Must see! Romantic and charming! Not so huge, you need 30min to see all the sights (museum, forge...). There are caffes and one restaurant with excellent view! First caffe, when you enter, has great coffe! Entrance is 9€ per person!

From the castle you have some incredible views of the lake, however there really isn't much inside, just a small museum and the things I thought I wanted to see like the blacksmithy and the wine cellar turned out to be shops selling those kinds of items rather than any sort of learning or interactive exhibit.There are far better castles...

The place is no less than amazing, all because of the view. Must see, don't think about it, it's 9 Euro for entrance which is expensive but you have to go. The castle is nice, interesting things to see, don't come too late so you will see original clothes and other things. And again the view is breath taking!

Great overviews of Lake Bled. Not much to see in the castle, but the view is nice. We felt like the forge, the print shop, and the winery were mainly there to sell things. Not really much of demonstration in any of these areas. The exhibits in the castle were interesting, but didn't really give you the feel of an... More

Steep but easy path up takes about 10 mins. The castle itself is nothing special - not worth the entry fee (9 Euro), so perhaps best to walk up and enjoy the views from the grounds outside. The 'museum' inside was very ordinary and uninspring, and other than take in the views there's nothing else to see.

Its not a castle per-say, its more like a biggish building. Its not that nice & the views from the lookouts either side of the castle are just as good & free. A better view is from the other side of the lake, that way you can get the island & castle in one shot, without the ugly town in... More

We went to the castle after a walk around the perimeter of the lake. You will have another 10-15 mins climbing stairs, but it is worth it. Although it wasn't the sunniest of days we were still amazed by the view up there, you can see all of the lake and the mountains in the distance, it was such a... 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.
