Owner description: A mighty medieval fortress, a symbol of the Slovenian capital Ljubljana is an interesting tourist point, the idyllic grounds for long strolls just a glance away from the lively city centre. The Ljubljana castle offers many cultural, historic and entertaining events throughout the year.

Nice views of the town, interesting ride up with the lift, but the castle itself feels like a very sterile museum layout, nothing much to see.
I have been to other castles in Central Europe, hence i find this really only so-so. Go if you have time,

well worth the visit especially using the funicular, which is close to main square. Lovely views from the top and well worth going up the tower for the higher view

Nice view on a beautiful day, but hardly worth the 3 euro ride. The tramcar leaves you off in a large, modern concrete stucture, criss crossed by stairs reminiscent of a subway station The castle itself was hardly more interesting. Only one large gallery was accessible on our visit. There is a restaurant in the courtyard with outdoor seating , though it seems to be in perpetual shade

I was surprised at how much renovation had been done to this castle. It's an old historic castle which has been rebuilt with added sections allowing visitors to sit and have coffee, walk out on the turets and enter sections which have otherwise been destroyed. A remarkable place. Definitely visit the castle to get a view of the entire city scape. A great place to see the sun set.

Easy climb to the castle on hill-top. Quite "modern" looking because it is in use as a real building. Great views across the city. Plenty of variety in ways to go up and down.
