The platform is accessible via the roadway, as the walkways are narrow. The staircases are also an obstacle. The roadway of Rahukohtu Street is uneven and hard to navigate. The platform is accessible.

Patkuli viewing platform

Add to Favourites Your favourite!

This is the best vantage point for viewing Tallinn's fairytale Town Wall and towers, St. Olav's Church and the harbour area.

Located on the north side of Toompea hill, the platform sits visibly on a limestone cliff. On the right, the Town Wall and its defensive towers stretch off into the distance. On the left lie the city's Kalamaja and Pelgulinn areas, with the railway station as a landmark.

A winding series of steps, built in 1903, leads down the cliff face to Nunne street and Shnelli Park below.
