Toompea - "Cathedral Hill" - is a limestone hill in the central part of the city of Tallinn, the capital of Estonia.

Toompea mészkősziklái mintegy 20-30 méternyire emelkednek Tallin fölé, a területe kb. 400×250 méter.

Az első írásos emlék szerint a mai Tallinn helyén található halászfalut és Toompea valószínűleg fából emelt kastélyát 1219. júniusában II. Valdemár király vezetésével dán kereszteslovagok elfoglalták - a település dán fennhatóság alá került. IV. Erik dán király 1248. május 15-én emelte városi rangra. Ebből az időből származik Észtorország címere a három oroszlánnal és a város neve: Taani linna = dán vár.

Az egymást követő uralmak során (Német Lovagrend, Svédország, Orosz Birodalom) Toompea saját igazgatású külön városként működött és képes volt megóvni különleges privilégiumait. 1878-ban egyesült az alsóváros Tallinnal, de 1944-ig megtartotta saját polgári törvénykönyvét.
