Overview

Medieval adventure! If you come to visit us you will arrive to the 16th century! We have a thematic park where children and grownups can enjoy the day, wear knight and warrior clothes, play games and study the life of medieval people. One of the main reasons to come and visit Rakvere Castle are the Chambers. Torture Chamber, Chamber of Death and HELL. Worth of visit is also Red Lights street, Medieval Brothel, Barber shop and Alchemic room. Quests are welcoming also different animals and the gloriest of them al is a Donkey called Mickens!

It is worthwhile to spend hour or two to visit the caste, especially if you travel with kids and this is just one of few castles/ fortresses your are going to visit. Nice place, but almost these are ruins of the fortress. Museum and attractions...More

This is not only a castle in ruin but offers a medieval experience with sword fights, archery and others activities to put you in the ambience of the middle ages. Perfecto for families. Very good gift shop too with good prices.
