    The Manor of palmse Manor and of the former noble family of Pahlen performs like no other, what immense riches once belonged the (German) Baltic nobility. All elements of the farm operation and the House itself are restored in a coherent way, there are garden sheds, an Orangery, a distillery, a forge (in operation) and much more. Garden and Park are a splendour. We were clearly too little time. Alone the historic artifacts at the residential Palace are impressive, an original map of the Manor of Palmse from 1868 (55'000 hectares!) or memories of the railway, Tallinn (Reval) - St. Petersburg, which the Baron Alexander von der Pahlen (a close friend of the Russian Tsar) 1869 simply invested his assets! Really sad there is merely the monument for the land reform in the Park (after the 1st World War the estate in Estonia was expropriated and distributed to small farmers). The memory of this time overdue social turn deserved more attention.

    Quite interesting but avoidable. With all the other wonders to see I would say don't miss it too much time here

    Manor house was overflowing with period pieces and information, overdone to my taste. Walls around the grounds were quite nice. What really made our day was the smithy. His knowledge, willingness to share, site and tell were amazing. Unfortunately for most is that his second language is German.

    Probably the best maintained, restored and preserved Manor House in Estonia. Lovely grounds, nice restaurant on site with views over the lake. Visitors centre with a great RMK display. There's a shop in the ticket office selling the usual gifts. Spirit distillery museum, orangery, plenty of walks around the grounds and a maze. The house itself is beautifully presented with each room well explained, plaques on the walls give you the history of the house and the family. The house is on 3 floors including the cellars. They have live demonstrations in some rooms, and the staff are on hand to provide explanations. Entrance is €7 per adult and gets you access to the house and other buildings. Just walking around the grounds is free of charge. Parking is across the road and is free.

    Palmse, a trip to Estonia During my exchange program to Estonia, we went to this beautiful mansion house. I loved it there! The Blacksmith is a very enthusiastic man that tells you interesting stories about his work. The property that belongs to this building is quite large, so there is plenty to see. You get a good view of the families that used to live here and the history that goes along with them. Definitely worth a visit!
