Kohtuotsa viewing platform

Add to Favourites Your favourite!

Kohtuotsa offers sweeping panoramas of Old Town's rooftops and towers against the backdrop of the modern city skyline.

The spacious area on the east corner of Toompea hill offers unforgettable views of the medieval neighbourhood and is easily the city's most famous photo spot. From here you can see most of Tallinn's centuries-old spires as well as its newer ones, the highest of which is the TV Tower visible in the distance. Beyond the modern city centre lies the Lasnamäe suburb with its countless Soviet-style block apartment buildings. 

During the summer season, an outdoor café operates here and dance evenings are held on the platform space.

With any luck, you will also find a seagull called Steven walking on the edge of the platform posing for photos like a true supermodel. Those seagulls must be some of the most pictured birds out there... #Tallinnseagull and #Steventheseagull

August 9, 2018, by Dearmans

We agreed not to go up the hill during the heat or when the cruise ships were in. Low and behold we found ourselves up at the viewing point at 14:30. We came up a gradual hill so didn’t really think... Read more

During the main tour boat visiting hours (11am to 4:30 pm) there is a steady stream of tourists to the place. It has maybe the best view over the old town and as far as the harbor. You will also see... Read more
