Rakvere Castle

The castle offers many exciting activities for both children and grown-ups! You can try your hand at shooting a bow or a crossbow, sword fight and pike battle, forging, pottery, minting your own castle coins, and many other things. There's an exposition of the castle's history, historical weapons, and a torture chamber.

The castle cellar also offers wine tasting and is a home to Schenkenberg’s Pub offering meals made according to medieval recipes. Here you’ll also find an old Swedish cannon, and a display of a medieval brother and a barber’s shop.
