This is an interesting area on the edge of the old town. We were a little confused about the walls here with archery slits pointing towards the upper town. Later we learned that these were the walls around the lower town that separated it from the upper. There are good views from this area over the roofs of the buildings below. The rather strange statues of monks are interesting if somewhat foreboding. It is worth purchasing the excellent Tallinn Card so that you can go into the museum and walk in these amazing walls.

Accidentally came across this little trail while exploring the area. Its situated between the Niguliste Museum and Neitsitorn Museum. Its supposed to be the spot where in 1219, The Danish Flag fell from the sky and led the Danish forces to victory over the Estonians.

Before climbing down from the upper part of the old town to the lower part. The monk sculptures are not old but a nice touch to the wall between upper and lower towns. There are several worthwhile stops on the way down the stairs off of Toompea Hill.

Nice well kept garden with a good view over Tallinn that is perfect for pictures. There are also statues of faceless monks around the garden that were apparently donated by a wealthy local and have no significance whatsoever

If you like legendary places with haunting stories, this is the place in Tallinn you shouldn’t miss.

Just behind Neitsitorni Museum, there is this amazing entrance for the “Short Leg Gate Tower”, that is considered one of the most haunted places in Tallinn and which looks like more a magic place that takes you back to Medieval time and according local information “The Gate used to be locked at night to stop the commom people of the lower town from bothering the nobility. Apparently, the gate was also supposed to stop the ghosts who were try to seak up to Toompea Hill from the Danish Kings Garden.

We didn’t go inside of the museum, but we totally recommend you spend a good time over there, because it’s just magic place. You will also find some artists selling their paintings from the gate and their ghosts!
