Stumbled across this by accident - managed to catch a glimpse both at day and at night and was not disappointed - quite the romantic spot to take a partner!

Toompea Hill hosts a variety of places of interest. With that said, it's not just a hill. Rather than visiting the "hill", you'd be seeing some most famous spots, such as the viewpoints, the churches, etc.

It is really worth climbing to Toompea. Beautifull buildings including churchs, parliament, embassies etc. View from the top is like nowhere else. In wintertime prepare for cold wind.

You get some amazing views of the city here. If you're walking around the old town you're going to get here eventually as it's not far from the town hall.

the climb isn't too bad, its fairly gradual - i would think ok at any age for anyone even slightly fit. The views from the top are great and it is where you find the orthodox cathedral which is worth visiting
