Toolse Order Castle

The Order castle of Toolse is one of the more recent medieval castles on the northern coast of Estonia, it is also the castle located closest to the sea. The initial fortified manor house was probably erected by the order in the 14th century with the purpose of protecting the port, trade location and routes. During the Livonian war the castle passed on through many hands and finally ended up in the possession of Swedish troops. It was entirely destroyed in the Northern war in the beginning of the 18th century.
Today inside the ruins: · Excursions are offered providing insight into history · An exciting adventure path was created · A pirate ship · Treasure quests and games of skill are organised on advance notice
