The views of the castle from the outside with walls and keep reflected in the waters of the surrounding moat are most attractive. The €6 entry fee affords one the ability walk the ramparts, ascend and descend narrow medieval stone stairways and view the rooms...More

The surroundings of the castle are well-kept. Very transparent. Easily accessible and noticed. The environment is also designed to be a pleasure to spend time with the children. Enjoying the spring even looking at the rare bird species in the area.

Kuressaare castle presents well preserved medieval fortification. It is an impressive historic site. Today it serves a site for concerts and other events. A few hours at minimum should be allocated to visit this great attraction.

You can see the castle for free without buying a ticket for the Museum, but can only view the outside. Nicely restored, with the views from the ramparts being especially good.

The castle and area around is really worth to visit. But the exposition inside could be better. Also a little bit information missing which doors you could open and find something and which ones are dead end. However to walk around and check this castle...More
