We did not enter the castle since it was almoust closing time, but we did walk around the outdoor museum area around the castle. Nice place to visit with children (nice playgrounds and sheep), but also interesting history for adults as well.

It's a must-see to understand the history of the Åland archipelago. The buildings are impressive. Audioguide is included in the entry price which is rare enough to be pointed out.

You follow the route through the castle and thankfully all the signs are also in English so easy to follow and learn about the castle and a lot of the history of the area and the islands.

Easy to find and visit on a way to Bomarsund fortress. Worth of visit, there is marked route through the castle and information boards telling about history of the castle. If you pay 1 euro more for ticket, you can visit also the prison museum.
