Perfect old castle on the hill just 100 metres from the centre of Ljubljana. Must see for anyone even local people love to go there.

There is a funicular station to take up to the Castle Hill. However, we prefer the alternative route to walk up the hill through a slope near the funicular station. It is not a difficult slope to walk, so would recommend walking up the Castle...More

Our tour group of 20+ visited the Castle for the day as the first visit stop. We went up the castle via the funicular, a short 5-min ride up. The ride was fine with nice view but the wait for the ride did take quite...More

The castle (grad) has the feel of a 1980s rebuild. There are shops and restaurants in the grounds which you can access without paying. You can get the view over the city from various places on the hill. There us little reason to buy a...More

We were offered a guided tour when we bought our funicular/castle tickets instead of an audio guide. We’re so glad we chose the time machine tour. There were only ten people on the tour. In addition to the information our tour guide gave us and...More

The castle has loads of great free things inside and honestly the best part about it is just looking at it from town. The tower is simply not worth it. The windows at the top are glassed over and there museum is while okay not...More

Access to the castle can be by car or local bus but there is a funicular around the back of the market square and it only costs €2 each way. The castle is very interesting with great views and a lot of information. But, unlike...More
