Tallinn TV Tower, Tallinn

(1,000+ reviews on the web)
Observation Deck Tourist Spot
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. Tallinn TV Tower is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our international travel planner, Tallinn Edition.

  • Amazing 360 degrees view 170m above sea level. The horizon shows Tallinn and cruise ships. The floor has clear glass in several places. Have a look! Unfortunately, other windows will reflect if you want a good photo from 21st floor, but if you use the steps for 22nd floor it's possible to walk outside(!) half around the tower and here are some good photo options. There were no restaurant(!) during my visit.
  • We enjoyed our visit to the tower. It costs 10€ or is free with the Tallinn card. Catch bus 34A from the Viru Centre.
  • Don't go on a foggy day because we did and we couldn't see trough the windows and it kinda ruined the point why we went there. There were other activities though, but I think most of them were mainly for kids. On a sunny day, I bet the Tallinn TV tower is the place to visit. Also, it was easy to go by bus.
  • Excellent view, but the restaurant has been closed for a while and looks very abandoned. I guess they could just make it nicer and sell some coffee and snacks there until they find a new owner for the restaurant.
  • Great 360 view, possibility to walk on edge for 20 eur.
