Palms in Kirchspiel St. Katharinen, Wierland

In the Middle Ages, this manor, which was first mentioned in 1510, belonged to Tallinn Cistercian Nunnery. Later, it was associated with the von der Pahlen noble family for a long time. The two-storey main building was completed in 1697; its current look originates from rebuilding in the 18th century. There is a magnificent park on the grounds of the manor and numerous valuable outbuildings.

This is one of the best-known manors in Estonia, which was completely restored in the 1970s and 1980s (and belongs to Museums of Virumaa). Additional information – museum:,, ph. +372 324 0070, +372 55 599 977; hotel:,, ph. +372 322 3626, +372 56 464 170.
