Strong medieval fortification tower Kiek in de Kök (Germ. "peek in the kitchen") got its name from a legend about some soldiers in the tower who liked to peek from the top of the tower into the windows of Lower Town kitchens.

Nowadays, the tower houses a museum that introduces the genesis of Tallinn, its development, as well as the most important war events from the 13th to the 18th century. On the basement floor, there are temporary photography exhibitions; in the armoury, you can explore various weapons and have a go on a shooting simulator.
The café on the fifth floor affords one-of-a-kind views of Toompea, the Lower Town and the harbour.
Guided tours of bastion passages also start at Kiek in de Kök.
