Castle from back when Åland was part of the big kingdom of Sweden. The castle has been rebuilt to large extents after fire but still is supposed to be fairly authentic to how it was. There is a treasure hunt for the kids that involve map reading and treasure chests puzzles which is a nice way to get the kids excited. Most parts has quite big stairs, so not the most accessible place. Also some of the highest part of the castle is not for the people scared of heights.
Kastelholm Castle is really lovely stone ruined castle surrounded by lake and meadows. Employees were really friendly and answered all our questions about the history of the castle. As a bonus, kids really enjoyed it too, while they looked for a treasure. This is how visiting a castle is fun for all the family :) In the last chamber we might dress into various costumes and it was super interesting for kids too. Totally recommended!
