    Exciting castle with well preserved parts. Very well organised with selected tour on your own and with informational boards. A couple of guides who will be happy to tell us if you like. Opportunity to test stålbrynjor, helmets and clothing from the 1500 's.

    The second time I visit the Castle and it was as interesting as the last. You learn a lot about history, including Gustav Vasa who resided here and if the witch burning. Nicely restored with stairs all the way up so that you get a good överklick of the whole Castle from above.

    What is left of Kastelholms slot are ruins. Over the centuries it has been built and destroyed multiple times. The slot looks better outside in its surroundings than inside.  more »

    Well maintained but like other "castles" in Finland, there's just nothing much to see or do inside the building itself. The surrounding area with nature and country houses are, on the other hand, very beautiful.

    Very nice kept place with very good guidance even without separate tour. For younger family members there were treasury hunt to make others life easier - very nice.

    There exists also greater and more interesting castles, but Kastelholma is quite ok in its class. Finnish museum card (Museokortti) accepted, which was nice.

    Provides an excellent insight into what life was like in a medieval castle.
