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.

    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.

Where to stay in Tallinn

Many of these--from economical bed and breakfasts to a luxury hotels--center within the Old Town or just outside of it, giving you easy access to historical sights and a range of activities.
