Just a 1,5h drive from the capital, provincial town Rakvere is eager to welcome you! Have a short drive discovering Rakvere city and capture your energy for a rise up to the Vallimägi hill. Rakvere Stronghold offers you an exceptional visit back to the dusky medieval times.

You will have a guided tour in the castle and step back in time to the 16th century. You will enjoy a theatrical welcome, as you are asked for a password by the warrior of the castle to enter the premises. Those who wish can wear a cape of the Knight of the Order. Thereafter a visit of the roundel will follow as you get acquainted with the history of the Livonian Order and Rakvere Castle. You will also see the sword exhibition, chapel and the chamber of science. Shooting a bow and arrow will come next as you learn the most fascinating local legends.  Before the bravest one of you all may visit the chamber of torture, you will also learn the art of making black gunpowder and pass an obstacle course, as a true warrior must be fast and deft. You will have to navigate an obstacle course with moving bags without making any contact with them at all.

The tour displays a Death Room and even Hell. Then it is the time to return to the nice daylight and admire the great view over the city and beautiful nature from the canon tower.

We will enjoy a 2-course lunch before taking some free time for photos and exploring on your own.

We will take you back to Tallinn, full of great memories.
