Description

Korsholm Castle (Finnish: Korsholman linna, Swedish: Korsholms slott, also known as Chrysseborg) was a medieval castle in Vaasa, Finland. Korsholm was probably built in the 1370s. It is possible that the castle was never more than a wooden fortification, surrounded by a moat. By the late 18th century Korsholm was ruined, and new buildings built on the mound had destroyed any medieval remains. Today a low mound is all that remains of the castle.
