I preferred to walk to the top of the hill (just hard to find parking near Bled lake). The castle is nice, and there are good views but nothing to impressive. We came just in... read more

If you're in Bled you need to visit the castle. It's the best way to get some of the most amazing views of the lake, church on the island, and Julian Alps. The wine is also cheap too -- and good. Love the castle.

I preferred to walk to the top of the hill (just hard to find parking near Bled lake). The castle is nice, and there are good views but nothing to impressive. We came just in time for one of the shows which makes it more interesting for the kids to watch. They have it twice a week, at 5pm during... More

A wonderful castle perched on the rocky outcropping above the lake. It's visible from pretty much everywhere around the lake. A hike to the top isn't too strenuous and is definitely worth it for the view. From here you can see the whole lake and the island with its church. The castle is a bit pricey to enter and you...

In my opinion the best view of the lake and the restaurant is amazing and highly worth the visit ... The experience offers the whole package with a view and for those interested in museums it is meters from the restaurant and the best view of the lake!!! Don't forget your camera and i went on a quiet rainy day... More

The entrance fee is 9 euros but its definitely worth it! The view is amazing and the castle itself is interesting as well. Exhibition in the museum is just ok. Nothing special.

A tourist highlight of Bled with the views and crowds to match. Go early in the day (even if just to be able to park). Wonderful views from the terrace and an interesting museum. Very good pizzeria on the road down from the castle!

This is quite a steep climb up from Bled. There are various ways to get there - car, bus, steep,shingly climb, walking up the steps. Most people seem to be in bus tours. There's plenty to see up at the castle and a decent cafe and gift shop. The views fro here are fantastic and well worth climb! Like everything... More

The views are beautiful from the castle and definitely worth the visit, especially if you are a photographer. The rest of the museum and the castle wasn't terribly exciting.

Have to admit. ..I expected a lot and I didn't met all expectations. Bled lake is beautiful and relatively small. Colour of the lake is amazing. Clean. What I didn't like? Its too expensive! Comparing with Bohinj and I like Bohinj more. Here u can find lot of restaurants but hardly u can find any shop. You can rent rowing... More
