We One of the best-preserved Medieval towns in Europe, Tallinn once had the largest and the strongest defence systems in Northern Europe and during our tour, you will get to see part of the defence wall and its towers.
We will start our tour from the site where you can see a stronghold of warrior monks from the 13th and 14th centuries. this site has been the center of power for more than 800 years and is now home to our parliament. The stronghold sits on a hill which, according to legend, is the burial mound of a giant hero called Kalev, and forms the upper part of the old town. This area served as the residence of German nobles for many centuries. Making our way up the hill, will see the city palace of these nobles, a house owned by our first president, the oldest schoolhouse in Tallinn, and the oldest church in mainland Estonia: the beautiful Russian Orthodox Church. We will also enjoy a magnificent view of the new city from the three viewing platforms in the vicinity.

Ingrid Aus

I live in Estonia near Tallinn, the capital city of Estonia. I am a certified tour guide and I have been doing tours in Tallinn's old town and in its surroundings for six years to different travel agencies. I have had English-speaking groups from the US, India, Egypt, UK, Canada, and Australia. I have also worked as a birding guide, introducing guests to birds and their songs in Tallinn and in our countryside. Additionally, I am accredited to conduct Museum Tours.


I love nature, our old town and I am interested in our history. But I am also interested in world history and how people live in different places today. I will not only tell you facts about history and buildings but I will also tell you real-life stories, about interesting people who have lived in Tallinn and about life in Estonia today!
