Bled Castle (Blejski Grad) Tours

Bled Castle (Blejski Grad)
Built into a rocky precipice in the Julian Alps foothills of northwest Slovenia, Bled Castle (Blejski Grad) sits high above the stunning blue-green Lake Bled. With moats, a drawbridge, ramparts, towers, and terraces with magnificent views of the lake, this 9th-century fortress is everything you would imagine a medieval fairy-tale castle to be. 

The Basics
There is much to see and do at Bled Castle. Tour the castle grounds, learn about Bled’s history in the castle museum and view its extensive collection of medieval armor and weapons, browse the wine cellar and enjoy a tasting, and enjoy incredible panoramas of Lake Bled from the castle terrace. 

Entrance to Bled Castle requires an admission ticket, which you can book in advance online or purchase at the gate. You’re welcome to explore Slovenia’s oldest castle on your own or book a guided tour of the castle grounds and museum. To see even more of Lake Bled, combine a Bled Castle tour with a Bled Island trip or Vintgar Gorge tour. Most tours of the region from Bled, Ljubljana, Piran, Zagreb and Pula (Croatia), and Trieste (Italy) visit the castle; some tours also stop at Postojna Cave and other area highlights. 

Things to Know Before You Go
  • Bled Castle is essential for castle and medieval architecture enthusiasts, and first-time visitors to the region.
  • Book tickets or tours in advance to save time at the gate.
  • Reserve a table at the Bled Castle Restaurant and get free admission to the castle.
  • Check the castle events schedule and perhaps catch a musical performance or medieval duel reenactment. 
  • Bled Castle is not easily accessible for wheelchair users or strollers. 

How to Get There
Bled Castle is easily reached by car from the town of Bled, and there is parking right outside the castle gate. Many guided tours include transportation by bus or private car. You can also take a taxi from town to the castle or hike one of the scenic pathways that head up from the lake. 

When to Get There
Bled Castle is open year-round with extended hours during the summer months. To avoid crowds, visit first thing in the morning or an hour or two before closing time. Bled Castle also hosts special events such as medieval festivals, farmers markets, and music performances.

Dining in the Castle Restaurant
Book a table at the Bled Castle Restaurant and enjoy traditional Slovenian flavors and superb views of Lake Bled from the terrace. With a restaurant reservation, you’ll enjoy free admission to the castle, which you can explore before or after your meal. Dining at the castle restaurant is popular, so book well in advance.
