Ptuj Castle, Ptuj

4.5
#1 of 8 in Museums in Styria Region
Rising on a hill along the riverbank and overlooking the town, Ptuj Castle houses a museum that exhibits art, furniture, costumes, tapestries, and everyday objects from the 16th to the 19th centuries. In the western forecourt, notice the tower--the only remaining part of the first fortification most likely built in the 9th century. Archbishop Konrad of Salzburg commissioned the construction of a new castle in the 12th century, but the structure gained its final appearance in the Renaissance and Baroque periods. Explore the collection of musical instruments used by noblemen and wealthy citizens on the ground floor, and head to the second floor to see traditional masquerade costumes on display. For travelers who use our world travel planner, Ptuj holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Ptuj Castle and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • For those of us who visit Slovenia this and a stage that should be done. The Castle dominates the very quiet town of ptuj. The climb to get there is not binding, and inside you can visit a museum. Decent views of the adjacent hills.

  • Cute but nothing exceptional. But it's not about the dance panorama of the Castle but the hill that hosts it. €6 excessive input

  • Visiting the city of Ptuj Castle was a must-see d. With 14 euro family Pack we made our ride alone with a daughter suddenly gone crazy for the beauty of the furniture and paintings. Never have thought to fly nearly two hours for the visit. Worth it
