At least they could have given a coupon if you ate at one of the restaurants or bar. There is no question but the view is great, but not 360 degree. More 180 of the lake. The Castle is much less a restored historic building than a venue for as number of restaurants. In fact, it seems quite modern inside.... More

We decided to drive up instead of hike but next time I would definitely hike it. There are some amazing views of the lake and island. The 8 euro entrance fee is a little steep considering that the castle is not preserved as a traditional castle but is more of a museum but it was still very nice to tour.... More

Nice place to visit. Small museum. Decent restaurant with fantastic outside seating (when weather is OK), overlooking the lake and the town. You can drive up to the castle or hike up the hill.

In Bled it is all about the views. The two most famous attractions in this small beautiful town are the castle and the small island with the beautiful church in the middle of it. With good planning, one day is enough to visit both. We went to see the castle after we visited the island. We did not find out... More

The castle stands on a rock about 100 m above the lake it grants a fantastic view of Lake Bled, the town of Bled and of the wider countryside of the Gorenjska region. Reaching the castle is possible by an endless staircase upwards or by a little train that leaves from the centre of the city regularly. Entrance for the... More

Went up to the castle in Bled for sightseeing. We decided to stay there and have a quick lunch. The lunch was decent and the view was great.

This medieval castle high up above the beautiful Lake Bled dates back to at least the 1100's. The original town was apparently here. Although it is interesting the most impressive aspects are the views of Lake Bled on a clear sunny day. There is a café and restaurant, a small museum, a tiny chapel and a printing shop where there... More

It the early morning sun the views from the castle are stunning. Suggest you take the tourist bus up or get a taxi or horse and cart up and then walk down. Lovely restaurant at the top as well as a really interesting wine cellar run by a monk!!

I do understand that if I pay entrance fee I somehow support this historical site, but still I find it a little bit expensive.
