Kalvi Manor

Aseri, Estonia

The estate was first mentioned in 1485, when there was a vassal fortress built by the von Lode family. Later on, the estate belonged to the Kalffs, von Essens and von Stackelbergs.

The Early-Classical main building that had replaced the medieval fortress in the 1770s burnt down in 1911 (in ruins), after which a new luxurious eclectic main building was erected nearby and completed in 1913. Because of its corner towers and granite facing tiles, the building reminds one of a medieval fortress. In 2000–2001, the main building was restored as a hotel and restaurant.

The place from a distance is beautiful, but inaccessible. Hence the GREAT disappointment. Driving somewhere far away to look out the car window is pointless.

Very nice place but the problem is that you can not get to the bottom probably it is private land. There is a bell but no one rang after the bell rang. If it was an open place for the public, it would be an ideal place to spend free time.

Very cool, little bigger than my home, but very bad hospitality.

It looks like a super place and a mansion with fantastic architecture, but unfortunately you can't get to the territory of the manor - private property

Not subject to the laws of the republic!

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.
