As the most obvious "must-see" attraction in Bratislava, the castle does not disappoint. The walk from the old town makes it a slight trek up there, but it is not at all difficult to find (as should be expected, it is rather large and ostentatious). Entrance fee is cheap, as is to be expected from Bratislava. The view outside of... More

Bratislava castle is well worth a visit. There is a museum inside which tells the history of the first world war, Slovakia and the castle. We visited on the first sunday of the month whic to our pleasent surprise meant it was free (usual price is €6) The views of the city are superb.

When I visited the castleI expected a lot that it would have a similar type with the Prague castle. However, it contained almost nothing but the view to the city. Indeed the view is good, but it is not expected from such a castle. You should not spend too much time there. Even I would say this attraction can be... More

Nice views of Bratislava from up here, but unfortunately it is difficult to get the treasures of Old Town without some of the more modern elements or Soviet remnants in the picture.

Beautiful, high up with fantastic views. Worth the trip for the views. I've been old there is a lot of renovation so you can't go to all the floors in the castle so we didn't pay to go in. It's worth going up there to take pictures and look over Bratislava. You can see Austrian borders from there. Benches and... More

A really nice sight to walk around & soak up the beauty of the city. Try the castle brewery around the back of the castle & the craft beer pub opposite the cathedral

Its a one of the main tourist attractions so definitely worth a visit whilst in Bratislava. The views are fantastic and the ground are lovely to walk in and around...but the interior of the castle was nothing special, just okay. I would still recommend, i'm not disappointed just not balled over by it either.

A must when in Bratislava. It is no more than a 10 -15 minute walk from the town centre. It's open 8am to midnight and it's free to walk the grounds and enjoy the views. Facilities include two restaurants open 10am - 10pm, a souvenir shop open 9 - 6pm, toilets and parking. I visited at 1pm and 8pm today.... More
