Together with a viewing tower ticket (3,5 euros), visitors get a free admission to an indoor exhibition.
The title of this lovely presentation is Behind the Nine Mountains; Slovenian narrative tradition.

The Castle Cafe is closed, but there is a take away coffee and snacks van at the castle court premises.
