It is an easy funicular ride to the castle with great views from the top. The castle itself is not very impressive or interesting

The tower is really worth to see, a short walk up to the castle and then the great viewing tower. The price of 4€ is really worth this view.

It's a must, when you visit Ljubljana. There is no entrance fee to get inside the walls, though you must pay if you want to go to the top of the tower. I reccommend a walk up to the castle, unless you want to get up with a funicular or a little train. The castle offers you some shops with... More

one of the best spots in Ljubljana. Easy "climbing" (you can go by by cable lift too) will award you witha nice view miles and miles arround Ljubljana. There you can find very good restaurant with tipical Slovene cuisine or more noble restaurant Strelec. But just a glass of wine or a cup of coffee will make your day nicer.

You can go there for romantic moments, business meating or dinner or with a family. There are few cafes and restaurants. They have great choice of premium wine. I realy recomend this place, because it's must go place if you are in Slovenia.

The castle sits atop a hill giving it a great view of the city and that's the best thing about it. The ticket only gets you into a tower and a couple exhibitions...it can be missed without much regret.

Visited the castle but with the exception of the views not much to see. Its an old castle with a modern inside . I expected more history. Also paid for the 3d show which was out of order. The city has much to offer and thank god we did not walk up the road

Ljubljana Castle is a beautiful visit. The view from the top is amazing. The exhibits within are well thought out and easy to understand. They pay tribute to many historical events, and I learned alot. Very cool

There is one excellent restaurant and one goood with affordable prices. Entrance to the castle courtyard is free, you had to pay for climbing the castle tower, which offers magnificent panorama of surroundings, including a view of Triglav, highest mountain of Slovenia. You can climb up to the castle by feet, which is my favourite to exercise a little or... More

Ljubljanski Grad is a hill of only 0,3 km2 but quite diverse and with well preserved natural forests and grassland, easily accessible from all foothills and with a comfortable turistic fortress offering one of the best views to the city and vicinity. Unfortunatelly, the fortress architecture is spoiled by some modern iron-concrete buildings, but superficially it is not so much... More
