This is a very impressive, well-preserved castle adjacent to a military museum. The tour was excellent and the guide very informative.

The only castle made of red tiles in Finland. Dates back to the 13th century. I strongly recommend the guided tour because otherwise it's hard to find out all the interesting aspects of the castle.

This medieval castle is located right on the shore of Lake Hämeenlinna near the town center. There are organized public events, as well as celebrations such as weddings etc. The castle is also located in the Prison Museum and the Finnish Artillery Museum. This is an interesting place to visit for all ages.

Been there last summer with a group of international travelers. We enjoyed the guided tour. Unusual building by Finnish standards. History goes back to 11/12th centures. A good place to remember Finland's big fear of their eastern neighbors.

After castles in France and Spain the Hame Castle looks at the first glance rather modest,but if you take into account beautiful surroundings,peaceful lake on the shores of which sits the castle and a rather unusual purely Northern German and Scandinavian fortress architecture,then it becomes clear that the place is worth a visit.Besides the excellent Armor museum is not far...

Cafe closed it doors early, this castle tour just wasn't so interesting that I had expected, and compared to other similar type of castles I've visited earlier

This is a "real" castle, with thick walls, narrow passages and a long history. It gives you a distinct medieval feeling, although it also served different functions into modern times, as prison, for instance. Apart from the buildings, there are some exhibitions, guided tours and a video show. As the castle has so long a history parts of it have... More

It's amazing castle and museum. You can walk in every room and through tiny corridors. It is restored very good. It shows parts of the medieval life in Finland and it is just interesting. 1 hour well spent. Why not spend 1 hour while walking near the beautiful lake in Haemeenlinna.
