  • The man at the reception is really friendly. He gave our daugter a paper crown. Inside there are two open towers holding a museum, bar and that's basically it. Gor for an hours or max two.

  • Spacious castle with little shade in the outdoor area, but a lot of rooms to visit at your own pace and read about the rich history. Well-equipped torture room. Attentive and professional employees. Be sure to visit the castle café with your 1€ discount! Free parking right at the castle; on a weekday only half full.
  • I observed this castle for 25 years as I drove through Celje and I always said to myself, one day. Today was that day and I can only say, this is one of the most beautiful and interesting castles in Slovenia. Very interesting to see for both children and adults.
  • Beautiful Castle with a beautiful view. Inside of the castle there is not that much to do, but still it is worth visiting. If it doesn't rain there will be a sword fighting performance every hour and other outside activities can also be found accross the castle grounds. Inside there is a classic paper printing place and within the two towers exhibitions can be found. The top of the tower gives a beautiful panoramic view of Celje and the surrounding nature
  • Very nice and not so crowded strangely. With a bit more marketing i am sure more tourists would come around and appreciate it. It is very well kept/ restored!
  • We parked below the castle. It was nice a quiet walk uphill. We did not visit the inside of the castle. The central Celje is also nice place to go to.
