“333 steps to the platform top”
Reviewed 16 July 2014

What a view and worth every single step up to the platform. Full view over the sea, Old Town and the whole of Tallinn (I wonder whether you could even see Helsinki....).
History goes back to the 12th century and it is said that this church was the highest building in Europe until the Dome of Collogne was build. (In KGB time the tower was used as a radio station) and the "Grey House, where the Soviet KGB was housed is just around the corner.

“Great rewarding exercise, ensure to bring your camera!”
Reviewed 30 June 2014 via mobile

First of all, it cost 2 euro enter the tower, which I talk it's reasonable for the experience and consider level of mantance work involved.

I do not suggest to visit the tower at the very beginning of the day, as there could be many people, also you might feel that other hill top sights seeing locations aren't comparable after the tower. Simply a must go venue in Tallinn.

“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.
