The castle was a good hike and interesting tour, but the best part is the views of the lake and the island! Definitely worth a trip up just to see the view.

Bled Castle is perched on top of an escapment overlooking Lake Bled and the surrounding countryside. Parts of it are 1000 years old like The Tower of London, and it is fantastically preserved. You can walk up to the Castle from Lake Bled via a winding path, but be aware it is very steep and it might be an idea... More

Essentially you pay the steep entrance fee for the view you get, otherwise the castle really hasn't much to see or offer. But yes, the view does deserve more than a mention...too pretty!

You can make your way to the top of this castle by vehicle or walk up the stairs from the lake. It doesn't take long but for those that have minimal fitness might find it challenging. The castle itself is stunning. You'll find the most beautiful scenery from the top and lots to look at and see. The locals are... More

We visited this castle with a guide from our 40-person tour group. You certainly are able to do it on your own but I was glad that we had the extra information from the guide. Most impressive are the views from the castle. Note that it is a steep climb to the entrance. But, you can pace yourself and stop... More

The castle is built on the cliff of the mountain. Got a really interesting history and also you can enjoy the view to the lake. Got a honey shop and a champagne shop. The museum is really good to see it. There is a restaurant if you want to have some coffee or tea!
