This is a meh when it comes to the European castles. Skip the audio tour and go to the top of the main tower. The views are stunning and the best part of the castle. The prison portion is also interesting but that’s about it....More

We bought the Ljubljana Card and it saved us lots. All of the sites we visited in Ljubljana that had an admission were included along with boat tours, public transport, and walking tours. Great Value! We had visited the Castle about 15 years ago and...More

Besides the view from the tower nothing really made me feel it was worth going up to it. Plenty of more interesting places in the city.

Not much to see inside. Totally not worth the €7.50 to get it. The only saving grace of this place were with great views of the city from the viewing tower. Otherwise, don't bother.

The castle has a very interesting history as the displays inside reveal. A funicular makes it easily accessible. The clock tower is an easy climb and affords great views of Ljubljana. There are also the chapel and prison to tour.

We enjoyed our walk up to the castle. Once inside, we were very pleased at the exhibits explaining the castle and history. The audio guide was most helpful.

Worth the price of the funicular to get there. I think you only need to pay the castle entry if you’re going up the tower. There is outside dining with good coffee and desserts. This castle is so interesting with meld of modern structure supporting...More

the castle was amazing and had so much history. My only disappointment was that I could not get to all the places because I am in a wheelchair and could not see into all the nooks and crannies of the castle. It would destroy the...More

Great chunk of history of Ljubljana learned from the top of the city where the castle is located. Easy access from Krekov Torg by the funicular. Soon after the exit from the funicular, there are lots of panels with information of how and when the...More

There is no parking at the top. The two ways to get up are via walking or taking the funicular railway.

the dogs are allowed on the premises of the castle, but I am not sure about the funicular, you can always walk to the castle, very nice track
