The booklet that you get is more interesting than the actual castle. This is basically a ruin. Some parts are roped off, and the printer's shop was closed when we were there. We climbed up the stairs in the tower, but all of the windows...More

It's a very well maintained castle, clean and very nice. It's easy to tell that is being looked after carefully. And the view from there is insane.

Renewed, with great view of city Celje on two places. Renewed entrance with souvenir shop and caffee. Still, there could be more atractions inside (sometimes there is a old printing Office oppened, or some concerts), but it should be on regular basis.

We stopped by here and climbed to the top of the castle. We had a fabuolus view of the old and new parts of the city, the river and all around. It was a nice way to spend the morning.
