The castle itself is pretty but a little run down. The gardens are beautiful. Due to the pandemic the castle is closed to visits but the gardens are admirable.

Cool place for a walk or a stroll. There's a tourist information in the castle's ground floor. It's worth checking out the monument in the back. Great place for taking some atmospheric photos :)

The monument was quite impressive, the carnage of the first world war is quite disturbing.

Regretfully I have to give them a 3, not because of the food but because of their attitude. From the outside you don't get the idea that you will get good local food here. It gives a cheap first impression. We sat down for a drink and were surprised with the food that showed up. I choose for filleted trout which was Devine but not better than my partners omelet with truffel. They have an amazing cheese trolly and the desert trolly is to die for. The lunch menu is a bargain. If only the staff can't get their attitude right!

The memorial of the battle of the Marne is very beautiful and very moving. It is a must to visit. Incredible.

Kastelholma Castle

First record of Kastelholma (or Kastelholm) castle is from the year 1388 in the contract of Queen Margaret I of Denmark, where a large portion of the inheritance of Bo Jonsson Grip was given to the queen. The heyday of the castle was in the 15th and 16th centuries when it was administrated by Danish and Swedish kings and stewards of the realms. Kastelhoma was expanded and enhanced several times.

In the end of 16th century castle was owned by the previous queen Catherine Jagellon (Stenbock), an enemy of the King of Sweden Eric XIV. King Eric conquered Kastelholma in 1599 and all defending officers were taken to Turku and executed. The castle was damaged under the siege and it took 30 years to renovate it.

In 1634 Åland was joined with the County of Åbo and Björneborg and Kastelholma lost its administrative status.
