    A must visit attraction in Ljubljana that you will see from almost everywhere in town. The views from the castle and watch tower are awesome. Entrance to the courtyard is free but the tower isn't

    Great 360° view over the city. Small tour costs 3 eur for students which is great value for money since you get access to the tower, museum of slovenian history and virtual castle tour. Loved it! :)

    Pay ONLY 2,20€ for the elevator on the way up and just wander inside the citadel walls. Then just walk down one of the trails around the castle. Nice citadel though with nice cafés!

    Best city view from top of the tower, must buy ticket and climb! Also you will learn a lot about the history of Slovenia in the museum. I can hardly stop my tears while reading about the World War II.

    2 reach it, several small paths lead up frm old town, v took the path via the Studentovska pot. Ahem, a certain fitness level is required..pant..pant, or take the funicular next to the Puppet Theatre.

    Entrance fee of 7,50 euro for the tower is too much. Just spend 2,20 euro on the funicular for the way up, wander around and take one of the paths down to the center.

    I don't really like castles but this one impressed me. It's a perfectly renovated Castle that combines fancy modernity with ancient elements. Very elegant! Great view and nice restaurants.

    St. George's Chapel is one of the oldest parts of Ljubljana Castle. It is decorated with 15th century frescoes and 1747 wall paintings of the coats of arms of provincial governors.

    They want you to pay 7,5 euros just to climb a small tower. You don't have an option to just quickly access the castle.It's better to explore the castle gardens, it's really beautiful and not crowded.

    Great view of the city. Cute and of course touristy but worth a visit. Calligraphy bookmarks with your name/text are cool;)
  • Alina M.
    In the chapel there is a guy who can calligraph your name on a bookmark - looks amazing! He knows a lot about chapel too and is very talkative-just ask :)Don't miss virtual castle - dragon story rocks

    Amazing views on the city and the mountains. The castle museum is fun and very informative on Slovenia's history.

    Perched on top of Castle Hill and dominating the city skyline to the south, Ljubljana’s magnificent castle is one of the city's main attractions. Read more

    Not too big, not too impressive, and is actually a mix of old and new architecture. Good location for picnic, bring some snacks and enjoy.

    Very good for children, as you can have a coffee in peace when the little ones run around!

    Generally it's okay, but except of the viewing tower not that special. There are many ways closed and the nice parts of the castle are not accessible.
  • Marta G.
    Free wifi around the bar inside the castle. You can also visit many parts of the castle for free including some of the towers.

    There's a nice view of the city from the viewing tower but other than that, it was nothing special. Very difficult to navigate

    Ljubljana castle, stars and great movie..splendid!
  • Christine L.
    Underwhelming for the €7.50 price. It seems you can roam the premises w/o a ticket though. But you’ll need one to climb the tower.
