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.

One of the "view points" over Ljubljana, and the only one right in the center of it (if you ignore tall buildings).
The castle itself is quite nice, well preserved.
The only reason I wouldn't give it 5 points, is the ridiculous demand to pay to actually go to the tower, where the best view point is.

We were unfortunate as it was misty during our trip to Ljubjana so we didn't get to see the apparently great views. Having said that there is a lot to see and do so still worthwhile the visit. We went at night, which was quite spooky shrowded in the mist. The funicular railway to the top costs 8 euros return. There is an option to include the castle exhibition and viewing tower, however this had closed for the day when we got there. (the exhibition/viewing tower shut at 6pm, but the funicular and the rest of the grounds are open til 9pm). There are several bars and restaurants at the top, within the castle grounds. The castle is also in immaculate condition and very impressive.

At the risk of sounding a tad mean, as far as European castles go, this isn't going to win any prizes, but it's interesting enough and rather charming. I'd recommend getting the funicular up the hill - especially in Winter. From the top, you do get the most beautiful views over the city, and it was the first time we realised how spread out the place is.

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.

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.
