Tallinna Raekoda, Tallinn

4.3
Government Building · Architectural Building
Gothic architectural style defines Tallinna Raekoda, a 15th-century building with a 64 m (210 ft) tall tower crowned by "Old Thomas," a weather vane that has come to serve as a symbol of Tallinn. Explore the network of rooms within, complete with decorative pillars, arched ceilings, and fireplaces, and take in the setting that saw many of the city council's most important decisions. You can climb the 115 steps up to the tower's belfry, from where you'll get a sweeping view of the square below and the city's many spires. Keep in mind that public access to the building varies by season, so be sure to check the website to ensure it's open. Our Tallinn trip itinerary maker website makes visiting Tallinna Raekoda and other Tallinn attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • The Tallinn old city hall has some nice works of art inside, information about the city and building history. Most of the spaces in the building are empty, and there isn't so much to read about...  more »
  • Avoid the overpriced and mediocre food but this is a good place for a drink in the sun watching the World go by.  more »

  • Nice place to see a sunset, very quiet and calm. But it looks very abandoned, not sure if it isn't abandoned indeed.
  • Need a place to land your helicopter? Here is one.
