Sangaste Manor

Sangaste, Estonia

The first mention of Sangaste Manor date back to the year 1522. The present main building is one of the most gorgeous manor houses in Estonia. The red-brick house, built between 1879-1883, represents the Gothic revival style with English features. It was designed by architect Otto Pius Hippius and the owner of the building throughout its existence as a private house was the scientist Count Magnus von Berg (1845-1938).

There is a park of 75 hectacres surrounding the manor. Today, the castle is a visiting center and serves as the place for wedding ceremonies and welcomes all romantic souls.

Very beautiful English style palace with museum and restaurant

7 eur per person, absolutely nothing to see. Not worth it at all.

Unbelievably poor castle. I cannot believe one would have the courage to charge 7 euros for this. It's dirty, run down and has nothing of interest.

The gardens are really lovely and free to visit. The inside on the other hand are definitely not worth the 7 euros. Inside you will find super weird and dusty rooms with scary stairs to climb up the tower.

Superb interior. Quite good place for romantic night. Did't see hotel rooms, but, the feeling is not from this Century.

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.
