A very good presented castle. Ingormative signs. Treasure hunt for small children, stunning views. The prison museum and outdoor museum was well worth the visit. Beautiful.

We visited the Castle on Sunday, so there was no restaurant or evev a cafe nearby. The castle is repaired and there was a guided tour. Nearby there is a rural museum and an old jail (now museum). Worth visiting while in Åland.
