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.

“Great view from the tower”
Reviewed January 16, 2013

The entrance fee was worth it to go up to the top of the tower and see the view - a great way to get oriented to the city. The rest of the castle seemed really commercialized and fake to me. I did think that the free outdoor "library" was a really cool concept - you just chill under a tree and borrow a book and enjoy the nice weather.

“worth a visit”
Reviewed January 7, 2013

The castle is worth a visit and view from there is very good. It is a steep climb to the castle but worth it in the end. There is a lift to the castle so if you do not want the walk you can use the lift, do not know if there is a fee.

“A Perfect View of the City!”
Reviewed January 4, 2013

While visiting friends from Slovenia they took us to the castle by way of the lift. The grounds inside the castle walls, or the court yard are manicured and well kept, the walk-ways stone. If you feel like climbing a little higher you can go to the top of the castle walls and the view is amazing. One can see for miles from the top of the castle walls and Ljubljana is a very beautiful old world city in many ways. With in the walls of the castle you will find a cafe with out of this world sweets! Yummm!

“beautiful scenery!”
Reviewed January 3, 2013

Absolutely loved the walk up to the castle. Snow capped mountains in the background, the bridges, churches and the buildings of the old town create a stunning view. The castle itself was not so impressive. The cafes at the castle seemed nice.
