Weissenfeld in Kirchspiel Roethel, Wiek

The manor was first mentioned in 1323. It was constructed as a vassal castle in the Middle Ages. In the 1620s–1630s, it was rebuilt as a Renaissance palace, and slightly altered in the 18th and 19th centuries. In the 20th century, the estate belonged to the Soviet military forces, and the main building remained in ruins after a fire in 1993. In 2000–2002, the ruins were looted (the side portals were stolen, and rear wall broken along with the lion mascaron of the main portal, among other things.)

By the historical distribution the manor was in Ridala Parish in Läänemaa County. By the present administrative distribution it belongs to the Ridala Municipality in Läänemaa County.
