Nice view over the city!

A great place to take photos of Tallin. We walked through the old town and accidently found this place which was a great surprise, a lot of tourists are there for taking photos.

It's incredibly easy to get to - just look up and head towards the tower/top of the hill. There's not easy to pinpoint the best view point but you'll occasionally catch glimpses of the whole city as you wander around the area. It's stunning on a clear day, and worth taking a wander around. There's the Tallinn equivalent of Parliament... More

What is there not to like, a viewing platform that allows you to see the breathtaking view of Tallinn. Added bonus, no cost.

Climbing to the top of the hill you can catch the best views around Tallinn. No admission, a lot of perfect spots for taking pictures.

Having been to Tallinn twice on hot, summer days it was a change to experience it in a snowstorm but the views from the hill, across the old town rooftops were equally spectacular. This view is a must on any trip to Tallinn

Before the visit to Vyshgorod it will be useful a little acquaintance with the history of this old port city. History of the merchants and nobles relations will help to understand the geography. Do not forget to visit all five viewing platforms, it will give extra color to your impressions

Not too much to visit here, apart from the churches - only a couple of bars. But a nice walk on the cobbled streets, and a couple of great viewpoints to look out over the old city. Suggest you extend the walk round the walls and visit the museum in the large tower.

There are several viewing points to see over Tallinn. Toompea Hill offers fabulous views and it is easy to go to each of the viewing points - short distance between each. The walk to the Hill is amazing as you weave through cobbled streets with quaint shops on each side. Fantastic.

This is a bit of a walk up the hill - slippery in snow - but the beautiful orthodox cathedral, Parliament House, embassies and the panoramic view the f the old city is worth it. We did it just on dusk the first time then in the rain at night and finally in the snow. All gorgeous. Don't miss the... More
