The inner courtyard paved with cobblestones dates from the Middle Ages. Horse-drawn carriages and cargo wagons moved by way of this courtyard between Pikk and Pühavaimu streets. Two mighty arches were built in the inner courtyard in 1531–1532, which support the White Hall above it. The section of street leading to Pikk Street was also closed off in the course of this construction work. There are several landings in the inner courtyard that lead to rooms that were located on different levels of the building. The inner courtyard’s remarkably fascinating milieu creates a special atmosphere through its architecture with Renaissance influences – concerts and theatre performances, coffee breaks and festive dinners have been held in this courtyard.
