About St Olaf's Church, Tallinn

The Oleviste Church was founded in the 12th century and dedicated to King Olaf II of Norway. Even though rebuilt in the 14th century, the church’s history is traced in documents to the 13th century. The building is quiet famous for being struck by lightening 10 times in its lifetime- a controversial but popular fact.

Today, the church’s silhouette adorns the skyline of Tallinn and its tower that stands tall at a height of around 125 meters, offers a breathtaking view of the city.

St Olaf's Church, Tallinn Reviews

  • More than 230 old, uneven and windy steps up the spire so be prepared to work a few leg muscles. It's an amazing view of Tallinn that is gorgeous on a clear day. Would definitely recommend it for €3. ** kids over 5 should do the climb comfortably. Our kids loved it.

  • Amazing! But climbing the stairs is very hard! 60 meter

  • I came here to climb the spire and it was worth it in my opinion. You would be hard pressed to find a better view of the Old Town then from the top of the Church. It is a strenuous and very very steep climb to the top up centuries old stone stairs. Not good for anyone with leg problems who low stamina!

  • Definitely a place to visit in case you want to see Tallinn from different perspective! Good exercise for your feet to climb up the steep stairs.

  • Reminds me of the scene from In Bruges with the Americans wanting to go up the tower.. . Basically, this is that, not for the feint of heart. Narrow staircase with a loose rope to hold on to. Great view though.
