A wonderful, winding, meandering walk through Old Town uphill to the viewpoint over the rooftops of the city. The walk encompasses stone steps past ancient walls and buildings. The view is worth the effort. Bring a camera but spend the time taking in the view.

Many important buildings can be found here. This in good place to visit as walking tour. The church is very nice inside, don't miss it. There are also nice terraces where you can see the whole city.

Lovely and romantic place to visit. At the winter time you can have gluhwein and enjoy the view. You have a opportunity to see whole town above and if you like, take a walk to nearby townhall. There is a good selection of local gifts.

On Toompea Hill there are lots of nice houses, orthodox church and at least the Finnish Embassy. There is a ”terrace” on the hill with great view over the old town and to harbour.

What a great sight arriving into Tallin. I came through to the town when there was a festival on, I can’t remember what festival it was but lots of dancing around town and a very enjoyable atmosphere.

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
