  • This castle is worth the 1.5 hour drive from Riga. It is quite large and well maintained. It has several very interesting 3-D graphic video clips in the towers. Besides the towers, be sure you also...

  • It was really nice place. I’m not fan of castles but I had nice time there. We spend over 2 hours. Make sure that you climb to the top of towers and also watch the “history of the castle” in a show...

  • Great big castle where you can explore some of the areas using candle lanterns as a light source, gives you an authentic experience. There is a cool video and sound exhibition in one of the towers. With the same ticket (10€) you get access to the musem located in the same castle. Together both these take around 2 hours to explore. Definitely worth the time.
  • Honestly fantastic place! The ruins are stunning, it's really cool to walk up in the towers. The castle park is nice too. The staff at the castle was very friendly and helpful. DO NOT miss the museum - it was truly amazing! 100% recommended.
