“Well Worth the Walk Uphill”
Reviewed October 20, 2013

If you are not too nimble on your feet, the walk up to the top of the town can be quite strenuous but most people will manage by taking it in stages. The view from the top is worth the effort with a panoramic view of the old town. Very beautiful. If you are in Tallinn this is a "must see" destination

“Definitely Go”
Reviewed October 19, 2013

Its worth finding on the map to see a breathtaking view of the city. It's a great place for photos or to sit and relax overlooking the old town. A must see in the fall when the leaves are changing.

“Toompea Hill for the views”
Reviewed October 18, 2013

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.

“Wonderful views.”
Reviewed October 14, 2013

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.
