The Pope Estate ensemble belonged to the von Behr family. The main palace’s form was particularly splendid. The Baron’s home or palace was built at the beginning of the 17th century, but has been rebuilt several times. The estate ensemble also included the old palace or hunting lodge – a two-storey tower building. In the 19th century a French-style garden was created between the palace and hunting lodge, with a pond in the middle. Of the original buildings, the new palace and hunting lodge, the steward’s and doctor’s houses, the servants’ house, the imposing stable and other buildings have survived. Visitors to the new palace can view its late 19th/early 20th century interior, classicism-period exterior doors and Rococo tile stoves. The building is now home to the Pope primary school.
