Maiden Tower was first mentioned as early as 1373. The tower has been reconstructed several times but its unique architecture is still based on its trapezoid floor plan. The name of the tower comes from the name of the tower commander Hinse Meghe which was later adapted into Mädchenthurm or Maiden Tower in English. Over the centuries, the edifice has been used as a defensive tower, a residential building and a cafe – some say it is still haunted! Artists Kristjan and Paul Raud have worked here; a stone plaque dedicated to them stands in Danish King's Garden next to the Maiden Tower.
