We went at sunset to this viewpoint when the sun was casting a warm glow over the old town which made for some stunning views and photographs.

Others have said that this viewpoint does not offer the best views of the old town and suggest better ones are available from St Olav's Church tower. However, the tower is only open between April and October. Therefore, this is not an option for winter visits (incidently neither is the Tower Hall Tower).

The right place to go to if you want to see something from Tallinn's old town, as much as to see a bit from the new neighborhoods of the city. It takes some effort to climb up the walls, but it's nothing that bad and I believe it's worth it.

Platform is a great place to enjoy the Old Town and take panoramic pics. It is easily accessible from the Alexander Nevski Cathedral.

What a view in day or night- photo opportunities are present. Take a Tripod to get the best quality photos.

This is one of 2 platforms from which you have a nice view towards the Old Town and Ocean with the Cruise Ships. It can get very crowded after 11 am. So be there early if you want to spend some time taking in the view and make some pictures.

Beautiful views of Tallinn old town from the viewing points. I would say the views are better from the viewing points than from the walkways. But I would still recommend going on the walkways along the towers.

While it's a long climb up, the view from the top is lovely.
Try to start from the hill and climb your way down towards the park.

This is a viewing platform from which you can get picture postcard views of Tallinn. It's not too many steps leading to this place and views are just fabulous
