Trip Planner: Europe / Estonia / Laane-Viru County / Rakvere / Rakvere Castle
Take in the view from the ramparts, see the horrors of torture chambers, and taste genuine medieval recipes at Rakvere Castle. The site of the castle has been used as a stronghold since ancient times; much of the current structure took shape in the 14th century during Danish rule and the rule of the knights of the Livonian Order. Throughout its history, the castle saw a lot of combat and changed hands on numerous occasions. Today, visitors can fully immerse themselves in a medieval atmosphere through reenactments, tours, and exhibits. Don't miss the chance to learn some traditional skills, such as marzipan making, blacksmithing, or sword fighting. Some activities and tours need to be booked in advance; you can do it online.

Rakvere Castle reviews
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.

One of the best guided tours I had. The guide was very knowledgeable, with good sense of humor. Expositions in the castle are very informative and interesting. We were here with a group of school kids of 11-12 y.o. and everyone really enjoyed the tour. :) Highly recommended :)
Great experience!! It is a proper fort with live show of cannon being fired and different stations like archery, a sword room, torture chamber with a dark hell room! Overall a great experience for kids and adults alike. The gift shop also has cool gifts and wooden swords , axes and slings for children.
