The Otepää hill fort is one of the 21 Southern Estonian places worth discovering that are marked by a yellow National Geographic window; if you are interested in spending your holiday in the nature, it is definitely worth a visit.

Come and walk to the top of the Otepää hill fort. The hill is about thirteen thousand years old; its absolute height is 165.6 m above sea level. You will see the ruins of the stone stronghold established by Bishop Herman in 1224 on hilltop and take in the views of the city of Otepää and the surrounding nature.

Here stood one of the strongest strongholds of Ancient Estonia; additionally, the oldest known firearm in the world was found on this hill.

Природная смотровая площадка.

С холма открываются красивые виды на город, не поленитесь поднимитесь на него. Здесь находятся развалины Отепяэского епископского замка XII века

Fort -ruiner på Stadshöjden !

C:a 400 meter söder om Luteranska Mariakyrkan ligger Linna mägi ( Otepää Town Hill ). På höjden byggdes under 1200-talet en Biskopsborg som sedan århundraden, fallit i ruiner och är numera överväxt !
