As others have said, the hike up is rough, but the views are wonderful. Maybe if you're younger and athletic it would be easier. The museum is fairly small and can be done quickly. Unfortunately, the day we visited it was cloudy, foggy and rainy, but we were still able to get a few good pictures between the clouds.

I was totally unprepared for the beauty of the Bled area. This is a place to take long walks and just chill out. I did chill out as the temperature was just above freezing. After recouperating from the climb up to the castle, it is truly "breathtaking". The museum was fantastic. The only minus was that the print shop was... More

It's a good hike to get up to the castle, but the reward is a decent view of Lake Bled. The castle itself has a fairly steep entrance fee which doesn't really seem like value for money - especially if you've already visited other castles in Eastern Europe.

Beautiful, beautiful and beautiful! We hv started our travel from the Bled lakeside which overseas the whole lake and castle from the lakeside opposite the castle location. It's beautiful to see from down under the castle! We then adjunct to the castle. Bit of steep walk up, short but breath taking sceneries, so didn't feel any hardness to climb up... More

you are met with such a miraculous sight of Lake Bled. The view alone is absolutely worth the entrance fee—even though there is a chapel, restaurant, two courtyards, a museum, printing works, and a wine cellar.

The castle was a good hike and interesting tour, but the best part is the views of the lake and the island! Definitely worth a trip up just to see the view.

Bled Castle is perched on top of an escapment overlooking Lake Bled and the surrounding countryside. Parts of it are 1000 years old like The Tower of London, and it is fantastically preserved. You can walk up to the Castle from Lake Bled via a winding path, but be aware it is very steep and it might be an idea... More

Essentially you pay the steep entrance fee for the view you get, otherwise the castle really hasn't much to see or offer. But yes, the view does deserve more than a mention...too pretty!
