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.

“Beautiful place”
Reviewed January 25, 2013

You have to see the castle when in Ljubljana. We had dinner there, very nicely organised by a local agent, and the atmosphere was perfect, the food (from a caterer was excellent), and the service very professional.
The Castle is impressive, and the view is beautiful, especially at night.

“Gorgeous castle overlooking the Old Town”
Reviewed January 16, 2013

The Castle is set on a hill overlooking the Old Town. You can either get the funicular up or you can walk up in about 10minutes from many different paths and from opposite sides of the Old Town. We went to the castle twice. The first time we bought the all inclusive ticket which was a return journey on the funicular and tickets to see the exhibition and the clock tower and cost €8 per person.
The views from the Clock Tower are amazing so worth the ticket!
The second time we went to the castle we walked up and back again - it's a really nice walk. There is a great restaurant inside the castle too so make sure you go for lunch.

“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.
