Castle was founded in the thirteenth century as the seat of the Bishopric of Ösel-Wiek. But the building of the castle as a defensive stronghold wasn't easy. The construction, widening and reconstruction of the stronghold went on throughout several centuries. Until in the 17th century it was no longer in use as a defensive building by the Swedes who now ruled the Swedish Estonian Province. After 1710 in Great Northern War Estonia fell under Russian rule and at the command of Peter I the castle walls were demolished.
To visit the towers and inside the castle you need to pay for 5€ fee to the museum. And it will take you straight to the middle age... and even few hours of your time!
The cache-point shows you the parking area just outside the castle.
