Important notice

Dear visitors and partners

We would like to inform you that due to the complex construction of the new roundabout at Betin (just before entering Bled), a modified traffic regime will be in place between the months of March and May 2024. Partial road closures are scheduled for 4-24 March 2024 and 2-21 April 2024.

From  24 March to 1 April 2024, two-way traffic will run on the right-hand lane of the existing road in the direction of Bled and on the newly built section of the road in the direction of Lesce.

From 21 April onwards, traffic will be diverted to the newly constructed part of the roundabout (over the bridge) and will be two-way. 

For more information, please read HERE.

The above traffic arrangement will also apply to access to Bled Castle and Bled Congress Centre.

We appreciate your understanding and kindly ask you to follow the road signage.

On foot

Along the Arnold Rikli path

The main path to the castle starts just above the Grajsko kopališče public lido. A 10-minute moderate walk through the forest overgrowing the castle hill and further up the laid-out path delicately lit during the night will reward you with spectacular views of the lake, Bled and its surroundings.

From the Slovenski trg square

The Slovenski trg square in front of St. Martin's Church can be reached from the lakeside promenade and past the Spa Park, or from the main bus station through the Grad hamlet. The path runs up the hill at the foot of the castle rock, joining the Rikli path after a few minutes' walk. 

Across the Višce hill

If you are coming from Rečica, the path to Bled Castle will take you over the Višce hill. The 20-minute walk begins at the sign Rečica - Višce. When the main road towards the Mala Zaka Rowing Centre, the railway station and Velika Zaka turns sharply right, the path for the castle forks off left (Za gradom). The path is well marked. Just before ascending to the castle, there is a viewing platform that offers fantastic views of the lake and the area.

By bike

The Bled area is ideal for cycling as it rewards recreation with breath-taking views of the picturesque landscape. You can combine your cycling tour with a visit to the castle. In the centre of the town, follow the main road towards Pokljuka until you come to the sports park.There turn left and continue up a rather steep road to the car park near the castle entrance, where you can leave your bike at the bike rack next to the castle wall and explore the castle on foot.

In a horse-drawn carriage

A ride in a horse-drawn carriage is a memorable experience, especially if it takes you to Bled Castle. The ride can be arranged at the meeting point of the Bled Fiaker Coachmen at the lakeside promenade in the centre of the town.
