After a lovely walk from the Town Hall we were delighted to arrive at this grand space overlooking the city. Charming panoramic vistas are to be viewed of the urban area and its walls.

An interesting addition is the trio of sculptures of monks in various postures around the garden.

Nice square with interesting statues and legends. The danish flag supposedly fell down from the sky in this place, helping the Danes to win the war.

The Danish Kings Garden is an easy view while heading to the city wall, Toomepea Hill, or Neitsitorn. The legend behind the garden may be even more interesting then the garden itself. Still, even in the fall it had its beauty. An important part of Tallinn history and worth a look. Free

Danish King's Garden is just next to Toompea, on the slope facing St. Nicholas Church. According to an old legend, this is the spot where a flag descended from the sky during the Danish invasion; this flag turned the course of the battle in favor of King Valdemar II. Later, the flag became the national flag of Denmark. It was the Danish reign that lasted for over a century in Tallinn and Northern Estonia that actually gave the name to the garden. The three statues of faceless monks are a highlight of the garden but they reminded me of the grim reaper so were a bit creepy, especially if you visit early late in the evening.

The Danish King's Garden is a quick stop on your tour of Tallinn. The story of the garden and the silent Monks that guard it is fascinating. I will not spoil it for you, but make sure your guide tells you the story and the history of the garden. It is a good photo op as well.
