Tallinn’s beautiful from any angle, but there are some spots with killer views that are worth visiting at least once during your Tallinn workation.
Not your typical rooftop bar, Port Noblessner offers views of a marina, and the sea beyond, making it a summer hotspot for locals and foreigners alike. Located near the bohemian Kalamaja district, the hip Noblessner area features fascinating industrial architecture from the early 1900s that is being gradually fixed up and opened to the public. This is the perfect place to spend an evening watching the sunset, while sipping a glass of wine or a cocktail.
Lounge 24 + Horisont
Lounge 24 and Horisont are typical hotel rooftop bars, with excellent views of the Old Town and Tallinn’s ferry port. They are lacking in character, though, and tend to attract tourists and business travelers instead of locals.
Located in the Telliskivi Creative City, this internationally renowned photography museum is a meeting place for world-class art, good food, music, and design. In addition to a varied exhibition program, Fotografiska regularly hosts events, masterclasses, and meetings with artists. You will also find a café, gift shop, and a zero-waste restaurant with fantastic views. The ground floor and rooftop both host great parties, while the rooftop restaurant and bar has perhaps the best Old Town views. Located in Kalamaja, this museum draws locals, expats, and tourists alike.
A popular and quite famous amongst locals, Komeet has decent views of the Opera House and the Old Town’s tallest towers. Its summer terrace is known for parties, with the biggest held on Wednesday nights. Komeet gained some infamy several years ago, when the president’s (now former) wife was spotted making out with a Frenchman.
