you can also pay 5 euro to get a bird-eye view from the top of Mary's Cathedral, but among several free-entrance points in Toompea, i personally think that Kohtuotsa offers the best spot.

Not far from the Patkuli View this vantage point gives a divergent aspect to see over the red roofs of Tallinn. If you like a view. It’s worth the climb.

Breathtaking view. The day we went, it was raining and snowing and we could look out at the entire city through a haze of snow. Just took our breath away.

This is a must see when visiting the Old Town. You get to see a stunning view of the landscape over the Old Town and it looks beautiful covered in snow!

This viewing point is extraordinarily busy during the day - with good reason. It gives an unparallelled view of the Old Town and beyond, even at night. It's very romantic in the evening and also the only chance to go there without elbowing other tourists...More

It was wet and soggy on the day of our visit, but when you only have a couple of days in Tallinn, you still get out and walk around. We were rewarded by some great views of the Old Town when we decided to climb...More

An easy "trek" to the point from town hall and a nice view over the old town. It's normally packed of people, visit there early (before 8.30) would be nice. If you want to have great photos with the view,try to visit there before mid...More
