You will pass by the Danish King's Garden if you walk down the hill from Alexander Nevsky Cathedral. It is the large paved area once you go under the arch in the city wall.

We found this place by accident, as it is a little bit hard to find even if we asked at the local tourist office. This is the place were the Danish flag according to the tales fell down from the sky. The place is also marked with a shield and a sword. The place is "OK we have seen it"... More

The Danish kings garden provides a pleasant place to relax and also an alternative for a view of Tallinn. It is worth wandering up the "short leg" to get the garden and look at the view.
