    The town hall as you would expect is situated next to th town hall square. The current building was completed in 1404 however records indicate that another town hall was situated at this site but in a different building as far back as 1322. in the summer months May - August you can climb the town hall tower free of charge from 11 - 6. the town hall itself is opened 10-4 mon-sat in july and august

    Oldest Gothic town hall in northern Europe

    Tallinn town hall

    The Town Hall in Tallin was finalized in 1404 and stands as an impressive front to the town Hall Square in the Old town. It is the oldest gothic town hall in northern Europe and is open to visitors daily (or maybe closed sundays) during the summer and the rest of the year after appointment. I understand you may enter the tower if you want to, but mind the bells!

    Tallinn`s late Gothic Town Hall building is one of the most famed symbols of the city.
    The Town Hall was established on the central square, probably at the beginning of 13th century. In 1402-1404, the building was substantially reconstructed.

    Town Hall

    Tallinn's civic life has been centred here at the southern edge of Town Hall Square since 1341, but the imposing Gothic building of today dates to 1404. Old Thomas, the weather vane who symbolises Tallinn, has been keeping watch since 1530. The town hall is still used for state functions and is often closed to the public.
