Get a Tallinn card and save euros. This is a great walk along the wall looking down all around. You can also climb three turrets along the wall one has amazing views from the top

For a few Euro you can climb up a steep metal staircase to reach the top of the city walls. You can walk a few metres in each direction and look down on the people in the road below but see little else.

This is one of the ways to see the old town from up above by walking along part of the town wall. For a few euros you get to climb the tower, see some medieval exhibits and walk on a strech of planks. It's free...More

This was my first time walking on the old town walls and it was worth it. The views are nice and the overall experience too. Cost is low. Some of the steps inside the tower are quite steep.

Not sure if worth going up to walk the short walk. You can see it pretty well for free from the street. The little kiosks along the side peaked my curiosity thought....
