This research aims to compare the conservation situation and the features of existing walled cities in Europe and China. Following are the results of 48 walled cities selected for this study. After considering the extended form of the city wall and the urban form of each walled city, cluster analysis was carried out for each walled city using city wall space, urban scale, and urban form as variables. The 48 walled cities were typified into 4 groups and finally, suggestions for the future conservation of each group were given based on the features of them.
