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.

We walked up to the castle and back, it's a nice walk, a bit difficult in parts if you're not young and fit.
The castle is really nothing special. The views of Ljubljana are beautiful, even in the rainy weather.

We went on a rainy day so you couldn't see the scenery too well. The castle itself has undergone too much modernisation, it doesn't feel genuine. The virtual castle is just a short video. The furnicular was fun though.

The train ride up to the Castle offered a lovely view of Old Town Ljubljana. Upon arrival the sightseeing was lovely, but that was about it.

I do not know why some folks are so hard on the castle in the reviews here. We had a great time. We rode the funicular up and walked back down. The only drawback for us was that it was pretty cloudy and a little foggy so the views were not as good from the top of the castle tower as they would be on a clear day. You can see the whole thing in half a day easily including lunch at the restaurant which was excellent --- probably a bit expensive. The castle has a few dungeons too explore, a virtual tour (not that great), the viewing tower and a couple other vantage points, and the very nice St. George's chapel. You can also visit a museum of Slovenian history which mainly displays replicas of real artifacts on display at the museum in town.
