It's a beautiful castle with a lot of history. You can find many exhibitions, and each exhibition has its own story to tell. You need to buy a ticket.

Beautiful medieval castle. To get inside the castle you need to buy a ticket. 10€ for an adult. Since we were short of time, we just walked around the castle grounds. There is an old windmill. Well maintained environment.

Lovely museum! The exhibitions were nicely organised, interesting and informative. The castle itself is also very well-kept and newly renovated. A must if you're visiting Kuressaare!

Amazing castle inside and beatiful outside. Make sure you visit it in the evening to see it in the night lights. Adult ticket 10€, but there is a family ticket 25€ too.

Really cool castle and museum. The museum may come forward as bit non-systematic and perhaps could benefit from more general exhibition (true focus on Saaremaa, and it is understandable) or more modern exhibition. But the castle is great, great views to the fortifications and true feel of a medieval castle living. The park within the fortifications and around the picturesque central castle is free and is worth a visit even without visiting the central castle.

Very interesting place, many exhibitions, which are very professionally prepared. To visit the castle and really enjoy all the attractions of the 🏰 a few hours are recommended. Good for children, interesting lesson of regional history starting from vikings. Recommended

Well preserved castle with museum inside. There is possibility to go up to the castle wall where great view opens.

Day 2 - A 6 hour 340km mainly forested drive and short ferry hop from Riga in Latvia to Saaremaa Island in NW Estonia. The main purpose being to visit fairy tale Kuressaare castle. If you like castles then you will like this one. Gorgeous day out and I’m getting used to trees!🌲🌲🌲

One of the must visits when in Kuressaare. Almost every year there’s something new. Exciting and historical, picturesque.

Must see object in Saarema. Went there with family, took a walk on the walls without going inside. Took arrow shooting activity and in total 2 hours were gone. It means, that if you wish to visit the castle inside and have thorough excursion, you should plan half a day for sure.

Best maintained medieval castle in the Baltic countries, the visit is worth it. Now, look all reviews here they describe perfectly what you will see in this castle. I will add that it is easy to park, to eat or drink in a beautiful terrasse, walk and take benefit of the sea smell as the castle is just in front of the sea.

As of June 2023 it was 10 Euros for standard entry into the castle. To enter and explore the grounds it was free.

We opted for self guided but to get the most out of a visit its best to do a guided tour or opt for an audio guide.

Suprisingly large and interesting exhibition of local nature and history, lots of corridores and rooms and floors and 2 towers to visit. In case you are interested in local history consider 2-3 hrs to go through it all.

Incredible castle and grounds with many varying exhibitions. Some areas are dedicated to the history of the castle, some to the history of Saarema, some sections to nature of the island and some to the history of occupation by the Soviet Union and Nazi's during world war 2 upto 1991 when Estonia regained it's Independence. It was a great surprise to see these other exhibits as I only expected to seethe medieval history of the area. The castle is like a rabbit Warren and we often found ourselves going up and down tiny staircases. The cafe at the top of the main tower gives amazing views and very reasonable prices for drinks and snacks. An absolute must see when in Saarema.

Extremely beautiful place, great outdoors. Historical facts presented. Children friendly, they even have a small playground. Entrance fee in the castle is 10€ per person.

So much to see and so nicely done. We didn't go into the special exhibits, but they looked interesting. Even if you don't want to go inside, you can just walk around on the outside.

Castle with a great atmosphere. Unfortunately it's not possible to take a photo of the whole complex because there is no point with such a view.
Inside there is a big exposition of books and historic exposition going through whole eras and for some reason the most of the stuff is from the Soviet era - there is even a whole apartment from that era and the Elamu Soviet dwelling which I consider best and as well showing how crazy era this was. And the whole exposition for about one hour, maybe more, is for free - so you save money for the coffee which they are making in the top of the tower 😉
