We were travelling with 6 grandchildren - aged 6 to 15 - and surprisingly they wanted to climb to the Toompea not just once but twice! They preferred the view from there in the evening with all the lights below in the old town Tallinn...More

We visited in February so lots of snow. We enjoyed the views, parks and castle. Spent a good few hours wandering around and went in the domed church.

A wonderful, winding, meandering walk through Old Town uphill to the viewpoint over the rooftops of the city. The walk encompasses stone steps past ancient walls and buildings. The view is worth the effort. Bring a camera but spend the time taking in the view.

Many important buildings can be found here. This in good place to visit as walking tour. The church is very nice inside, don't miss it. There are also nice terraces where you can see the whole city.

Lovely and romantic place to visit. At the winter time you can have gluhwein and enjoy the view. You have a opportunity to see whole town above and if you like, take a walk to nearby townhall. There is a good selection of local gifts.

On Toompea Hill there are lots of nice houses, orthodox church and at least the Finnish Embassy. There is a ”terrace” on the hill with great view over the old town and to harbour.

There are actually a few ways up, but they are all steep and some involve stairs. I would take the road not the stairs, the ones I stumbled on to walk up are not only steep, they are uneven. Start in Freedom Square and... More

You could take a cab from old town and ask them to drop you at the crossroad of Toompea and Falgi Tee street. You still have to walk about 400 metres from this junction. The first 50 metres will be slightly hilly but the... More
