Berķene Manor is one of the oldest small manors in Zemgale and is located in a picturesque place on the bank of river Svēte. Its history began in 1462 when Johann von Mengede, the Master of the Order granted the land in fealty to Claus von Medeheym. The current manor house was built in 1819 in early  classicist style.

Here the present day comes into close contact with the history - you can look into the diary and learn about the life in the manor in the late 19th century and hear the stories about the rebirth of the manor in the 21st century. Harmonious recreation awaits the guests of Berķene Manor: a hotel operates in the restored manor house and adjacent barn, while walking tracks and picnic spots have been created in the park and garden, with a swimming spot in the manor’s pond.
