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.

Thank goodness it is well worth the walk up. A lovely place to wander and appreciate the autumnal views. On another jaunt...We also visited the 24 floor of the Radisson Blu and had a different set of views and value for money hot chocolate.
We were lucky with dry, bright sunny out of season week. No crowds and efficient, charming service everywhere.

You can see for miles from up here, well worth the climb. Quaint cobbled streets and small squares with a few nice churches on the way to the viewpoints.
It is quite commercial at the viewpoints but not threatening. Lots of gifts available here.

Historically a very important building and I loved the architecture.
Near the park and with lovely grassy views.

Unfortunately, the crowds detract from the experience. I would like to go back some day, but at a time when no cruise ships are in port.

There is a lot of history in this area of Tallinn and Toompea Hill gives an idea of what it was like hundreds of years ago. Great views from a number of vantage points, cobbled streets leading into cobbled back-alleys, the beautiful Alexander Nevsky Cathedral, must see in Tallinn.
