You get a magnificent view of the city. Watch the sunset here if you are up late on a Summer night. This is definitely a highlight of Tallinn. I can imagine the view in Winter with the snow-capped roofs across the land. Take your time...More

There is lots to see on the hill itself. There are two very good viewpoints of the old town too. Well worth a visit.

We visited the Toompea viewing platform with our German friends again. There has a perfect viewpoint where you can enjoy the panorama of Tallinn and take some pictures. When weather is good, this is especially enjoyable place to visit. Sometimes there has too many people...More

Take your camera because you will definitely want pictures from this advantage point. Every direction offers a different photo op. There are stairs and cobblestones and you will undoubtedly pass tour groups. Go early to avoid the crowds.

Beautiful area of Tallinn, also known as Dome Hill. There is a gate near the museum which was locked at night to keep the poor people from disturbing the nobility. Beautiful architecture and rarely crowded.

What a beautiful view. Wonderful picture site. Must have been easy to get there, I was on a free walking tour, and I dont remember climbing to get there. There were quite a few stairs to climb down from there.

A short stroll from city center and the lookout is amazing. It wasn't over crowded so plenty of opportunities for photographs

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
How far is this from Old Town. We will probably walk around Old Town ourselves and see what else we can take in with the time we will have off of the ship.

It's adjacent to or a part of the old town. Don't miss it!
