Visited the towers in the old town. It was okay, had a nice view over the old city. There is a lot of stairs though, if you want to climb to the tower. The ticket price wasn’t bad. In the towers are some exhibition rooms...More

For a small fee it is possible to climb to the tower and enjoy beautiful views over the roofs of Tallinn and walk on the city wall. I really relished and can recommend.

We enjoyed walking here, viewing the fortifications and sitting while soaking in the view. Fun to climb around and a lot of places to peek out at the scenery.

Another piece of a viewing of the King’s Garden and the Town Hall. The tower offers some views of the town. It is another element in the pieces in and around Toompea Hill. The castle is also a piece of the area. All these attractions,...More

This tower offers good views and a little cafe. But it’s a tight fit and other than a history of sweets, there isn’t much else. Staff really should have told a herd of rude teenagers on a school visit to quiet down, this spoiled our...More

Like the rest of the walls this is a great thing to look at. The tower punctuates the wall and makes it more interesting. Worth a look.
