We climbed the tower on a lovely day to take in the view and it was worth it for the stunning vista of Tallinn and beyond.
The spiral stairs are steep, narrow and uneven in places and you will encounter people coming the opposite way.
Definitely a highlight of our trip!

The free-to-visit church is a vast, plain, Lutheran place of worship that is worth a step inside to experience such a high-ceilinged space. The real draw, however, is the tower for which there is a modest charge (€4 I think). It is quite a climb up a claustrophobic turnpike staircase, but the 360 degree views of the city are ample reward.

This place is still and peaceful and does not have the grandeur and iconography of the other top attractions in Tallinn, but we loved its scale, its awesome tower and area it is set in which is a little off the man tourist routes. If you like northern European Proterstant Churches you will be in awe at its scale!

Once upon a time between 1549-1626, this church was the tallest building in the world. In medieval days its 159m spire would have made it a truly inspiring sight. Sadly it is also made an excellent lightning rod, and the resulting fires burned the church to the ground in 1625 and in 1820. Now at 124m, the current spire still holds the towers over old town.
