Funicular railway to Ljubljana Castle

Add to MyVisit Add to MyVisit

The funicular to Ljubljana Castle, managed by the Festival Ljubljana company, holds 33 passengers and takes 1 minute to the top of the castle hill. The difference in height between its two platforms is a little less than 70 meters.

A funicular ride is included in the combined walking and funicular tour of Ljubljana organized by Ljubljana Tourism.

From 26. 2. 2024, until approximately 17. 3. 2024, a regular overhaul of the funicular will take place, so the funicular will not operate during this period. During this time an alternative bus transport will be organized. The entry point will be at the Lutkovno gledališče bus stop at Krekov trg 2. Departures will be every 30 minutes and every 15 minutes on weekends. The price of one-way transport is €2.30 per person.

You will be able to buy or pick up your tickets with vouchers at the temporary kiosk next to the lower station of the funicular and the Ljubljana Castle entrance pavilion.
