Linde Manor Ruins, Park and Gate

Address “Ezeriņi”, Birzgale parish, Ogre municipality

Linde manor park was built from 1767-1772, where an interesting phenomenon is the Dutch linden tree plantations which seem to be growing with the roots up. Linde Manor belonged to the family of Baron von Plettenberg, who built  it in the 16th century. During World War I it was heavily bombed and not rebuilt. Linde Manor Gate: In 1767, Georg Friedrichson von Plettenberg built the Linde Manor Gate in Baroque style, which is the only surviving part of the manor complex to this day. Gate and park are objects of national importance.
