Why locals love it

The Tallinn Old Town is actually not that big, but that doesn't mean you can't get lost. The Toompea hill, especially, is well known for leading people through twists and turns into dead ends. The Kohtu platform is ideal if you wanna see the whole of Tallinn without having to climb the narrow stairs to a certain very tall church in the Old Town.

Why you should visit it

Once you've reached the high ground and have actually found the platform, you'll witness a sea of odd-looking red rooftops, grey guard towers and beautiful spires, as well as the modern Tallinn skyline in the distance. If you can't see the highrises, then it means you're on the wrong platform. But keep trying, you'll get there. Eventually.

Special tip

Don't even think about visiting it during the day in summer, because it's flooded with cruise passengers who all leave by about 3pm.

Great viewing spot with not so many tourists because it's a bit hidden away. Although there are still plenty of people there.

Tallinn city view from Kohtu platform is just amazing. The best place you can see the capital as a whole :)

Classic Tallinn's panorama. Used to go there a lot when I was studying there for 6 months. Amazing!
