This is the place to go to get great views of the city with spires. There is usually a crowd here, at least there were on both occasions I visited.

As you walk through the old town you will come across Toompea, lots of churches, viewing areas, you can’t miss it. Wear comfortable shoes. Quite a lot steep steps.

Just the foot trip through Old Town towards the Hill is worth this location. Do not forget to visit Toompea park (Dome Park) while you are there. The climb needs good footwear!

I walked up here during my historic walking tour of Old Town and loved the view from up here. When you visit Tallin you really should walk up here!

This hill provides a lovely view over the old town of Tallinn. There are several vantage points where you can get a wonderful photo of the colourful houses with their red roofs
