This is a more or less obligatory site to visit. It really is a most impressive ancient castle, which mixes battlements with panoramic views. Take the fernicular railway up, but the walk down is well worth undertaking too.

The authentic looking exterior is not matched by the very modern and extensive rebuilding inside. The walls from the outside look impressive and tower above you. On the inside a majority of the internal walls are covered in modern structures that house exhibitions and restaurant....More

We walked up the nice pathway to the Castle as we needed the exercise. Great views, interesting puppet museum. We’re disappointed that the coffee shop only had sweets in the afternoon as my wife wanted something more substantial, but not a meal at their restaurant....More

Took the mandatory trip up the mountain using the funicular today and got a birds eye view of Ljublijana and the snow capped mountains surrounding the city. Nice!

We bought tickets to do the full tour of the castle without realising that most parts of the castle are free to enter. It’s €13 including the funicular so not too expensive. The Funicular railway is definitely the easiest way to get to the top...More

This Castle has been renovated but not restored to historical perspectives. Great views of the city. Prominent structure seen from Old Town. Just look up. Photo op.

The castle was very basic and not worth the money. For the price you pay, you would expect something more, which the castle didn’t have. Very overpriced as well and could not believe you also had to pay for the lift. Also had to pay...More

Ljubljana's magnificentcastle stands on the site of several former defensive buidlings in a hilly area of land stratching away to the south of old town. The main points of interest for visitors are the outlook tower, which was built in the 19th century. The tower's...More
