Mensenkampff Chapel
Mensenkampff Chapel
Situated close to the Tarvastu Order Stronghold is a chapel constructed in the early 19th century in Classicist style. What makes the building unique is its high, pyramid-like roof and porticos on all four sides resting on pairs of columns. Did you know…?*The mausoleum was ordered to be built by the local lady of the manor in memory of her husband. *In order to provide better access to the chapel, a suspension bridge was constructed across the river valley in 1878. This bridge was later gifted to the City of Viljandi and is currently in use in the centre of the city in the hilly area close to the castle ruins.

Das Gebäude ist kein Restaurant. Wir waren nur mit unserer Familie auf Besichtigungstour. Der Zugang idt leider nicht ganz einfach. Dieser Begräbnitzplaz unserer Familie liegt in Vorhof der Ordensburg Tarvastu. Einige Familiengräber liegen unmarkiert um das Gebäude. Im Gebäude befindet sich ein stilisierter Kopf des letzten Gutsbesitzers Karl von Mensenkampff und eineige zerstörte Grabplatten.
