Tumble down the rabbit
Why locals love it
In the old days, the tunnels were used for various purposes. In the 17th and 18th centuries they had to shelter men, ammunition and supplies or hide troop movements from the watchful eye of the enemy. We don't really know the exact length of the tunnels underneath the Old Town, but today 380 of these underground passages are open to visitors.
Why you should visit it
For a really interesting experience we suggest you sign up for a tour of the tunnels at the Kiek in de Kök tower (yeah, we know it sounds dirty). The underground passages are something you won't soon forget. You can traverse the tunnel network inside a small rail cart, bombarded by sounds and images from Tallinn's long and complex past.
Make your own dragster car, straw whistle or DNA from marzipan or gummy bears.
