Tucked away in a corner by the city walls, this place is now a kind of garden and like many places in Tallinn?s old town, it has its own legend: In the 13th century, Estonians and Danes fought for the city. At a time, when the Estonians seemed to be the winners, the Danish flag (Danebrog) came down from heaven and the tide was turned in favour of the Danes. According to the legend, this miracle happened excatly on this place. After this battle, which took place on July 15th 1219, a period of Danish rule over Tallinn started.
In the summer season, there is the possibility to have a walk on this part of the city walls for a small fee. Upstairs, there is also a café as well with a small selection of hot and cold beverages as well as snacks. During wintertime, you can climb up the wall for free. However, only the small strecht from the steps to the café is open. Be careful on the steps when it freezes as the way up there is pretty steep.
