Kiltsi Manor

Väike-Maarja, Estonia

The estate was first mentioned in 1466. It has been associated with the Gilsens, von Rosens, von Zoeges, von Benckendorffs, von Krusensterns and von Uexküll-Güldenbandts. The ruins of a vassal castle destroyed during the Livonian War were reconstructed as a stately castle in the 17th to 18th centuries, which received its present form in 1790.

For many years, the manor was the home of a world famous explorer and mariner Adam Johann von Krusentern, who also passed away in Kiltsi. Since the 1920s, the manor houses a school. The building has been thoroughly restored starting in 2000.

the mansion can be rented for celebrating birthdays and weddings, organizing trainings and seminars, and in summer you have the opportunity to visit the mansion.

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.
