Definitely one of the places to visit on Åland. The castle is amazing and you can go inside to see it. It's 1-2 hours well spent :) Also the surrounding is very beautiful and houses well restored.

A very good presented castle. Ingormative signs. Treasure hunt for small children, stunning views. The prison museum and outdoor museum was well worth the visit. Beautiful.
