Full description

Welcome to Tallinn! If you want to immerse yourself in the exciting present and the great past of this beautiful medieval Hanseatic city, then I would like to invite you to an individual German-speaking city tour. 

You can explore one of the most beautiful and best-preserved late medieval cities in Europe on a 3- to 4-hour German-language walking tour, which is done individually - i.e. only for you as an ordered.

You will get to know the fascinating lower town - the former Hanseatic city - with its merchant and patrician houses, the numerous churches, its winding streets and the impressive town hall square.

The Domberg - also known as the Upper Town - impresses with its representative administrative and government buildings, parliament and embassies, the Orthodox Nevsky Cathedral and the Evangelical Cathedral Church. 

From here, at the end of the tour, you will have unique views of the lower town with its city walls and fortification towers, modern Tallinn, the offshore islands and the surrounding Baltic Sea.

During the guided tour you will not only immerse yourself in the history of Tallinn, in which the Germans occupy a special place, but also get information about the current situation of the country and its inhabitants. 

Questions are very welcome! In addition, I am happy to give you practical information for a good café or a restaurant away from the tourist crowds, shopping or other "insider tips" - if desired.

This tour is suitable for all ages. Breaks can be installed at any time on request. People with physical disabilities are welcome.

  • Private guided tour
  • Hotel pickup and drop-off
  • Entrance to the Cathedral Church (highly recommended; €2 per person)
  • Possible transfers/trips outside the city center (if desired)

Our tour guide Volker gave us a varied, historically sound and culturally instructive tour of beautiful Tallinn on an individually guided city tour. He gave us a very good insight into the city, country and people - and gave us enough time for questions. We recommend. Any time.
