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.

One the best castles in the Finland, but going there is such a big disappointment. The castle is restored very good and it is in good shape, but imagine: such a big castle with white rooms full of nothing. Yeah, the rooms are practically empty. Couple rooms contain some coins and pictures, but that is all. Otherwise it is white... More

This castle is a gem, really. It is very well restored and gives a good insight to the life in medieval Finland. The location is also very beautiful in the middle of a park an surrounded by the lake Vanaja.

Hämeenlinna is named after Häme Castle, a nice castle by the Lake Vanaja with exhibitions and local museums. It hosts local fairs in Xmas time, usually both before and after, and also Easter time, and in the summer, usually in mid August there is Medieval Fair event in the surrounding park. Castle is nice as it is, but even nicer... More
