A very nice day out
Jul 2020 • Couples
We visited Raseborg Castle today, after reading some of the comments here that there is not much information at the site,we decided first to get as much history as we could from the Internet. We found a visual guided tour which we could see from our telephone in English, if the need should arise. In the end we joined the proper Guided tour in Finnish and our Guide was brilliant, humorous and full of information and stories, the tour took an hour. He really brought the castle to life. When inside the castle, please be careful as it is a ruin and with steps dating back hundreds of years, it can be difficult to walk. Some of the rooms have been fitted with wooden floors to give some idea of what they looked like inside. After the tour we walked about 500 metres, through a field where sheep are kept, remembering of course to close the gate, to the house museum. It was built in the 1700's and I believe brought from the archipelago to its present site. It's a bit of a walk but well worth it. The house consists of four rooms, a dining room, a kitchen with a lot of utensils, a smaller single bedroom and a study or living room. The young lady looking after the house was very friendly and helpful. Back at the castle there is also a large picnic area I nice little cafe and a gift shop. Well worth a visit.

Great Place to Spend a Summer Day
Jul 2019
The 14th century castle ruins are excellent place to spend a summer day at. Besides castle ruins (which can be seen in about 2 hrs), there a nice picnic area (with park benches), a restaurant, outdoor theater. We spent a lazy summer day visiting this place.

I would like to especially mention that it was bit tricky for us to get to the castle and we got lost on the way despite GPS. Also there is no public transport to this place. So only way to get here is with own car or bicycle. Not sure why such a beautiful place is so hard and tricky to get to.

Not enough information
Aug 2019 • Couples
This is an amazing castle, but if there is no guided tour there is very limited information to enhance your visit. Luckily the little walk to the folk museum (again no information) is lovely and the friendly restaurant served a delicious lunch, so the visit itself deserves 4 stars. There is little or no public transport to the site but we came by taxi and arranged a pickup 2.5 hours later. Cost was around €34 one way from Ekenäs/Tammasaari.

It is a Castle Ruin, so it is far from complete! Thou said, it is still something to see and well worth a visit! Just a fun pace to see!!

14th century castle - partly in ruins
Jul 2018 • Couples
Roughly one hour drive from Hanko, the southernmost town in Finland. Smallish road leading to a relatively big parking lot. Can be also reached easily by a bicycle or motorbike.

The Raasepori Castle is quite an impressive sight in the middle of nowhere. Surrounding facilities are nice and clean; restaurant, café, toilets.

Tickets into the castle are affordable. Prepare to pay more for personal our scheduled tour guide.

Interior structures and stone walls are partly deteriorated. There are quite a lot of wooden stairs and uneven stone steps. A few boards with illustration that depict what purpose the chambers once had and also more detailed text about the history of the castle.

Very nice place. Not crowded even during hot summer day.

Rasevorg Castle where Swedish King charles VIII Karl Knutsson Bonde had court in the end of 1400 century. Really nice visit. Stears are narrow and old uneven so not for disabled or elderly visitors.

Small and nice Castle
Aug 2018 • Couples
Castles are rare in Finland. Raasepori Castle is quite small, but very intresting place to visit. It is a bit tricky to walk about in the castle if you have poor legs because the steps and floors are uneven.

Guided tour recommended

The castle isn't huge and going there without a guide could be a disappointment. But with someone depicting the activities that took place there when it was inhabitated, makes you appreciate the visit. At the time of construction, this part of Finland belonged to Sweden.

Good views
Aug 2018 • Family
I came here for a bit of sightseeing and I got very good views, but I got a bit bored of waling round all the rooms. There were a lot of helpful signs, they were also very funny as they had funny cartoons on. But I got round the when castle in half an hour so it's not very good to go for a day.
