Great photo ops!

What a stunning view it was up there. I was lucky enough to arrive at dusk and they photos I got out of it were breath-taking. Definitely a must see.

Went to the area whilst still dark and was impressed by the floodlit buildings. Also gives you a perspective of the whole of Tallinn. Not to be missed.

This one offers a great view on Tallinn. Very near and conveniently accessible from the Raekoja plats, go here and enjoy the city view with the sea!

Great buildings, really well maintained and good views of Tallinn. Very unspoilt and you could easily imagine you were back in the middle ages.

They say this is where Kalevipoeg is buried. The best sights, fabulous government buildings - it's all there on Toompea hill.

I have been very often the Toompea hill, about 5-6 times a year, 20-year timeline and I do not get bored. Toompea offers to see and do, if your patience to walk the stairs or steep hills. A taxi can get close to, if there is a physical limit.

Suggest that you walk up to this point as there is so much to investigate and view on the way. The view over the lower town area and out to the harbours is really panoramic.

Had a lovely walk in the old town. Worth visiting all the viewing points (we managed to find three of them) to see the contrast between old town and the old factory/harbour area.

The best part of getting to Toompea Hill is the meandering walk through the amazing old town. The overlook is perfection; great for a souvenir pick but you have to be there during the right time of day so the light highlights the red roofs.
