I was reading many of the more negative recent reviews and can't really agree with many of the comments. The view is spectacular and there is actually quite a bit to warrant a few hours. The 12-minute movie is of high quality, the National Geographic exhibit is highly recommended and the museum is actually quite good.

The castle dominates the city skyline and is a great place for views of the city and beyond. It's such a short walk from town, it's well worth the effort.

The castle is nice and the views are quite good from the tower. The museums inside are not so interesting, and there aren't many things to see in the castle.

You can get to the castle via funicular which costs about €4.40 return (adult) when we were there July/Aug 2014. Entrance to different exhibits in the castle cost extra but I think you can walk around the grounds for free. The views over the city from the top of the tower are wonderful and would be the highlight of the... More

The castle is renovated in a modern style, the access is very good even for people with disabilities. It is a nice walk, but I would recommend just to buy a funicular ticket (if you do not fancy a walk or a drive) and look around the castle, make some photos. If you wish, you can go for the viewing... More

The castle has been restored over the years but now includes lots of modern materials, class front walls etc. As such it has lost a lot of it's original character. This aside it is still worth a visit. From the approach using the Funicular Railway, to the views over the walls etc. The best view is from the clock/viewing tower.... More

There's no better way to get a panoramical view of Ljubljana and its surroundings then by going up to the tower of the castle.

The funicular ride to and from the castle saved us a longer walk, but if it was a nicer day I think we would have walked up there. The castle itself is pretty and nice to wander around with a free viewing terrace so you can see down over the city. We had bought the Ljubljana tourist card so the... More

After coming straight from Salzburg and seeing how their restoration of their castle compares with the Ljubljana castle I shake my head in disgust. I know the castle is a landmark, the soul of the city and an event centre but given how old it is it should be taken back to its original status and not moderned to lose... More
