Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Medieval castle complete with torture chamber.

Some of the structure has been restored but not all.

The yard in the rear has been modified to accommodate festivals.

Worth a stop if in the area.

Beautiful castle from the outside, especially late afternoon and evening when everything is lit up. Nice place to circle

They have games and animals for the children. The gift shop is great for kids, also. There are people dressed in period costume with crafts and demonstrations.

We visited here through a cruise ship tour, so got a full tour of the castle, got to try some vodka, then had lunch in the castle. Definitely worth the trip, it's like stepping back in time once you are inside.

It was a nice surprise to find out that they provide fun activities inside. Also different domestic animals such as goats, horses, ponies and goose were walking around loose.

Recommended for everyone from kids to grannies. Not wheelchair-accessible, though.

We took a guided tour and learn a lot about middle ages, knights, alchemy, everyday life. They perform a few shows that are really interesting for kids and adults.

Fun day trip destination. Went with my boyfirend and we both liked it a lot. There are free roaming animals, a chance to try your skills on a bow and mini crossbow, some informational rooms and tours about history and they fire a cannon once a day.

Rakvere town itself has really nothing to offer except this grand castle which absolutely is worth a visit !
Inside the thick and majestic castle walls you will find lots of activities !
People dressed in medieval costumes make your visit extra special and exciting . You really feel like you’ve just been transported several hundred years back in time .
Don’t miss this place ! Strong recommendation .

At least half of the things in the castle were not operating but we still had to pay the full price, 11€ per person, so it was definitely not worth it at all. The castle itself had barely any of the normal things available, so basically the only things to do were different activities for kids and looking at farm animals.

The torture chamber was open at least, so I gave 2/5 because of that. This was quite cheap looking but something different at least, especially the ”walk through hell”.

Maybe it would be worth the price if everything was open and if you were traveling with kids, but otherwise, there are much nicer castles available in the balkans and even in Estonia.
