The place for views in Tallinn. Look out over the city and enjoy picturesque vistas in every direction. Perched on the edge of the old city it's a short walk back into the hub of the medieval centre. Definitely worth a visit, costs nothing to walk up here and enjoy.

Nice place for a long stroll. Site of the Estonian Parliament and many foreign embassies. Small restaurants and cafes are also plentiful. Good viewpoints to see the old town and city center.

Great for just wandering and exploring, but dress warmly, even in April it was gloriously sunny, but minus 1.

Nice view over Tallinn. The wind was really cold, so make sure to wear warm clothes to enjoy the scenery even longer :D

Very nice view over the old town of Tallinn. You can find two or three viewing points on the hill in different directions. On the top of Toompea you will also find the cathedral of Aleksander Nevski which is a very nice cathedral. You will also find a very nice café Pika Jala on Pikk Jalg(the long leg) which is... More

Nice view to the city. You can see in the Old Town during 3 hours. But this view is good to see. What else should I write?

Gentle walk uphill to see the views of the city and Old Town. Worth the stroll for the views. Lots of other sights to see in the area too.

Part of the old town. You can see the old wall from the dark ages. Only few minutes from the center in Old Town.

The view of Old Town is the reason to go. A good way to spend a few minutes of your trip and take some nice photos.
