Climb up to Toompea Hill to get a good view over the old town. Make sure you go for a walk on the wooden construction on the city wall to get the best view. Close by is the Alexander Nevsky-cathdral in new-Russian style. Only 5 minutes walk from the old city.

Great views and loads of trees and greens to be found here, along with many interesting sights. You'll find your way here if you're visiting Old Tallinn. Look out for the viewpoint.

Besides the views of the city, the little neighborhood on top of the hill is pretty interesting to see. There are embassies and government buildings and a church. Conveniently small relative area makes it an easy walk even if it is up a hill. I didn't even notice the climb. The views are nice at some parts, but sadly, the... More

If you visit Tallinn, then you have to walk up to Toompea, marvel at the medieval buildings- and more modern ones, take photos of the town at the view points and browse the many souvenir shops. Get a guided tour if you can, the history is fascinating.

The view to the old town and to the towers is really awesome! Nobody should live Tallinn without seeing it.

This city will always have a special place in my heart, and the Toompea Hill is the perfect place to get a breath taking panoramic view over the old town and the baltic sea, absolutely stunning!

A lovely walk up. Great views to reward you once you get there. You can get the audio guide from the tourist office which gives you good information. The best part is wandering around aimlessly...you'll stumble upon all the attractions, without the bother of locating them on a map and trying to get there!
