Valmiermuiža's Park and Tower

In Valmiermuiža Manor, you will have an opportunity to learn about the historical events of this place, see the tower of manor castle, relax in the shadow of trees in the park and go on horseback to a former hunting park.

Valmiermuiža castle, which is also known as Valmiermuiža manor, was built in the second half of the 18th century as a sophisticated hunting residence with spacious rooms, high ceilings and splendid wall and ceiling finishes. A few years later, the hunting pavilion was complemented by a two-storey baroque side building and a small tower.

In summer, the tree-lined Valmiermuiža castle was used as a summer house. It was a popular place of resort among representatives of royal families and exquisite gentlemen.

The castle was located close to a wide hunting park called Iršu garden, which was used for hunting pleasure. The park was populated by deer, roe deer, wild boars, hares, pheasants and even a couple of bison that were brought to the park from a distant land.

The magnificent Valmiermuiža manor was ruthlessly destroyed during two world wars. To the present day, only a few parts of the manor have been preserved: a small castle tower, park gates and outbuildings that witness the wide scope of economic management and events of the past.
