We visited in the fall and it was perfect weather for a long walk around the castle, seaside, cliffs, and forests. They were working on a new visitor center. So, we will return in 2019 to see that and spend a week or two.

The day was sunny but windy. The site has a new visitor center that is very nice. Read the information inside before you visit the site.

Great views of the sea and forests from the top of the ruins. Amazing old structures. Has a Parking lot nearby but you’ll need to pay for parking. Also has a fine visiting center where you can buy ice cream food and other refreshments.

These ruins are called the largest castle in Northern Europe, an entity that is hard to define. The area is indeed large with a wall around it on top of a small mountain. A number of towers remain plus the impressive central fortress. The castle...More
