  • A beautiful little medieval castle set in a stunning natural landscape. Inside the castle is the Castle yard is often used for summer events and markets. The castle can be found in the bar/pub/restaurant, with a fine view of the Castle and the food is good. In the summer the castle to be built in summer theater, and there is also a medieval jousting. The site has good signage, and the cars in the parking lot area.

  • Built by the Swedes in the second half of the 14th century castle of Raseborg (Raaseporin linna) is the oldest of all very few fortresses and castles of Finland. At one time it was erected on a small granite Island washed by the water. By the 16th century it lost its necessity and no longer used. Moreover, for long centuries the sea receded and now at the edge of the fortress is surrounded by dense forest. The castle is not as well known, the same is in the remote forests of South-Western Finland (approximately 80 km from Helsinki South) away from the main roads. In summer, the entrance to the castle is charged, there is a summer Café and summer theatre, events and tournaments. Winter in the Castle are free to enter and calmly, without the influx of tourists to wander through the old stone buildings. The castle itself is not accessible, you need to leave your car in a small parking lot in front of the bridge and walk several hundred metres through the forest, the benefit of everywhere stand signs and signage with the history of the Castle.

  • Although the ruins not are in their best condition, worth stopping to take a walk around the Castle. We went to Hanko and decided to stop to see. They are not many castles in Finland and this gives a perspective to the ancient times. On a summer day the views from the tower are impressive and even you can imagine as it was everything. That Yes, maybe could have more information to understand the history of the place.

  • This is a great place to stop if driving along the old King's Highway. Definitely on a nice summer day just a take a quick drive here.
  • Really great ruins and surrounding area. There isn't much else there, but apparently there are plays there sometimes and there is a restaurant. I can't say much about those, since I didn't enjoy either.
  • A great romantic looking ruin and an interesting bit of Finnish and baltic history. No internal exhibits like many other castles in Finland, but a great preserved open ruin that is worth a visit.
  • Beautiful castle
  • Nice to have one more time to walk around it. Tickets to the ruins to see inside for 5 euro for sale.
