This is the place from which to see Talinn displayed in front of you. Yes, it's a bit of a climb, but it's definitely worth the effort.

There are some great views & photo opportunities from here but it does get very crowded so you need to be patient to get to the front.

On a sunny day it is always a good idea to walk around Toompea Hill. Excellent view points, picturesque alleys, magnificent Alexander Nevski Cathedral, fine old buildings and small shops.

The reasons why have been covered by many reviewers below, but with its tight cobbled streets , picturesque Cathedral and Church and the two viewing platforms providing excellent views over the city you really should not miss exploring this part of Tallinn.

Yes, it is a nice walk through town and then a short walk outside the old town back to the port.

the climb isn't too bad, its fairly gradual - i would think ok at any age for anyone even slightly fit. The views from the top are great and it is where you find the orthodox cathedral which is worth visiting
