The castle offers a great wiev of Celje and its surroundings. The "tortyre chamber" is quite small but very gruesome and interesting. The castle was undergoing renovation when we were visiting. It will probably be a graet improvement to an already good attraction.

The walls, parts of the castle and the courtyard are in a good shape. You can enjoy the wonderful view of the surroundings. In terms of history the princely family moved very early to the city because they were so numerous.

This is one castle you don’t want to miss out. It’s gorgeous and great stories to back it up. Come in summer on Sunday because they have events.
