Alt-Waimel in Kirchspiel Pölwe, Kreis Werro

The estate originates from the 16th century and belonged to von Richters and von Loewens for a long time. The stylish Classicist manor complex originates from the beginning of the 19th century. Now it belongs to a vocational school. The originally one-storey main building was turned into a two-storey one in the 20th century.

A kilometre from the centre of the estate, there is the cemetery chapel of the von Loewens (now in ruins), which resembles a small Neo-Roman Orthodox church.

By the historical distribution the manor was in Põlva Parish in Võrumaa County. By the present administrative distribution it belongs to the Võru Municipality in Võrumaa County.
