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.

Slovenia in One Day: Small-Group Day Trip to Lake Bled, Postojna Cave and Predjama Castle from Ljubljana
This was a great tour! Not too much driving, and a decent amount of time at each location. The caves are spectacular, and Lake Bled is stunning. I wish we could have had more time there for a swim or a meal. Our guide Nina was also a pleasure to be with! The price is a little steep considering that all that's included is the guide and transportation, no entrance fees, but it was a convenient way to see lots in one day.

Skip the Line: Bled Castle Admission Ticket
Quick and easy! It was nice to walk up to the booth and have my admission all ready for us. It was raining, so it made it even better not to have to wait outside.

Bled Lake with Postojna Cave & Castle - small group - day trip from Ljubljana
Excellent guide, but entry tickets were both in inclusion and exclusion list which made each individual to pay 35euro more in b/n trip , which was bit of a shocker

Slovenia in One Day: Small-Group Day Trip to Lake Bled, Postojna Cave and Predjama Castle from Ljubljana
Sanda was very friendly and welcoming. Lake Bled and Postojna Cave were truly breathtaking and experiences that I will always cherish and remember. Be sure to take a boat ride to the island and try Bled Cream Cake. Both are a must!

Bled Lake with Postojna Cave & Castle - small group - day trip from Ljubljana
What a magnificent tour! Lake Bled is breath-takingly beautiful; the castle embedded in the cliff was fun; and the tunnels were nothing like I have seen before. The guide was friendly. One of the best experiences I have had in Europe!

Slovenia in One Day: Small-Group Day Trip to Lake Bled, Postojna Cave and Predjama Castle from Ljubljana
Sanda was excellent, caring and informative not missing a beat. Got to know her and a little of her family life as well. Lake Bled: astonishingly gorgeous, a place not to be missed when coming to Ljubljana, the latter a lively, moving, grooving place when sun dips it’s head. As for the Caves, a bit tiring after a long day in sun. Slovenian Alps, nature at its best, mountains that leave a deep impression. Love Slovenia!

Slovenia in One Day: Small-Group Day Trip to Lake Bled, Postojna Cave and Predjama Castle from Ljubljana
This was a fantastic trip well worth the money. Lidija, our driver for the day, was very friendly and told us lots of interesting stories and facts about Slovenia throughout the day. The caves are truly amazing and must see if you visit Slovenia and the view from Bled castle looking out over the lake is spectacular.February is a great time to visit Slovenia - beautiful sunny days without the summer crowds. I would highly recommend this tour. It was a great day out
