A good walk up

A good walk across the old town, do not miss it. You get some good views from here as well, and some excellent photo-ops :)

Toompea Hill can be incredibly busy, especially with the guided tours, however if you visit between these times then the views are incredible of the terracotta tiles across the city. Well worth the hill climb to get up there!

This is another worthwhile spot to visit. The views over the roof tops are magnificent and on a clear day you can see a very long way.

It's a very small place just 4-5 streets, but it really worth to climb over there. The cathedrals are spectacular, and the views of the old town from there are just spectacular

Nice views over the city. Easy to get to and has several souvenir shops nearby. There is a toilet in the jewelry shop but they will change you 1€ to use. So make sure you go first.

Absolutely one of the greatest attraction of Tallin, besides the great view of the old town, you can also enjoy the great pass way toward the hill ... you can see the old town from two part of the hill try to enjoy both of them, they are connected by a narrow alley. strongly recommended

Getting here is much easier that what it looks like. It is not a climb, 10 minutes walking from the center. Here you can enjoy a nice view

This is a fairly easy gradual climb and offers a magnificent view of both upper and lower Taliin as well as the Baltic.

It gets crowded at the top of the hill but it's well worthwhile the visit just for the views of the surrounds. Lovely views of the rooftops down across the city.
