Tallinn TV Tower, Tallinn

4.4
Height characterizes Tallinn TV Tower, which features an observation deck and an opportunity to walk on its very edge. Visit the tower, which stands 314 m (1,030 ft) tall, and view its exhibits on television displays, Tallinn, and the country as a whole. Hop on the elevator to the tower's observation deck; at the top you'll be rewarded with panoramic views over the Gulf of Finland and Tallinn to the southwest. Digital overlays and multimedia stations allow you to see pictures of the area from years past or highlight certain features. If you're up for a thrill, try the "edge walk," where you can wander outside the observation area in a harness, or even rappel, dropping 175 m (574 ft) to the ground by rope.

  • Well worth visiting for a couple of reasons, the views once you're there are spectacular, but the bus trip to get there is excellent too, beautiful beaches and scenary to see on the way. Good job the ...  more »
  • Before getting into the Tower we visited a very interesting exhibition on life in the Soviet era. An apartment was restored (there was other things also) it was very fun and well done. Then we climbed the tower. The view is nice but there are also plenty of small spots that give information on various topics affecting the Estonia (skype, the records of the country, most scientific things, etc.), it is very well done, in small doses, comfortable. At the top of the Tower there was also an exhibition on the aprons (such as those that carry my grand mother) it was very fun and interesting. On the ground you can see how far is other cities, it's interesting. There are also circular places where one is standing, with a sort of veil, and when you press a button the veil disappears and the vacuum appears under our feet (but there's always the thick glass, no risk to fall!). The restaurant at the top of the Tower seemed not open (in work?). My boyfriend was not tempted by the "walking on the edge" but I was very tempted! For all this we paid 24 euros for 2, that is not excessive. The shop at the bottom of the tower was very good, found objects that it has not found elsewhere, so we made a part of our "memories for family and friends shopping" here. The tower is offset from the center of the city. We came by taxi, but we went by bus, more economic and not complicated (I don't remember the number line bus). It was great, I recommend visiting!

  • Who would be that neither talked about respect of Estonians to the Soviet Union, but they are to the past in my feeling nostalgic. For example, in the Tallinn tv tower exhibitions dedicated to the Soviet past. At the bottom of the exhibition about the life of those times on the observation deck was also a temporary exhibition dedicated to the clothing of the Soviet time, namely bathrobes and fartukam:) In General, visit the tower is quite interesting, both adults and children. Starting from pleasant surrounding area (forest, bot garden), ending with interactive pieces on the observation deck. examination begins on the ground floor with an exposition about the history of the tower. Then we go up upstairs by elevator. There's a closed point view 360 degrees. You can see the city and surroundings, bring the image on the interactive screens. These same screens a bunch any information on history, culture, music, celebrities, Estonia. On a visit to the allotted hour, this time quite interesting take though in itself and a small playground.

  • Good view from the height. The restaurant is rather simple there. And you need to buy a ticket.
  • The TV tower is not only what it is - it's also a painstakingly done museum and exhibition center. You can see not only the whole Tallinn from the glass - but walk outside by the wind using life-saving rope. There are hatches in the top of the TV tower exposing the height under your feet. Multimedia content with Tallinn residents' stories and science lectures is a nice addition to the place.
  • The one of the best place to visit in Tallinn, wonderful and attractive, there is a lift to go up. There friendly robo machines also an exhibition of old Russian living style.
  • Great place with awesome views. 20th August, the Day of Restoration of Independence, is the day to visit. A family day is taking place with French and British soldiers, tanks, bands and other fun activities! If the French girl in uniform on the right on the pictures happens to see this, please get in touch via Facebook :)
  • Awesome view, extra activities and information about history. You have an hour to explore everything because a limited amount of people can go up there (although we didn't notice anyone keeping track of the time so it's nice if you do it yourself).
