Münkenhof in Kirchspiel St. Simonis, Wierland

The estate belonged to Pirita (St. Brigitta) Nunnery in medieval times. It was elaborated in the 1860s while in possession of Carl Timoleon von Neff. The two-storey Neo-Renaissance castle was projected by von Neff himself - an artist of the Russian Czarist court and also a portrait painter known all over the world. The inner marble staircase is a present from Emperor Alexander II of Russia. The building now houses a school.

By the historical distribution the manor was in Simuna Parish in Virumaa County. By the present administrative distribution it belongs to the Laekvere Municipality in Lääne-Virumaa County.
