I did the Time Travel tour--an interesting and fun way to experience a historic site so kudos to them for coming up with that. Views not so great as it is hazy with the heat, but one can get a better sense of the City Center and Old Town. Many of the exhibit halls are not air conditioned--which is understandable... More

Very well done rehab of an old castle. Virtual Castle video is informative and the torture exhibit was very cool. Giant storm came through making the tower visit even more exciting.

Take the little train up from Ljubljana to the castle. A very interesting building with lots of history and many displays to tell you about it. The views are stunning especially from the tower.

Interesting castle with dungeons & museum. Daily choice of castle tours at reasonable cost. Good view of city from viewing points & excellent venue for dinners & parties. Travelled there by cable car but walked down along winding path which was a pleasant stroll. Good outdoor cafe area but restaurant on viewing gallery level seemed exclusive, pretentious & overpriced .... More

We took the guided tour of the castle grounds and found it a worthwhile way to learn about the history of the property. The caslte museum is also worth a visit as it offers remarkable insights into the history of all of Slovenia.

A very windy path and in parts steep, but the most amazing views. Highly recommend. The young man in the souvenir shop spoke perfect English and there was also a lovely ice-cream/cafe shop at the top.

This castle is not grand, like so many of Europe's castles. However, if you are in Ljubljana, you must see it. Take the funicular to the top and enjoy the view of this lovely small town

Hiking to the castle isn't too tough, but a funicular is available. The castle walls provide great views from this perch high above the center of the old city.
