This is a great place to view the medieval city walls, and look out over the old town. We first came here on a private walking tour, and had to come back. It's easy to access and there are cafe's around as well.

Pretty plaza with a nice lookout area that provides a nice lookout over Tallin. Lots of statues throughout with a restaurant on site. These walls were built to defend Tallin, you can climb the stairs to the tower for views.

Quiet place and nice view to Old Tallinn. Nice point for pause in trip. From garden has small shortcut streets that throw you in old center. Good spot for selfy.

We really loved this place - it felt slightly hidden from the crowds. My kids loved the mysterious monks, which took us by surprise. We had to climb up onto the wall and investigate. Follow Rick Steve's walking guide to get here. We almost missed...More
