Avanduse Manor

Simuna, Estonia

Avanduse manor (Awandus) was first mentioned in 1494. The origins of the present-day building was a building that was erected in 1679-1684 by Tallinn master builder Gerd Vorberg at the initiative of the landowner at the time, Gideon von Fock. The building has however been heavily rebuilt since, with final changes being made by architect Rudolf von Engelhardt in 1890. Russian geographer Fyodor Litke is the most famous owner of the estate, and a plaque dedicated to his memory hangs from a wall of the manor.

Seisab tühjalt, laguneb. Kahju ilusast suurest hoonest. Park hooldamata.

Kakesbeck Castle

Kakesbeck is one of the largest medieval fortifications in Münsterland and the oldest castle in Lüdinghausen. The imposingly grown complex originated in 1120 as a motte, a small hilltop tower castle. After numerous changes of ownership, the castle was extended onto two islands, but it was not until the 14th century that it underwent significant alterations and extensions under the von Oer family. The estate experienced its heyday in the middle of the 18th century, when it covered an area of almost one square kilometre and consisted of five further outer castles in addition to the core castle, which were secured by ramparts and moats.

The well-maintained condition of the castle today is thanks to the late Wilfried Grewing, the former lord of the castle. The foundation named after him has been particularly committed to preserving the property since 2020.
