As a castle destination this is not particularly exciting, but the view from the tower observation deck is worth the visit, even with the walk up the many steps to reach the top.

Stopped off here on the way from Graz to Venice and wanted to check this place out. Glad we did! A very cool castle experience with remarkable views of a beautiful city!

Great viewpoint, panorama view and elevator ride is great! One thing that I didnt liked is crowded with restaurants that hides great spots.

Great external appearance but steep climb unless you use the railowayfrom the river side. Interiors all rebuilt very few original walls still visible. The castle in the cliff at Predjama near Postojna caves is much better.

We played the game of Escape the Castle and we had a lot of fun. It was harder than we had expected and it took us a couple of tries to complete the challenge. We really enjoyed our visit.

The Ljubljana fort offers not much in museum quality pieces. But it is an interesting site to look at how European forts and castles were built. The view from its walls and tower are excellent 360 degrees around. The funicular going up and down could...More

If you’re expecting a “British Castle”, you’ll be disappointed. There isn’t actually much of the structure to see or history to learn about. The castle has been converted into civic and entertainment spaces, to the detriment of a typical castle experience. It’s all a bit...More

Most of the interior of the castle is new due to a fire but the outer walls are older and the views of the city and surrounding mountains from the tower are great. It is a nice, slightly strenuous hike up the hill or you...More

the dogs are allowed on the premises of the castle, but I am not sure about the funicular, you can always walk to the castle, very nice track
