The castle is built on a rock at the source of the Brezno Spring and the Obrh. Below the castle is the spring dammed into a pound. In sources the Sneznik Castle was first mentioned in the year 1268 as the hunting post. The formation of the present castle goes to the year 1462. First owners were the Aquileian Patriarchs and later the owners changed several times. The primary appearance of the fortress were with two parallel towers who were connected with the corridor. They were surrounded with high walls and round it was digged the deep defence ditch.

Two arched stone bridges and the other towers are Romantic additions of the 19th century. The surroundings have been carefully arranged into a park with riding and walking paths.
