It's certainty worth popping into the 'garden' which is in Toompea area of Tallin (located on the walk between Kiek in de Kok tower and Alexander Nevsky Cathedral). However, it's a very small spot which consists of block paving, a few flower beds and some wonderful city walls rather than acres of grass, flowers and trees. But we would still... More

The Danish national flag, Dannebrog, is the oldest in the world and according to the legend it fell down from the sky right here on June 15, 1219. (King) Valdemar's Day in Denmark ever since. The place is market with Dannebrog. Anyway this is of course a special day and place for Danes, for the rest of you it is... More

There is an interesting legend associated with the site, but I didn't find the garden that attractive or memorable. Although not really worth seeking out, you are almost bound to see it at some point during your rambles around Tallinn.

Not the greatest thing to see but defiantly interesting, this is the spot where the Danish Flag was first used by Denmark's King during a war with Tallin. The legend is the flag floated down from god just as the Danes were losing the battle and the army rallied and won the town. The Danish flag is the oldest national... More

The tour guides take you here to tell the significant story of the Danish King and flag. There are a couple of craft stalls and a small garden and access to a museum. Photo opp of medieval wall and church. Then steps down one of the ancient passage ways if you chose that way down - past lots of small... More

Although this is called the Danish King's Garden, don't expect to see manicured lawns, herbaceous borders etc. Do expect to see shaded seating areas, eating places and Medieval Architecture. The area seems to be not very busy as the tours whiz past.

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. It isn't really a garden, there are lots of park benches and a nice view but that is about all. Curving around the garden is an... More

Located in the Toompea district, this attractive place provides a good vantage point from which to see the town below. Also some good views of the remnants of the town wall.
