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. Visit the wine cellar and ask the monks to tell you stories about the castle and Slovenia's wine regions. On a clear day, you can see all the way to the Julian Alps from the castle's terraces. A visit to Bled Castle (Blejski Grad) represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Bled road trip planner to plot your vacation.

  • They have more souvenirs shops than exhibitions, and the later are very poor. The views are amazing, but every hill or mountain will have them. Definitely not worth the time and money  more »

  • I was very disappointed by the castle. I think it was a bit cheeky to ask for admission into the castle, as there was very little to do or see. We went on a very wet misty afternoon, which meant we co...  more »

  • Perfect! Can't describe this place. It's so unique and just perfect. If you have spare time, definitely reserve a table at their restaurant inside the castle. First, you don't have to pay for parking and entrance, and that is mostly half the price you keep for yourself and use it for lunch or dinner. Food is great, desserts even better. If you can, book your table online, near the edge of the wall, view is stunning! The only problem they have in summer at this place are bee's, there is a lot of them, but they are managing to keep them away from guest's. Overall great experience and will definitely come back again to this castle and restaurant!
  • I always say that visiting any castle is akin to looking back in time but I have to say this is the first Castle I have been to where I did not feel that I got value for money. It looks good from far but its far from good! Perhaps it was because it was raining the whole day, or that there was a thick fog blocking the neighbouring views of the mountain, the island in the middle of the Lake Bled, or the lively establishments on the other side of Lake Bled. Yes, the Castle is lovely to behold from the outside, a tad small, but nonetheless beautiful. I'm sure that views are marvellous on clear days and perhaps it would be nice to eat there but besides that, there was not much.
  • Beautiful castle with the best views for photos in all of Lake bled. Was disappointed though that we had to pay for the museum just to go inside when all we wanted was a quick coffee and to look at the view. Ljubljana castle lets you into the grounds and take photos of the view of the city without paying and only charges if you want to go to the museum or exhibits. Although it looks old and historic, it has actually been substantially rebuilt with much of it is non original.
  • The castle looks better from the lake than from within. A couple of museum displays and a top ranked restaurant may be worth your visit as are the stunning views from the castle's walls
  • You may easy climb there. Beautiful views from. Interesting architectural additions. You may spend there couple of hours plus cafe or restaurant. Then walk around and down to other part of city.
