The castle inside is interesting but not spectacular but the views, surrounding areas and other attractions as the Jain museum and the open air museum is very interesting and pretty relaxing. Certainly worth a few hours in you are in Aland

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.

We went to Kastelholm in August this year, whilst I would say we under estimated the distance between the castle and Mariehamn! Some said 10k and some said 13k, but we believe it should 10miles or more, coz we felt like we were cycling up...More
