Short trip from centre of BA to very quiet and pleasant site. At time of our visit, students have been presenting old Moravian weapons and traditions. Overall very good value and views on sunny day are perfecto!

We took a boat trip to Devin castle from Bratislava and it is a nice little trip. You can easily nip up to the castle, get some pics and grab a glass of the fruity red wine that is on sale in the small square of eateries within the two hour slot that you have on island if you go... More

Nice views of the Danube and lots of places to walk around the vicinity. Bus is easy navigated from Bratislava Most SNP as the bus goes to the castle grounds.

A short bus ride from Bratislava will get you to Devin Castle situated up a hill overlooking the Danube River. You can actually see Austria across the river. Though I could only imagine what a grand castle it was, you now see the ruins but it is still worth the trip. It occupies a large vast of land where the... More

Even if it was rainy Day, a short bus trip took us to this beautiful place, full with history. It was just great, we were nicely surprised by the size of the castle: on the photos it looked as a small castle, but in reality it was more then big :)

The castle is in a spectacular location on a cliff above the Danube, with lovely views and nice breezes. You get the bus from the bus station near St Martin's church, they go every half hour. Where the bus drops you there are several cafés, restaurants and shops. There is a well made path up to the castle. The very... More

Very convenient to go by taking the bus or alternatively can go by boat only 6 Euro per way. Beautiful view from the top and the castle was built on the confluence of the two rivers Danube and Morava. You can witness the flow of the two rivers one is fast and the other more or less standstill. Relaxing and... More

I definitely sugges this place a half or whole day trip - you will see 1500 years of history. I am missing some more services there

Devin castle is a bus trip or boat excursion away from Bratislava. We chose to take the half-day return river trip which leaves at 10am and returns at 1.30pm (it takes just over half an hour to travel back to Bratislava but over twice as long to get to Devin, because of the current) as this also allowed us to...
