Toompea (from German: Domberg, "Cathedral Hill") is a limestone hill in the central part of the city of Tallinn, the capital of Estonia. The hill is an oblong tableland, which measures about 400 by 250 metres, has an area of 7 hectares (17 acres) and is about 20–30 metres higher than the surrounding areas. In folklore the hill is known as the tumulus mound over the grave of Kalev, erected in his memory by his grieving wife.
The history of Toompea is closely linked to the history of rulers and power in Estonia. Today Toompea is the center of the Government of Estonia and the Riigikogu (parliament), both of which are often simply referred to as Toompea. The location of the Riigikogu is the Toompea Castle, situated in the southwestern corner of the hill and topped by the Tall Hermann tower. The flag on the top of the tower is one of the best-known symbols in Estonia of the government in force.

A free viewing platform that provides great view over Tallinn and its bay. From one side accessible via lengthy stairs climb, from the other direction via more gradually ascending streets. A definite must-go place for any visitor who wants to take some panoramic shots, or as nearby graffiti recommends, just enjoy the view.

Great platform to take panoramic photos of Old Town's rooftops and towers. Completely free of charge and easy to access. My favourite place in Tallinn :)

One of the best spots from where to see old Tallinn and out into Tallinn Bay. The tiled roof tops look amazing, and if you're there during Spring, it is relatively quiet. We had it to ourselves for a few moments. Long enough to take some amazing photos.

It's a awesome place to spend your evening. You can view Baltic sea on one side and perfect view of City on other side. Nice place to capture some good photos

Wonderful panoramic point at the very top of Tallinn's Toompea hill. In a sunny day it offers a wonderful panorama of the entire city and surroundings.

Beautiful view of the city walls and the frozen sea

Great place to see the city, you can go up the stairs or from the other side of the hill, souvenir shop on premises

Nice viewing point from where the historical part of the city (e.g. Nun's Tower and part of the city wall) can be observed. It is quite close (3 min walk) to Kohtuotsa viewing platform, so it is worth visiting.

17May18 2:30PM Unmatchable sights, colours and memory-making buildings with spires on domes which hold the worshipful eye skywards. The Patkuli viewing platform high is a gift to locals and tourists looking for that spot from which photos will reward the photographer for decades. With perfectly small souvenir and art shops on the platform complemented by a cart making a range of spiced and sweetened nuts the platform easily takes 100 people. Children must be watched at all times for safety to prevent falls off the wall or down the nearby stairs. Patkuli is a gift from and asset of this ancient Estonian city - Tallinn.

Free access viewing platform for a view of Tallinn. Better view than from Kohtuotsa viewing platform

From here you can see the whole of Tallinn. There is quite a steep climb but there are 2 ways to get here, the second way is longer and not so steep. The views when you get to the top are well worth it. Go early before the cruise ships arrive!

A breathtaking view on both the old and modern parts of Tallin. You may expect a little bit more tourists taking a lot of photos and selfies but who cares when you are in such a peaceful and interesting city.

Great viewing point to oversee Tallinn. But try to avoid weekend afternoon, it get very crowded with tour group. Kohtuotsa viewing platform is another viewing point that I would recommend

Risotto was Nice. Not as in Italy, but the food tasted Italian. Definately come back when we are in Tallinn again
