Loona Manor

Saaremaa, Estonia

Small Loona manor-house in Kihelkonna is a vivid example of a long and complex story of reaching it's present form. Oldest parts of the building date back to Middle Ages, the cellar uses battlements of an old vassal-castle built in the 16th century. Next major stage of building took place in 1785-1786, when the building was given most of it's present appearance.

Today Loona manor hosts a guesthouse, café and restaurant. The surrounding beautiful park is ideal for daily walks.

It is usually a pleasure taking accomodation in a manor. In this case, service during booking, check-in and all meals was super convenient and all staff very supportive, many thanks to Katrin and team!

Food is delicious, but the choice is limited only to few dishes in every category. For a Main course we had a choice between Meat stew, Fish of the day and a Wild boar dish. No separate children menu. Overall a good choice if you happen to be in that region, as there are not much alternatives.

Topography of Terror

The Topography of Terror (Topographie des Terrors) is an outdoor and indoor history museum. It is located on Niederkirchnerstrasse, formerly Prinz-Albrecht-Strasse, on the site of buildings which during the Nazi regime from 1933 to 1945 were the headquarters of the Gestapo and the SS, the principal instruments of repression during the Nazi era.

The buildings that housed the Gestapo and SS headquarters were largely destroyed by Allied bombing during early 1945 and the ruins demolished after the war. The boundary between the American and Soviet zones of occupation in Berlin ran along the Prinz-Albrecht-Strasse, so the street soon became a fortified boundary, and the Berlin Wall ran along the south side of the street, renamed Niederkirchnerstrasse, from 1961 to 1989. The wall here was never demolished.
