Kuremaa Manor

Jõgeva, Estonia

The estate founded at the beginning of the 16th century was properly finished in the middle of the 19th century while owned by the von Oettingen family. The stately Late-Classical main building was completed on the estate in 1853, and now houses a vocational school.

At a distance of 2.5 km from the manor, you can find the family cemetery of the von Oettingens with a Neo-Gothic funeral chapel (1890s).

Hohenwerfen Castle

Hohenwerfen Castle stands high above the Austrian town of Werfen in the Salzach valley. The castle is surrounded by the Berchtesgaden Alps and the adjacent Tennengebirge mountain range. The fortification is a 'sister' of Hohensalzburg Castle both dated from the 11th century.

The former fortification was built between 1075 and 1078 during the Imperial Investiture Controversy by the order of Archbishop Gebhard of Salzburg as a strategic bulwark. Gebhard, an ally of Pope Gregory VII and the anti-king Rudolf of Rheinfelden, had three major castles extended to secure the Salzburg archbishopric against the forces of King Henry IV: Hohenwerfen, Hohensalzburg and Petersberg Castle at Friesach in Carinthia.
