The Red Tower is Pärnu’s oldest structure. Since November 2020, the tower houses a visitor centre with a panorama cinema, which provides an introduction to the history of Pärnu.
Built in the early 15th century, the corner tower of the city wall was both a fortification and a prison. The outer and inner walls of the stone tower were covered with red bricks, thereby inspiring the tower’s name.

! The architecture of a medieval tower places significantly restricts accessibility! Before buying your ticket, please make sure that narrow and steep stairs and high thresholds will not create an obstacle for making a visit to the Red Tower.
! Since only a limited number of visitors can be allowed in the Red Tower at a time, it may happen that additional people cannot be allowed to enter the tower when you arrive. In order to prevent this, we recommend that you book your visit by phone or email. We look forward to welcoming you!! If your group is comprised of more than 10 people, it is necessary to make a reservation.
