Bled Castle (Blejski Grad), Bled

Built into a steep cliff above the lake, Bled Castle (Blejski Grad) offers magnificent views of the small island on the lake, two nearby towns, and the surrounding mountains. German Emperor Henry II donated the castle buildings, arranged around two courtyards, to the bishop of Brixen in 1011. The castle features interesting historical exhibits and a small chapel.

  • It is a well maintained and beautiful castle. Access is a little pricey but worth it. You can with the car or from the Lake on foot a real climb up car. Once at the top you can enjoy the small beautiful castle and you can enjoy an amazing view! Definitely worth it!

  • Nice Castle and crazy sight. Price however unjustified since there are no guide or audio guide tools. You can download an audio guide on the phone but for 11 euros per person I expected more services

  • Castle on the cliff with amazing views" You can make your way to the top of this castle by vehicle or walk up the stairs from the lake. It doesn't take long but for those that have minimal fitness might find it challenging. The castle itself is stunning. You'll find the most beautiful scenery from the top and lots to look at and see. The locals are delightful and the interpretation signs answer all your questions. Well worth visiting
  • Nice view. Parking 3 Euro. Entry 11 Euro. Nothing really historic. This summer the church on the island is being renovated which really minders the view. Very touristic place. I recommend not to here on the weekends. The best is from the hill across the lake by the camp ground. The Lake is wonderful for swimming.
  • Amazing castle with a great view on the lake, I'm a student so the entrance fee was €7, for adults it's €11 and kids up to 14 years old need to pay €5. Also reachable by bus and car. There is a €1 bus from bled to the castle and other attractions. There is also a nice climb by foot. I would also pass by the church nearby the lake, it's really pretty.
  • Spectacular views but very commercialized and not at all like the other castles we’ve visited in Slovenia. More like a basic museum than a historic castle. The walking path from the lake up to the castle is very well maintained but steep for many of the people trying to walk it today. If you cannot climb steep stairs for 15-20 minutes you should take advantage of the parking at the top by the castle.
  • Beautiful view from the castle. 11€ for adult. 7€ for student 5€ for children below 14. Amazing pictures can be taken from the castle. It also have a restaurant, a forge, a museum and a Chapel as well. In the cellar an actual monk sells wine to people.
