Krimulda Manor

Krimulda’s classicism-style manor delights visitors with the wonderful scenery of the primordial Gauja river valley and the local winery from whose barrels flows the sweet nectar of life. The charming detachment of the manor allows you to enjoy the attractions of "Vidzeme’s Switzerland" in a tranquil environment, which once preoccupied the carefree lives of noble. Landscaped paths guide leisurely travellers on a healthy walk alongside sandstone cliffs and picturesque scenery.

The rustle of the forest will be complemented by the sound boats wending their way through the gently flowing water of the Gauja river valley. The cable car will whine temperamentally, while pegs are banged into barrel holes in the wine cellar. Up above, the birds will be all of a flutter as their flight carries them within range of the delicacies in the manor greenhouse.



You can spend warm summer nights in the unique wooden houses, falling asleep to the sound of chirping grasshoppers and the babbling of a fountain, and basking in the morning sun on a historical sunbathing porch. Visitors can also enjoy warmer accommodation in the main manor house.

Originally, the Livonians lived in Krimulda, on the shores of the River Vikmeste, but in the 13th century, the crusaders arrived here. Over the centuries, Krimulda experienced various epochs: German, Polish, Swedish and Russian. Not far from the manor house, today one can still view the medieval ruins of the Riga archdiocese fortress, which was burned during the Polish-Swedish war in the 17th century.

In 1819, Krimulda Manor was acquired by Prince Johann Liven, a representative of a notable Baltic-German family. The Liven family managed property in Krimulda until 1921, creating parks and walking spots at Krimulda Manor and making the surrounding area increasingly attractive and recognisable.

In days gone by, the beauty and peace of Krimulda’s landscapes also attracted high ranking officials – in the mid-19th century, this was the vacation spot for the Governor-General of Vidzeme, Aleksandrs Suvorovs, while Russian Tsar Alexander II also visited Krimulda Manor and the newly created park, which greatly enthused him. In honour of the Tsar’s visit, a wooden bridge was built over the Gauja and the Serpentine Road was landscaped and still exists today.

Even though the precise date of the construction of Krimulda’s new manor is unknown, it is assumed that it began in 1822. The manor was built in the classicism style and it is an outstanding example of such architecture in Latvia.

Nowadays, Krimulda Manor invites visitors to cast their eyes upon the testimonies of times gone by, which are preserved in its authentic interior. To see with their own eyes, the primordial nature of the Gauja river valley, enjoy the tranquillity of a walk through the park and to enjoy an unhurried visit to the new manor, where one succumb to vacation dreams or recover one’s health.
