About
It is located in Kiiu Manor Park. The central building in the mediaeval Kiiu Manor – the tower – was probably completed in the first quarter of the 16th century. It may be presumed that the construction work that was started during the time of Baron Fabian von Tiesenhausen who was the host of Kiiu for more than fifty years (1517–1566) was performed with the help of Kolga lay brothers before the liquidation of the local landed property in 1519 that used to belong to the Gotland Roma monastery. Thus the folk story does not call Kiiu a monk tower without purpose. The defensive structure that resembles the body of a windmill at a distance and which was brought to ruins in the interim years was restored under the leadership of art historian Villem Raam in 1974.

Nice parc, nice tower, nice stories arround. The accomanying building, which should offer an Café was closed in autumn (not totally surprising) and we could imagine that in summer this is a lifely and nice place. But not much more to say.

Tasty & cheap coffee in an adorable tower, and a lovely owner that described the history of the tower for us, before letting us go on a little tour upstairs. The homemade food was so good we almost cleared the place out!

The very smallest castle in Europe - just 1 tower with 4 floors. But very romantic and very sincere hostess. It will tak just 15-20 minutes to explore the castle and to enjoy very tasty coffee.

It is not so easy to find this tower. It located about 500 meters from road, and there are no any information sign about it. But for normal tourists it is regrettable to miss it.
Nowadays this tiny castle is managed by two elderly ladies. They are very friendly, told us a history of this castle. We went upstairs, observing all rooms. The upper floor is turned into Rapunzel room – very nice! The wooden gallery around the tower on the 3rd floor is fantastic – it was penetrated by bindweeds or other plants and looked like in real fairy tale!
Finally we drank tasty coffee with pies sitting at a table in front of the tower.
