Located just above the 99 Steps is this Danish watch tower built in the late 1600’s.
Originally, the tower of the castle offered a perfect vantage point to spot enemy ships entering the harbor. Now, the property is a major tourist attraction that offers walking tours of it and the surrounding sites of Charlotte Amalie. Blackbeard’s Castle is open seasonally from October 20 through August 31 on Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 9:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m. Tours are both guided and unguided. In addition to the history on display and the many life-size pirate statues on the property, Blackbeard’s Castle also has pools and a view of the picturesque Charlotte Amalie harbor.
