Owner description: The view from Tallinn TV Tower is unique in Estonia as well as in all of Northern Europe. Under your feet are the woods of Muuga. The captivating Tallinn Old Town and the glistening Baltic Sea in all of its majestic glory are off in the distance. When Estonia was still behind the Iron Curtain, this was for many Estonians a window on the free world - at night one could even catch sight of the lights of Helsinki. To illustrate the view, visitors can use multimedia screens: to increase the area visible in it or seeing what the place looked like in the past. It is a view that must be seen. And - experienced!

“Cool”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2013

Wow, we've been here once before it was closed, so somewhere in early 2000s. Nice visit, entrance 9 e with combined ticket to botanical gardens next door. It was bright day but we still could not spot Helsinki.

“Look to your left - there it is”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2013

You will see the TV tower almost from anywhere. Yep, there it is. Nothing that great, though it is a large structure. It is not that impressive. I did get a few pictures of it.

“Breathtaking view in 170 meters”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2013

Tallin TV Tower is a bit away from the city centre but we took a taxi (about 10 euro) and he also stayed to wait for us to get back. The renovation has done good to the tower. You can also study many interesting things from the screens.

And yes, the view is so nice all over Tallin and other surrounding areas. There is also window in the floor to see directly 170 meters down to ground. A bit scary :).

When you visit Tallin, you defenetly should visit this tower!

“High in the Sky”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2013

Had a delicious gourmet dinner high above Tallinn. Upon entering the tower you feel like you are in a scifi movie. With little white men type ball all over lobby. The view was spectacular and when you step on these glass like circles you can see all the way to the ground, cool. Dinner was very extravagant, we started out with Herring Ice Cream (wow) and herring roe. Other starters included beef carpaccio with beets and foie gras with rye flower. The entree was wild boar and duck breast. Both served with different types of potatoes and cabbage and more beets. Dessert was a warm chocolate bomb with vanilla creme. Excellent

“wow”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2013

Wow! I've been in the vicinity of the tv tower many times but this visit absolutely stunning. The refurbishment is excellent, information points on the top floor are really well done. The cafe at the very top is nice. It's not immediately clear but there is a open air terrace too at the cafe level. Very informative, very friendly staff, spectacular views, nice gift shop.
