I was in Bled for 4 days and loved every day there. As a matter of fact I still say to my wife of 40 years that I could spend the summer there. The castle was a great afternoon trip and after a walk about in the castle one could enjoy a great evening overlooking the city of Bled. Great... More

It is accessible by car or by climbing steps from the lake side. It is worth a visit for the view alone. Apart from the typical castle elements (which aren't great) there a couple of cafes and a restaurant. You can also help bottle your own bottles of wine (including corking, labelling and sealing with wax etc). If you visit... More

So to me this castle is a view point, not really a historical place. There are various little bits to do like a small ethnographic museum and a little wine shop etc, but to be honest they wouldn't be worth the entrance fee alone and we were done looking around everything in about 40 minutes. What is worth it is... More

What a location!! The views are amazing from Bled Castle. This was the best part in my opinion. The castle itself is nice but it's all about the view! Entrance was €9. There are some artefacts and a museum in some of the buildings and plenty of places to sit around to look at the view. Well worth a visit.

The castle and the view from the castle were spectacular. We loved the museum and the view left me speechless. There is even a wine shop which is run by the monks. We were exhausted because we walked all around the lake and then climbed what seemed like a million steps up to the castle. I recommend taking a cab... More

The hike up to the castle was quite easy, with paved and clearly marked trails, though bear in mind it is all uphill. The Castle itself is not so much in the way of actual castle tours, but the museum part was quite interesting. In particular I found the Ice Age history fascinating and they had some really good information... More

There's probably no better view of the lake than from the Castle of Bled. The cost to get into the castle is 9 Euros, or $US12 per person, and it's a fabulous place to take photos of the mountains, lake and city below. The interior of the castle is not very castle-like any more, it's been converted into a fairly... More

Bled Castle gives you fine elevated views over the lake and surrounding areas, and is worth the considerable climb to gat there, though you can take the bus. The views are truly amazing on a clear day. The castle itself is ok, with some decent artefacts on show, but really its all about the location. Its a good spot for... More

The castle was definitely worth the hike up the hill. Views are amazing and we would recommend stopping in the printing press for a unique souvenir.

Bled Castle is perched high on a cliff rising above a glacial lake with a romantic island and a church on it. The views are amazing and you can spend a few hours searching around the castle, enjoying a dinner or drink on the terrace. From the ground, you enjoy equally fantastic scenery. There are no motorized boats allowed on... More
