Well worth climbing to the top of the hill for excellent views of the old town. It's a nice area in general with fewer tourists than the main drag.

The whole of the old town below Toompea is worth the walk but, if you can allow yourself the whole day to go around, it is much more enjoyable. There was a cruise ship in yesterday when we visited and the crowds were appalling as...More

Just like all the other viewpoints in Tallinn, this one catches your breath, whether you like medieval towns or not. Be sure to visit this one!

When the cruise ships are in it can be crazy crowded, but the fairy tale vistas are worth seeing. Stay in Tallinn a bit for a lovelier view and quiet times.

You could take a cab from old town and ask them to drop you at the crossroad of Toompea and Falgi Tee street. You still have to walk about 400 metres from this junction. The first 50 metres will be slightly hilly but the... More
