This amazing old city ruin is beautiful during all seasons. After a 10-minute walk up the Samobor hill, it's a great place for catching your breath and seeing the city of Samobor from above. Take your dog with you!

Nice 30-minute walk up the trail to the castle. Upon our arrival at the ruins, we were amazed to see no one there. Very undisturbed ruins, which clearly have not seen any restoration attempts in recent years. A pleasant walk to and around the castle...More

You can see this castle from a distance, but there are no signs to get up close. Suggest Samodor sorts this out....

After finally finding the right place to park and following a painted sign on a fence we eventually found the path up to the castle. It was well worth it, even in the rain. We’re glad we didn’t give up!

We stayed in Samobor overnight on our way to Bled. We were looking for something to do before we started out in the morning and stumbled upon the castle. It was super cool! Not crowded or a hard hike, the castle is great for families....More

The walk to the castle from the village is lovely especially with the snow... Didnt manage to walk to the top because I had city shoes and it is a climb yo the top but it looks beautiful from down here too!

Just a few minutes away from the main square of Grad Samobor. I'm living near here so I always love to walk from the main square to the picturesque Vugrinščak creek park to this castle ruins. Going up is child-friendly and no hassle at all....More
