  • Beautiful pure white castle with turrets and a large territory around it. The castle is a museum half, lovely hotel and restaurant. The hostess of the hotel and the restaurant are very friendly and hospitable. In the basement of the pottery and textile workshops-you can buy the product.

  • We we were lucky just to dive in history. We did not plan to visit this castle, but it was totally worth it!! This castle is nice and very interesting, you can literally just feel the history in it. The surroundings are marvellous! It is a genuine off-path gem, which shows just how many things one can see in it's homecountry. Totally recommend!
  • .....Alatskivi Castle worth seeing @least once, beautiful building & extensive grounds, well maintained & restored....some parts of interior quite dark & spooky which adds to the authentic atmosphere & experience of the place....~EnJoY~ : )
  • Nice looking palace. Well maintained. Okay museum aswell. The garden and park need some work though.
  • Fantastic castle with really nice sorroundings: small park around and lake with small bridges. Good restoraunt and sweets. Nice workshops in the cellars. Concerts and theater events through the year.
  • Really nicely renovated castle with museum, restaurant, suites and surrounding area.
