    Pay ONLY 2,20€ for the elevator on the way up and just wander inside the citadel walls. Then just walk down one of the trails around the castle. Nice citadel though with nice cafés!

    2 reach it, several small paths lead up frm old town, v took the path via the Studentovska pot. Ahem, a certain fitness level is required..pant..pant, or take the funicular next to the Puppet Theatre.

    This castle has been a distinctive symbol of the city for as many as 900 years. At first, it was a fort, then a regional governor, later on, a prison.

    Go up with the funicular and go down by foot along one of the paths available. It's a bit expensive to go inside, but you can walk around a little and have a nice view even if you don't pay

    Great 360° view over the city. Small tour costs 3 eur for students which is great value for money since you get access to the tower, museum of slovenian history and virtual castle tour. Loved it! :)

    Best city view from top of the tower, must buy ticket and climb! Also you will learn a lot about the history of Slovenia in the museum. I can hardly stop my tears while reading about the World War II.

    Great views for free from the balcony and surrounding paths. Ana Ros and husband have a hand in Gostilna Na Gradu (#25 on the map), a restaurant in the castle courtyard.

    It's the best castle I visited so far. Get the app audio guide instead of the traditional one. It'll turn the whole castle into one big scavenger hunt. It's thoroughly awesome.

    I don't really like castles but this one impressed me. It's a perfectly renovated Castle that combines fancy modernity with ancient elements. Very elegant! Great view and nice restaurants.

    St. George's Chapel is one of the oldest parts of Ljubljana Castle. It is decorated with 15th century frescoes and 1747 wall paintings of the coats of arms of provincial governors.

    Great view of the city. Cute and of course touristy but worth a visit. Calligraphy bookmarks with your name/text are cool;)

    Get the funicular ticket cost 8€ & entitle for viewing tower & slovenian history. Great view of the city from the tower
  • No More H.
    Highest point in the city with the best views. Tickets to the viewing point are 13€ and the funicular up to the castle is 2€.

    Entrance fee of 7,50 euro for the tower is too much. Just spend 2,20 euro on the funicular for the way up, wander around and take one of the paths down to the center.

    Not too big, not too impressive, and is actually a mix of old and new architecture. Good location for picnic, bring some snacks and enjoy.

    You can take the funicular if you don't like trekking but you'll miss the fun :) the view is amazing at the top 😍

    The city's absolute must visit. Great view of the city. It's worth to walk up, just skip leg day at gym 😅.

    Slovenia, Slovakia, Penn's Sylvania, Three-toed sloths, and Paul Simon's song, "Slip-Sliding Away." There's something special for everyone with the letters, "S" & "L."

    Generally it's okay, but except of the viewing tower not that special. There are many ways closed and the nice parts of the castle are not accessible.

    There's a nice view of the city from the viewing tower but other than that, it was nothing special. Very difficult to navigate

    Yeah, it isn't that special. For the best views, you have to pay for the tower visit.

    Free wifi around the bar inside the castle. You can also visit many parts of the castle for free including some of the towers.

    Nice view of the city, viewing tower entrance fee at 6€ is a bit harsh.

    Underwhelming for the €7.50 price. It seems you can roam the premises w/o a ticket though. But you’ll need one to climb the tower.
