Toolse Castle[edit]

Toolse castle (German: Tolsburg) was a crusader castle belonging to the Teutonic Order. It was completed in 1471. At one point, it was the northernmost outpost of the Holy Roman Empire.[1] In fact, Estonia was never part of that state.

Today only ruins remain. A conservation and archaeological survey scheme has been carried out at the site since 2006.[2]
