“Good place for a day out”
Reviewed June 24, 2013

Lots to do. Need to book tunnel tour in advance at the 'Peek in the kitchen' tower but well worth doing.Great for kids as there is a little train ride at the end.

“take a guided tour or buy a guide book”
Reviewed June 23, 2013

Nice walking area, but either take a guided tour or buy a guide book. There aren't many plaques outside of historic building to describe their importance. It would be easy to walk past something that would be interesting.

“Excellent view”
Reviewed June 22, 2013

Great view over the Old Town but it's a bit of a climb for the less able and not really suitable for a wheel chair.

“Absolutely the best view of old town”
Reviewed June 22, 2013 via mobile

When you visit old town THIS is the place to come. Now we were not on our own time due to the cruise ship schedule however this has got to be one of the most romantic views on the Baltic at night. From here you can walk to the Parliament house, the presidents palace, the cathedral and all of old town. The hills were not bad but it might be tough if your in a wheelchair or have trouble going down stairs
