Estonia redevelops and rebrands a castle

A castle in southern Estonia is redeveloped with unique accommodation as the Castle Wagenküll Spa Hotel.

Like the other Baltic countries, Estonia is increasingly offering unique accommodation in redeveloped castles and manors.

Most recently, Taagepera Castle in the south of the country was renovated and extended and will be reopened in July under the name Castle Wagenküll Spa Hotel, the Danish-Latvian tour operator Via Hansa & Borealis reports in its latest newsletter for customers.

The mansion’s history goes back to the 16th century, while the current elaborate castle is one of the best-preserved examples of the art nouveau style in Estonia, rebuilt by Baron Hugo von Stryk in 1907.

Luxurious and romantic
The castle hotel is now offering “luxurious and romantic” accommodation in three different historical buildings, namely the Castle Building, the Park House and the Governor’s House.

In total, there are 75 rooms and suites, all of which offer “an elegant and historical atmosphere with, of course, all modern conveniences”, the tour operator says.

Among the facilities, the hotel features the Castle Restaurant for up to 140 guests and an exclusive spa and sauna area.

The property is situated in rolling countryside in Valga County in southern Estonia, close to the border with Latvia, about 100 kilometres south of Estonia’s second city of Tartu.
