Just go along with NUNNE street, there will be some steps up to the hill. It takes less than ten mins to reach the top of the hill, where you can oversee part of old town. And most amazing thing is, you can also see sunset here. It's really worth coming here to see sun going down to the sea...... More

Tallin's oild town is magnificent. Make sure you spend ample time just strolling around, up and down right and left. It is not as large and very manageable.

There are 3 different areas on top of the hill that overlook the Old Town and the city where you can get great pictures of everything

If you're in Tallinn you have to walk up to Toompea Hill and get the fantastic view of Tallinn from both look out spots. Also enjoy the narrow streets and beautiful churches.

Loads of embassies as well as the seat of parliament. Nice view from up there too. The walk up might be a bit challenging for some but it is not far. There is a road up for vehicles and stairs lined with souvenir shops

This is one of the best places in Tallinn to have a panoramic view of the city. To some a rather steep climb, but it is worth it.

Although this is the highest part of the city it"s not a mountain to climb,there are several ways up, there is a road that slopes up from near the tourist information office that is nice as there are several artists displaying their paintings on the wall by the side of the road,you can also go up from behind the cross...
