Castle · Tourist Spot
Built into a steep cliff above the lake, Bled Castle 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. These days, discover the museum collection presenting the history of Bled, its culture and people. Learn about traditional hand-printing techniques at the Bled Castle Printing Works and print your own memorial document. 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. A visit to Bled Castle represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Bled road trip planner to plot your vacation.

  • The most stunning views and tranquil castle. Tour via QR code was a great touch and gave little 1-3 minute overviews of each area. Wine cellar and forge were our favourite parts! Great guys working who gave a really insightful overview of their areas. Loved it!
  • The views up here are fantastic. The climb up isn’t too bad either. We managed it in the rain, however, at the top, be warned the cobblestones are extremely slippery when wet! I can’t remember exactly how much it cost to enter the castle, however it was a bit steep for me as a student on a budget! Would definitely visit at least for the views, however I do regret not going inside.
