Haapsalu Bishop’s Castle

The Haapsalu Bishop’s Castle and Cathedral, which was established in the 13th century as the centre of the Saare-Lääne Diocese, is one of the best preserved castles in Estonia. 
Interesting facts: * You might encounter Estonia’s most famous ghost – the White Lady. * In the moat, you will find a stylized medieval children’s playground. Climb the 38-metre-high bell tower and at noon listen to the carillon that is heard throughout the city. * In the summer, take advantage of the busy events calendar.

Castle Museum is closed for conservation and reconstruction works. Castle grounds are open as usual. See you again at the museum in 2019!
