Rakvere Castle

The castle in Rakvere offers a lot of excitement for the entire family!

When you enter the castle, you will find yourself in a theme park representing the everyday life of the 16th century. There, both young and old visitors can spend an exciting day as they dress up as knights and warriors, enjoy various entertainers, and learn a thing or two about the life of people in the Middle Ages and the early modern period.

Additionally, there is a wine cellar, a torture chamber, a death room and a hell, a Red Lanterns Street, a medieval brothel, a barber's shop, and an alchemist's workshop.

Shenkenberg Tavern, which is located in the stronghold, offers meals made after medieval recipes.
