“Do the climb”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 September 2014 via mobile

The 2 EUR charge to climb to the top of the tower is well worth it. Views out over the old town and beyond are great, although I imagine it can get a bit unpleasant if there are many people there at once. On of the highlights of a day wandering through the old town.

“Excellent viewpoint of Tallinn Old Town”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 August 2014

The entrance fee to the top is 2EURO but the church itself is free. The 258 steps is quite challenging physically but the view on top is worth it. I like the fact that it's not completely fenced on top so I managed to take some good photos of the Old Town. But I hope there is better control of the number of visitors because it can be quite scary to pass people going the other direction in a very narrow, steep and spiral staircase at times.

“Worth every step”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 August 2014

Took 258 steps to reach the top and had the most spectacular view of old town Tallinn. The only drawback was the narrow walkway which didn't allow visitors a comfortable vantage point to view the lovely scenery.

“A Place of Solitude and Beauty”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 August 2014

Fortunately for us, an organist was playing as we entered and greatly added to the atmosphere. If one need a place to rest and relax during travel, this church could be perfect.
