We took the funicular twice up to the castle and enjoyed the exhibits of torture and the fabulous views from the terrace and the tower. The castle isn't exactly like Tower of London but great for a visit

Take a ride to the top of the hill and visit the castle - if only for the splendid view one gets across Ljubljana. The castle is very imposing and a great attraction to visit in its own right but it's the views that will take your breath away.

The Castle of Ljubljana was the unique place I was able to visit during my stay in the city. It is easy to reach and it is very nice. Within the walls there are several activities and places to visit. You can stay to drink something or simply stay in complete relax. Well organized.

It is really worth going on top of the hill to enjoy the view over Ljubljana and its region (you can even see the mountains in the distance if the sky is clear enough). Amazing place at sunset especially. The best is to follow one of the trail going up the slopes since they offer nice views from place to... More

Easy to go up and down. The expositions are quite simple and you can see a video explaining from the very beginning of the occupation of the hill till today. Good restaurants in the castle.

A visit to the castle is a must for everybody staying in Ljubljana. The funiculare lift gives a quick access to the top, but I can recommend the climbing of one of the walkways up to the castle. Then you can look at the variation of the views as you go. There are really many things to see and do... More

It was a very historical castle. The view from the tower was magnificent. You must see the historical, short video show including ticket price. Thanks to the funicular you can arrive easily.

The exhibits are not overwhelming, everything can be taken in at a leisurely pace. I guess the same can be said of the city in general. I particularly liked the performers milling about.
