Edole Castle

In Kuldīga, local trade was the most important one, but before the 18th century, external trade played an important role as well. Historic documents contain references to various export items such as cereals, meat, butter, lard, leather, wax, honey and vodka. In times of the Duchy of Courland and Semigallia, just like in the times of the Order, the trading route led through Ēdole.

Ēdole Medieval Castle is the only remaining castle of the Bishopric of Courland which is still inhabited. The castle was built during the years 1264-1276. Originally it had two parallel residential sections, connected by a stone wall. In the middle of the Southeast wall, there was a gate tower. Thus, the courtyard was enclosed and the complex was a safe haven for its residents.

The offer includes:
- Accommodation in the castle for 2 people,

- Breakfast,

- Tour of the Medieval Castle Museum,

- Surprise from the Castle. 

EUR 150 / 2 persons 

Additional activities: bicycle rental

Enjoy the essence of  rustic benefit of Courland!

Kuldīga’s trading routes stretched far across the Baltic Sea, in some cases reaching the North Sea. Due to the intensive trade, the city of Kuldīga recovered quickly from wars, plagues and fires in the 17th century. The description of inventory drawn up on 29 September 1341 shows that crops were initially gathered in the small castles of the Kuldīga commandry and were collected as farmers’ tax to the Order.

Padure Manor is the only 3-storey barn built in Latvia in the 18th century. The 2nd floor of the authentic building hosts the Rural Life Museum of the 18th–21st century, and a restaurant on the 1st floor offers Latvian national food and home wine tasting while listening to music performed by a local accordionist.

Hansa bicycle Tours in Kuldiga
