The castle provides a good view of the city but as a castle it isn't anything spectacular. We did the audio tour but I don't think you need to do this. The tower provides the best view.

€10 for the cable car up and down and to go up the tower. Well worth it!! You get a magnificent and uninterrupted view over the city.

when on tour you have to look at the local castle and take a glimpse into its past. Overlooks the whole city with loads of viewing points to take photos

I took the furnicular up to the castle which took just a few minutes. The castleitself is quite compact and to be honest the various exhibitions such as the puppetry, and Slovenian history were quite lame. The exhibitions didn't have enough content and material. The...More

There are too much modern things like: wires, glass, fences which kind of ruin the looks of the place. Plus, the place is over run by people. You can walk up or take the tram or drive up. If you take the tram, you only...More

The castle dominates the city skyline and looks very impressive from the old town. In truth it's not a huge place and doesn't have all that much of interest inside, but the views are spectacular, so a must-see tourist spot.

This castle has been used in turn as a residence of ancient nobilities, a prison, and now as a tourist attraction. You ride a funicular to get to the top. The view of the city of Ljubljana as it unravels when the funicular moves up...More
