Create an itinerary including Kaunas Castle
Located at the edge of old town Kaunas, Kaunas Castle represents a Gothic-style castle thought to have been built during the mid-14th century. The castle served as a strategic military outpost that guarded nearby cities and the roads between important trade routes. By the start of the 21st century, only approximately a third of the original castle remained intact. It was renovated in 2011, but some of the original walls remain. Climb the stairs to the upper levels for expansive views of the surrounding town and scenery. You can walk within the walls for free, or pay to go into the round tower where you'll find an art gallery. Plan your visit to Kaunas Castle and a wealth of other attractions, well-known and undiscovered, using our Kaunas day trip website.

  • I was a victim of expectations. This is the iconic photo of Kaunas you always see. I was under the false impression that it was a complete castle. When I got there, I was quite let-down to find it...

  • It freshen up my eyes
  • It was incredible. I loved the castle, its location and all its surroundings, appart from the view of the river and the nature. A good way to start my trip in Lithuania.
