The architecture is awe inspiring! The interior is equally captivating with the display of sculptures, paintings and spiritual arts.

So you’ve wandered around the old town down below so it’s a shortish uphill walk to the hill but very well worth it. Great views all around and lovely streets to wander around. Excellent

I love Tallinn's old city center. Toompea Hill is the old center, with the famous churches and government buildings. Interesting little streets and hidden vistas are great for wandering.

Bit of a trek up the hill but well worth the effort. Great views of the city and surrounding area. Fantastic cathedral dominates the summit a must visit. Alas no photo's allowed.

This provides yet another vantage point to over look Old Town Tallinn. Located close to the Alexander Nevsky Cathedral, Toompea Castle and other attractions it is a good spot to relax, regroup and veiw the old city. Free to enter it is a beautiful space.

Love the view of the city and the buildings from the hill. It is a must visit as you get a good look of the Old town. The buildings remind me of a medieval town and we got a good view of the church!

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

It's adjacent to or a part of the old town. Don't miss it!
