The walk up Toompea Hill takes about twenty minutes and is not too taxing - lots to see en route. At the top you can visit the famous church and there are three really good viewpoints which allow you to have panoramic views of the city - one of these looking out to the port is particularly well worth visiting....

Went for the tunnel tour. The tour was fun and informative. Like the environment. There is a small post office behind the orthodox church, where u can send your post card home. The view from the restaurant in maiden tower was amazing. The place was classy, but the bill is not hurting.

Would highly recommend a walk up to the Toompea mountain. You'll get rewarded with a nice view over the Old Town. It's also seems to be a popular spot for wedding stuff, I saw a happy couple take wedding photos - must've looked Beautiful with the view of Tallinn in the background!

We loved Toompea Hill which was, as is most of Tallinn, like somewhere out of a bygone era. The cobbled streets and green areas were delightful and the Russian Orthodox church was beautiful. The whole area - and Tallinn Old Town in general - is magical.

Been here several times. Worth a little walk up there, because views are great. Make sure you go there when it's not raining or fog, if you wanna see as much as possible.

Wander around and take in the beautiful cathedral and the brilliant views from all the a sightseeing spots, especially over to the coast and ferry port. The cobbled street approach has a nice little cafe for a warming drinks stop

We walked up from the Old Town through the cobbled streets to have sundowners on Toompea Hill. With stunning views across Old Town, this is the place to go for great photo's and to watch the sun setting over the city. There are also plenty of historical monuments and points of interest to explore too, including the Parliament Buildings and... More

This is another great place to check in Tallinn. There are plenty of lovely places to check out in the area but the view of the town below is definitely the highlight.
