Ptuj Castle (Ptujski Grad), Ptuj

4.4
Rising on a hill along the riverbank and overlooking the town, Ptuj Castle (Ptujski Grad) 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 (Ptujski Grad) and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • Far better than I predicted. Lovely exhibitions of costumes, musical instruments, paintings and armour. And you get to play with organ pipes.
  • 12 euros for a family ticket. Nice views and some interesting displays including a couple of impressive chandeliers and marquetry furniture. The music room with the interactive organ pipes was a hit with the kids.
