It is very nice to walk up on the hill and look around from the castle I really suggest to not miss it. But don't expect so much visiting the museum of castle - exhibition is very poor in comparison with other museums in Central-East Europe. "Treasury" is a joke. You'll find everything about castle at the city museum. It... More

Should go to this one. Not just your everyday Castle. Dropped by here during a Viking River Cruise and the views are wonderful.

We visited here during our Viking River Cruise. This gives you a great of Austria, Hungary, and Slovakia countryside. I can't speak to the inside but it is work the trip up to this castle for the view.

Not the most spectacular castle I've ever been to; we didn't go inside though because we'd been told it's not worth it. Good view though!

The grounds are really nice and you can get some great views over the city and across the river. It's not the most magnificent castle you are likely to see, but still it dominates the Bratislava skyline and really enjoyable visit.

Liked the location of this castle - doesn't really look like one though. Rive Danube flowing in the canal down the hill, green grass and a beautiful stairs back to city centre. More than the castle, I enjoyed the short hike up the hill and the way back

This is not really a castle but more of a museum. Castle looks much better from far. However, view from castle you get a panoramic view Bratislava Town and Danube. Place is worth a visit if you are in town but not worth a specific visit.
