Great views

Fab views of the town, went in the snow and on a clear day. Equally as lovely on both occasions. Great.

If you want to walk outside this is good for you. It does require good heath to be able to climb up. I think there would be more to see in the summer time there.

We caught a little train to the top and walked down which is a very easy walk. The views from both look outs are great. There are a few churches all are interesting as well as little shops and interesting finds. Don't go here because of the walk up as you can also get a taxi up and do what... More

Must visit - you can take very nice photos here! Start your round trip at the Nevsky cathedral, it takes about 30-40 minutes.

This hill is where some of the major attraction of Old Town Tallinn is located. From the hill, you could have a great view of Tallinn old town, Tallinn Harbour and Tallinn Bay.

You really should do this at least once - climb up to the Toompea Hill to see the whole Tallinn lie down on your feet! Also, the walking route to Toompea from the Central Square is really beautifull. Not to be missed when in Tallinn.

You can climb the hill either by stairs over the city wall, or by walking round through the old town. I would recommend the first time you go into the old town to go by the city wall. You will emerge at a old square with the most amazing view over the old city.
