Only if there is time

Its a great side trip, but only if staying for two nights. Not necessarily needs to be visited. Although it is nice.

A must see on the Bratislava circuit. I found the views much more impressive than the actual castle. The history was interesting for sure, but the vista was spectacular on a late summer afternoon! You gotta get up here. Bring lunch or just some wine and glasses.

I would read about the history of the castle when you first get there. There are lots of artefacts and succinct background of the area. There are lots of places to stop and relax. There was even a children's festival going on at the time that was great for families. There was magic shows, they were teaching about the history... More

Breathtaking views. Wine. History! Can't wait to go back and go up the castle...we just took a quick stop down by the river. Go see the Memorial.

I spent like 3 hours there playing cards with my friends. There`s a nice view of the city. It`s quite, calm, although there are some tourist there. The place I strongly recommend to take a rest is in the Leopold`s courtyard.

Cycled here from Bratislava and it was a really nice cycle ride along the Danube and countryside. It's a good place to stop and have a walk around to admire the views but there's isn't really much to the castle.

The castle ruins, located at a hilltop, are amazing. For me it was the best place I've visited in (proximity of) Bratislava. It's a great pity though, that the biggest part of the castle ruins is closed for tourists because of renovation works. You can get a boat ride on the Danube river from near the castle to reach the... More

Great to see the architecture for this region. Terrific views. Gives a good perspective of the town when you get up higher. I took some great pictures from the higher floors.
