It is all about the view

You can see Lake Bled from the castle. That is the main attraction. It is quite a walk up to the castle. Not a great place for anyone with mobility issues.

You can drive straight up to the castle and parking is just 2 euros. I did not bother with the castle. Most of them are the same anyways. I visited this place just for the view of lake Bled and the island. You can never get tired of the views here. Entry is 10 euros.

Views in all directions over the lake make the climb to the top worthwhile. The castle itself is okay, rampart walk fun looking out over the countryside. Display in castle a museum, not much of original castle left to see. Lake views only.

The views are fantastic. Not only can you look out on the Lake, of course, by from the museum, for example, you can look out the other way towards the fields and the Alps. The castle itself isn't terribly much. Interesting museum with some local artifacts as well as discussion of the natural history of the area. It's €10 to... More

We enjoyed our time there, it's very historical and they present it in a creative way such like putting you in the environment of that history, there's many parts to see inside and enjoy it. Go early morning if you want to enjoy the maximum

We found it to be meh and more of a tourist trap... maybe compared to other castles we've seen in England and Vienna... there are better things to do in Bled - visit Bovec, Soča valley, bike around Bled.

It's €10 to get into the castle and it's just one big gift shop. Not worth it unless you want to spend big on a tiny museum (not worth it) and tacky souvenirs. You pretty much pay €10 for the view. Would recommend doing a hike to one of the lookouts for free instead, at least then you can get... More

The only real reason to visit here is for the views from the top of Lake Bled and the island church. The castle itself has very little of any interest unless you are deeply interested in local history (the museum is quite good). The views of the castle from the lake side are also magnificent with the castle perched on... More
