Quite a steep hike to the very top. We went when it was rainy and did not have any issues with the trail. The top of the castle provides an excellent view of the lake and surrounding area. We highly recommend going to see Andrei the monk and bottling your own wine!! Also, check out the print shop. We found... More

At 9 euros per person we expected to see a castle. It is mostly empty but does offer a great view of Lake Bled. If you want a good picture of the lake, better to tale a walk or drive around it.

The views of the castle up on its hill are currently partly obscured by scaffolding, which is a pity for photographs, but apparently there will soon be a wider range of exhibits after renovations end this month. There isn't a huge amount to see within the castle, in terms of the time you'll need, but the museum exhibits are extremely... More

Great place to visit once in Bled area. They are preparing for summer busy season so, there were lots of construction … still, very very nice experience.. One minus: restaurant , the only place that you can have cup of coffee, sandwich or water, opents at 11.00. We were there at 1050 and they didn’t want to make us cup... More

The castle is perched high above Lake Bled. We had an overcast day but could still enjoy a great view. It would be gorgeous on a sunny day.

Castle is undergoing some work but is still worth a visit. Inside the castle area you can be served wine by a monk and he knows what he is talking about! There is also a small gift shop, a restaurant with stunning views and a print shop. We walked round without a guide so definitely missed out on some of... More

The castle in Bled is one of the dominant features so, by that token, it is already an essential place to go. It is a bit of a hike to get up there, one I would not want to try in the rain. When we did ours it was the day after a lot of wet weather and the wooden... More

I really enjoy visiting museums and try to do so whenever I am visiting different places. Although the view from the castle is pretty spectacular and the castle itself is quite pretty, I was rather underwhelmed by the museum itself. However, if you are looking for a great view of Bled and are happy to pay the €9 entry fee,... More
