Overview
More
Toomemagi or Toome Hill was a gift from Emperor Paul I to the University of Tartu – having previously been used by townsfolk to graze cattle. For hundreds of years it had been the centre point of the local population, later becoming the site of a castle which made it the heart of medieval Tartu. In the early decades of the 19th century it was turned into a park on the initiative of the university's plantation committee, with alleys of trees, paved roads and bridged gulleys. Along with the library, anatomicum, observatory and clinic it formed the intellectual focal point of Tartu.

Spent about 45 minutes doing the circuit which not only had good views over the entire city scape of Tartu, but has regular story boards of the main buildings and monuments that are within the bounds of Toome. The cahedral, which is partly rebuilt, contains...More

We always like to get some exercise each day. Walking up the hill, and looking at the statues and remains of a massive cathedral were a nice way to get out and walk.

It is a small hill where you can simply take a walk. It is great in a hot day,because there are many trees so park is in shadows. There are some small caffees, benches to sit. For extra price you can visit observatory and some...More

You can forgot yourself in Toomemägi. After the leaves will go orange, yellow and red its the perfect time to walk there. Its like a fairy tale. I think in summertime or warmer autumn day you will enjoy picnics there for sure.

Toome Hill is one of "the must" places in Tartu. Good for walks and jogging, romantic meetings or just excercising your dog.

Nice little walk from the Town hall; Beautiful park and ruins of a huge church. In the Summer you can also climb up to the tower to see the whole Tartu.
