Free Old Town & Castle Tour


Join us as we explore the older parts of old town and the hilltop castle.
Its an ideal extension to our Classic Free Tour. A creative mix of history & legend.

Our second free tour takes a closer look at our charming old town, visiting older parts of town, where the story of Ljubljana began, and the hilltop castle. We begin at our usual meeting point in Preseren Square, but cut directly to Town Hall where we begin our southward journey along Old Town Road, all the way to Old Square (Stari Trg) and Gornji Trg where some of Ljubljana's finest medieval houses are located. From there we begin our 10 minute climb up to the castle where we visit the inner courtyard and several other points of interest. As may be expected of us, the tour is both informative and entertaining, rich in medieval history, quircky trivia, local tales & legends.
There is no option to take funicular up to the castle as we asend from the other side of the hill. The climb is easy on well maintained gravel road but may not be suitable for persons with walking difficulties who could optionally depart before we climb.
