Private Ljubljana Old Town & Ljubljana Castle Tour

Add to MyVisit Add to MyVisit

In the company of a guide, you will take a walk through the historical city centre of Ljubljana, get to know the city's history, art, architecture, and way of life in the past and present through its major sights, and take a funicular ride to Ljubljana Castle.

The tour begins in front of the Town Hall, a building with a rich history now used as the seat of the City Municipality of Ljubljana. From the Town Hall and the Robba Fountain in front of it you will go on a walk around the historical city centre during which you will learn about the history of all the city's major sights. The walk will take you across the Cobblers' Bridge and past the National and University Library and the Križanke Summer Theatre to the Kongresni trg square, from where you will continue to the Prešernov trg square, dominated by the Franciscan Church and connected to the Triple Bridge, and further on to Plečnik's Market and the Cathedral.

Just a short walk from there is the bottom station of Ljubljana's funicular railway, which brings you to Ljubljana Castle, the city's most prominent sight. The castle's Outlook Tower offers the most beautiful views of the city, while its interior houses several museum displays and other exhibitions.

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 at the Ljubljana Castle entrance pavilion.
