We went there during our Bratislava stay and we were not disappointed at all, though the visitable places are limited during the autumn and winter season. However, for a fee of 1.50 EUR, we have seen very nice scenery of confluence of Danube and Morava rivers from the top of Devin catle ruines. Just one thing, if you go by... More

This is a very well kept castle only a 30 mins busride away from the Bratislava city centre. Lots of valuable information on the history in the area. Busdrivers speak no English and very little German so pay attention to signage and the screens on the bus. Many cafés and restaurants in the area.

I loved visiting Devin Castle. It reminded me of Tintagel Castle in Cornwall. It is essentially a windswept ruin with a beautiful view over the surrounding countryside, and in the case of Devin Castle the Danube river. There are information boards scattered around the site which have English translation. There is also a very nice pub/ restaraunt when you get... More

The castle is perched on the hill overlooking the city but it is worthwhile making the climb to the top - there are a couple of routes up either from the river side or the town and it involves quite a few steps on the town side but not too steep. The views were well worth the effort. The main... More

The museum closes at the end of October, so it wasn't open when we were there in November. The main part of the castle is also closed (the "upper castle") due to it being unsafe at present, and is not accessible at all. So the admission fee is reduced to 1.50 euro. But it was still worth the short bus... More

We planned to go to Devin Castle once we visit Bratislava. We caught a bus from Bratislava to Devin castle for Nova Most station. I remember the cost of bus ticket for 2 way was 1.8 euros or so. We reached Devin's Castle in 20 minutes. There is an entrance ticket to the castle. I think it is 4 euros.... More

The museum is closed from November to March but it is still possible to walk around the grounds of the castle for 1,50 euros during these months. The place is crazy beautiful! The sun sets in Austria and you can see it from the castle bank of the river in Slovakia. The interpretation panels inside the grounds of the castle... More

Devin's castle is worth a visit when you're in Bratislava. It's well situated on the bank of Danube (people back in the day really knew where to settle :)) offering views on Danube where cargo ships push upstream and on the hills east of the castle. The paths are paved, so no hiking equipment needed. You can have a nice... More
