Tallinn TV Tower, Tallinn

4.3
#6 of 185 in Sightseeing in Estonia
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.

  • The TV Tower is the tallest building of Tallinn, 134 meters. 21 floors with lift. Outlook provides a whole of City buildings, green areas and forests. On level 21 and also on the bottom area includes an exhibit from the time when Estonia was occuperat by the Soviets. Everyday objects, furnishings and clothes. Very nostalgic. Cleaning coats in all colors and designs with waist aprons was typical for all women.

  • There was an exhibit on Soviet life at the foot of the TV tour. All the descriptive panels had descriptions in Russian, English and Estonian. There were extra descriptions in Finnish. It was very inte...  more »
  • As I recall, 175 m high in a very long one, and if there is a good air. Nice restaurant at the top and the other activities, e.g. reunallakävely.

  • 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.
  • It is so high, you might even get high coz of it 😀 They allow u to walk around the tower s top, without any fence but u have to be chained. There are some smart screens or mushrooms but they didn t impress me U see really far from it

Where to stay in Tallinn

As Estonia's largest city, Tallinn has a wide range of options for accommodation during your travels. 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. Get more for your money by venturing a little farther away; try a guesthouse in one of the surrounding areas for an authentic Estonian experience. Be sure to book accommodation in advance if you are traveling in the summer, as hostels, hotels, and bed and breakfasts are known to book up fast for the months of July and August. This is especially true for weekends from May through to September.
