Owner description: An ancient 10th-century Estonian stronghold stood on this 170-foot-high limestone plateau, which was later divided into the Big and Small Fortress with its distinctive defense towers erected in the early 13th century.

This was a point on the top (old town) with exquisite views. An absolute must do while visiting Tallin. All the walking tours will take you here. Don't miss it.

We went there after Christmas. Was hoping for some snow to come because somehow the snow makes the rooftops more charming. BUt the again with the cobbled stones that makes the path a bit difficult specially with children, you will be thankful that there was no snow. There are viewing places where you can take panoramic pictures. Maybe it was winter that's why there were hardly any tourist. It was nice to relax and just appreciate the view of the old town.

Wonderful old buildings, great view over Tallinn, nice narrow streets, few cars.
Not so easy to walk because of the paving-stones

There is a lovely atmosphere up at Toompea Hill. Walk up the 'long leg' and then return down 'short leg'. The views from different places are magnificent and better than any that you pay for in the Old Town (towers). Try the Bogapott quirky cafe for a drink bfore leaving.

Pleasant walk along the winding streets with stops along the way. Good souvenir shops and nice outdoor cafe at the top of Toompea Hill. Rewards were stunning views at sunset of the city.
