There is a viewing platform near the Alexander Nevsky Cathedral and the Estonian Parliament building. This platform is one of several. It provides excellent views over the Old Town and the Port area. It is well worth a visit for the photo opportunities it provides.

Lovely prospect - you are beyond the Wall to the Old Town/Inner Old City - but what a view you have of Tallinn. Great viewing spot and a good place to visit, before you descend down to the Old Town and its charms. Nice restaurants...More

Although there are several other viewing platforms from which to see the old town, this one is by far the best. Located not far from Toompea Castle, it forms part of a small square. Always busy as one would expect, this is perhaps best seen...More

This location gives you a fantastic panoramic view of Tallin Old City. prefect place for photographs. We unfortunately coincided at a time when a cruise ship brought visitors. I guess it is wise to go there early in the morning.

There are several viewing platforms all around but this is the best. The seagulls seem to enjoy posing for tourist pictures too. There are shops and coffee places here too. The shops have WCs for customers.

The climb up to the city's viewing platform is well worth it. Kohtuotsa is basically a square with a low wall one one side - enabling you to look out to the city's outskirts and beyond. Bars and restaurants provide refreshment on the others sides.

A visit here is a must to get to see the amazing views of the old city. Can be crowded early as all the cruise ships stop in Tallinn and bring their guests to this area.

A nice place to have a view point over the old town and the sea. it can be very busy when the cruise ships arrives and it can be very pack, so try and get a nice angle for your camera shot!
