ABOUT DURBE MANOR

ABOUT DURBE MANOR

Durbe Manor is the only former Latvian manor lord house with a fully reconstructed late 19th  to early 20th century interior that provides an insight into the culture of Baltic Germans. It is considered one of the classical architecture pearls of Kurzeme, complete with a landscape park, rotunda and the longest pedestrian bridge in Latvia.

The ground floor replicates the historical interior: writing room, library, the great hall, the round hall, gentlemen’s salon, ladies’ boudoir, bedroom, children’s room, dressing room, bathroom and the manor’s kitchen. The art objects not only provide a certain understanding of the culture of Latvian manors, but also give an insight into significant occurrences in European art. 

On the first floor, you will see cultural-historical exhibitions on current and little-known historical and artistic topics, such as the poet Rainis’ and his connection to Durbe Manor. 

The manor offers excursions, educational programmes and competency-based learning programmes for pupils, classical music concerts and wedding programmes for newlyweds.
