(4.8/5 based on 5,000+ reviews on the web)
Board a gondola and make a trip to the little island with a church in the middle of Lake Bled, or just walk through the pristine nature around the lake. Surrounded by mountains and forests and rich with birdlife, this glacial lake is 2.1 km (1.3 mi) long and up to 1.4 km (0.9 mi) wide. Rent a bike and cycle around the lake or play some golf. The lake is also very popular among rowers. Walk up to the medieval castle towering over the north shore for panoramic views of the lake and the surrounding landscape. Several hotels in the area feature swimming pools filled with water coming from thermal springs. Lake Bled is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our online itinerary creator, Bled Edition.

  • Lake Bled is worth a visit for a stroll or a boat trip to the central island. Romantic and charming. Manicured gardens.

  • it sounds like a long hike but it's not: circle the lake and conclude your walk with a hike up to the castle, you will be rewarded with pretty vistas. oh and take a boat trip to boat island, it simply...  more »
  • Lake Bled is beautiful. When visiting Slovenia, you have to stop here. We went from Bohinj the more visits. In the middle of the Lake is a small island with a church on it. You can go there sailing with a privebootje, than you have to. It takes a 15 euros per hour, 10 euros per additional hour. If you want to do, then certainly 2 h minimum. On the island you can moor your boat and visit the small church. There is a Bell that you can read, it would bring luck. You do have to pay to get there. There is also a shop with a few tables and chairs. Around the Lake there are restaurants, the there is very busy. If you want to enjoy a beautiful Lake, but is also a quieter environment, where you can rent a boat and water sports enthusiasts practicing you'd better go to Bohinj. Still, the Lake of Bled unique, inspiring and well worth a visit!

  • Add this place to your bucket list, America. The area is beautiful, the people are helpful, the food and hotels are very reasonable. Our son and his wife came here to be married; best decision ever! We were in driving distance from many national parks, castles, and caves. We will return.
  • Slovenia is so beautiful and if you just happen to come by, definitely go to Lake Bled. I've been here on two different trips and it is amazing. The lake is so beautiful and serene. On a warm day, you'll even see people swimming in it! Just enjoy how pretty it is.
  • An amazing place, you can do many activities in the lake, such as walk by the shore, swim, lay in the grass and take the sun, relax or go to one of the many cafes and enjoy a delicious coffee or maybe grab some snacks. The color of the water is amazing, a very beautiful blue, pristine water and during a sunny day is even more amazing
  • Nice place for visit. Plenty opportunity for active vacation.
  • Amazing town. The lake is really nice, and warm in summer. You're sure to have a great journey in bled
