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.

Nothing wrong with the place itself but the guide was horrible and rude. Avoid him at all cost. He looks like a clown and talks like drunken parrot.

Nice place to walk, have a picnic and enjoy a good weather. There is a picnic infrastructure and clean restrooms as well as some stuff for kids outside (big swings on the old tree and smth else, not much, but better than nothing). If I remember correctly there is a kayak rentals nearby the fortress and a picturesque river where you can use it.

place worth visiting, beautiful nature and forest surrounds these old castle ruins. Admission to visit ruins was from adults 7€, parking was free. Parking was about 400meters from ruins, but there was a really nice path from parking to castle area.

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.

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.

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!!

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.
