Another platform for viewing purposes. Again, it gives good views of the city and as always, a cleared sky day will make it more beautiful to view

Some great views of the city, thoroughly recommend walking up to the viewing platform during a clear spring or summer day. The walk up to the platform also has some great sights and you'll encounter some of the historic buildings and city walls.

Stunning view, but everyone else was there to see it too! Large parties with tour guides arriving in waves, so if possible time your visit for early or late.

Worth checking out while wandering old town to get a better feel of Tallinn as a whole. The city is so different in each neighborhood and its nice to get the overview.

A complete panoramic view of the entire city from this location. Great place to spend a few hours. Its a bit of an uphill walk but very easy one to do
