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.

  • Castle of Bled is one of the most beautiful place in the world. You can park near the castle with car, but rarely you can find parking place, because there are usually a lot of people. The other way to come by walk and park near the lake, it’s not so easy too, but fortunately we found a parking place. The castle is on the top of the hill. You can buy the ticket near the entrance. You can drink coffee or eat something inside the castle, if you want and of course you can buy some gifts in the shop. The view is amazing nice from the castle wall and from bastion. Definitely worth to visit :)
  • There is an exceptional view over the lake Bled from this castle. I highly recommend to go there if you visit the lake Bled. There is a road which you can go by car to the castle. But the parking lots are limited. We visited the castle in April and we were lucky to find a parking lot. I think during the summer, it will be very difficult to find places to park the cars. There is high slip to reach to the castle. The castle has an entrance fee. The entrance fee for adults is 12 Euros and for seniors and students are cheaper (I think 9 Euros). There is a honey 🍯 shop. I strongly recommend you to visit the shop. You can find honey with different tastes and flavors.
