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.

  • Stunning, panoramic views of this castle built on a mountain edge. Interesting museum and restaurant await. Lots of stairs and steep incline, but the view is well worth it. 
  • Highly recommended to visit the Castle so you can enjoy the breathtaking view of Lake Bled, the central island and its surroundings. In regard to the castle itself, it is nice but not impressive, highlighting the beautiful terrace to relax drink and enjoying the scenery.

  • Great views of the lake and the city as well as the surrounding hills and mountains. An interesting museum gives an outline of the history of the area back to prehistoric times, as well as of the early tourism to Bled. The castle itself is very nicely kept/restored. the free wi-fi was also a plus!
  • Excellent views of the lake and city. It also had a small shop where you could taste local honey. A bit too crowded. The €10 ticket cost is worth it, given the views
  • I recomend visiting it by foot because it's a much better experience than just driving up there. the view is breathtaking and sitting down in a café to enjoy it is a good payof for the walk up.
  • Amazing views, so picturesque! Also the museum tells a lot of its history and the blacksmith apprentice in the shop is hilarious. There was a medieval fair when we were there, so we got to practice our ax throwing.
  • No doubt, the view is beautiful from Bled Castle. I do think admission is pretty expensive at 10 euros and it's not necessarily worth it. Watch out for snakes if you're going up the many steps to Bled Castle - you don't want to accidentally step on one!
