I spent an hour waiting for bus service 29. And i spent less than an hour at Devin castle. I think it alright, there is not much to admire and it is pretty small. It is pretty windy while I was there so wear more appropriate if you plan to visit.

Devin hrad (castle) is one of Bratislava's best attractions about 5 miles outside the city on the banks of the Danube and easy to get too. (bus 29 from under the Most SNP bridge;90 cents) The castle is a well preserved ruin with information plaques throughout and great views of the Danube and Austria across from the river. The staff...

The road up there is a bit steep - but no problem at all. A fantastic view up there and lots of history

Nice boat trip from Bratislava. Takes 1hr 30mins to get there but only 30mins to get back! Some nice views from the castle (which is totally in ruin) and makes a change from the bustle of the city. Worth a visit.

Charming ruins - I favour such type of castles over the ones that are tidy and neat and 'undamaged'. Sightseeing does not take long (c.20 min coz u gotta climb a bit to get there) and the upper part of the castle is closed for renovation (closed for good few years already). The entry for a small fee and they... More

We loved the journey on the boat & the views from the top of the castle. There's a nice bar next to the river as well

Have been there, and luckily with some clouds. Can make it in 1,5 hrs easily. We took a family pass for €6 that seemed reasonable.

According to a lady who worked and lives in that area the Queen Elizabeth came here on a visit in 2009. it also an area right next the Austrian border: just the river Danube separates Slovakia and austria. in 1968 some 400 people were shot while trying to climb over a wire fence and swim across the river to freedom.
