Great place to see and feel Estonian and even german and Hanse history. All houses are restored very nicely, and there are several lookout points where you have a tremendous view over the city

Great views of the city and not exactly a hill as easily accessible (though you can choose the steps too)

Nice easy walk with some nice views over Tallinn which (when not crowded) seems to be a compact place to walk around.

You can have a sweeping stunning panoramic view of Tallinn old town from the top. It is quite easy to climb. You must climb.

While the lower town with it's pretty town hall square and numerous churches and shops can keep you busy for an entire day or two, don't miss out on the chance to climb up to the upper town (Toompea) which was in olden days the...More

visit it both once in the day and during the night, worth your time. You can treat it as a good viewpoint. From spires to old-town roof-tops it is definitely picture-pretty.

Well worth a walk up the hill from the lower town - and there are several different routes with a variety of gradient to suit your fitness - to see the two cathedrals, the Parliament and to snap the view across the town from the...More

There are actually a few ways up, but they are all steep and some involve stairs. I would take the road not the stairs, the ones I stumbled on to walk up are not only steep, they are uneven. Start in Freedom Square and... More

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
