisters and has been a show piece of the city ever since. 

Nowadays the Town Hall is the only intact Gothic town hall in Northern Europe. It's used mainly for concerts or for entertaining visiting kings or presidents. In July and August it's open to visitors as a museum. The structure's interior is truly impressive, featuring colourful meeting halls, vaulted ceilings, intricate wood carvings and some of the city's most prized art treasures, including the famed Tristan and Isolde carved bench. Head down to the cellars for exhibitions during the summer season.

Look closely at the top of the spire to spot the Old Thomas (in Estonian Vana Toomas) weather vane, a symbol of Tallinn who has been standing at attention here since 1530. From June to August climb up the 64-metre tower to get some amazing Old Town views.

Free entrance to Town Hall and its tower with Tallinn Card.
