“Amazing view from the tower ”
Reviewed 28 June 2014 via mobile

The view of the city from the top of the tower is amazing. Totally worth the 258 steps of the narrow stair.

“See Tallinn from the top”
Reviewed 23 June 2014

If you want to see Tallinn from the top it's one of the best places. But take a good clothes. It's quite windy on the top

“Better View than the Hill”
Reviewed 20 June 2014 via mobile

This is a beautiful church, but the really nice part is the view from the top of the tower. It is only 2 euros to go up. After 258 steps up a cool old spiral stone staircase, you are treated to a view of Old Town Tallinn, as well as views of the rest of the city on the other side. Old town is gorgeous, so its nice to have the view Of it instead of From it, as you do from the hill. You want to see the gorgeous churches and spires and red roofs, not see out from them.

So this is definitely the thing to do. It was the highlight of the trip, and even my 60 year old mother was able to make it up the steps. It is not easy, but definitely doable for all ages.

“Peaceful!”
Reviewed 17 June 2014

What a lovely peaceful place to go from the busy streets - harmony and beautiful patina of old age. Visiting the church was free, only going up to the tower had a small cost (didn't go there, I'm afraid of heigths!)

“234 steps & great view”
Reviewed 14 June 2014

You need to climb up some steps (+- 234) then you will enjoy view over almost whole city (including old town and harbor).
