I went there on Sunday. An event was held there and I saw a magic show and play about the history of this castle, maybe. I can't speak Slovak, but I could assume what happened at that time. There were some stuff who dressed the medieval cloth. You can try putting on those cloth and take pictures too. I think... More

A lovely place to visit, so much History in and around the Castle grounds. Take the 28/29 bus from Old Town bus station, buy the 60 minute ticket from the yellow ticket machines, cost of 90 cents. Take a bike and go for a long ride along the Danube.

We took the boat out of the city centre at 10am local time and arrived at the castle at 11.30am. The boat trip down was pleasant and relaxing. The return boat trip was at 1.30pm, which I don't think would have allowed enough time to wander round and enjoy the site. I think you need about 3 hours. I would... More

Plan about 1-2 hours to walk around the ruins, learn about the castle, talk to the friendly dressed-up "knights" and enjoy the views. We drove there in about 20 minutes and found it easily with our GPS and parking was no problem. So happy we did not miss this place!

It's worth every minute you spend from the approx 30 minutes route to the Devin castle from Bratislava. Its like you end up in heaven, in a part of the river which reminds of a tropical forest under an ancient castle. The castle will tell its stories, and the location on the cliff is a romantic place for couples.

This is a nice little trip from the Bratislava center if you are visiting Bratislava for couple of days and feel like you have seen it all in the center. It is within an easy reach by the public transport, you can then have a nice little walk along the river Danube or go up to see the ruins of... More

The views from the top of this castle are breathtaking. It is a bit of a walk to get up there; however, it is not a strenuous hike and is quite scenic. Along the way there are Middle Ages re-enactors who explain life during the time Devin was occupied. You can also see the foundations of earlier settlements that they... More

Castle is high on a hill, a great walk along the river and around the town. A few small restaurants and a couple of souvenir shops. Bus takes 30 mins from town from Most bus station and costs 90c one way

We spent the prior night in Bratislava and were heading to Vienna on the day we visited the castle. So we left our luggage at our hotel and took the 28 bus from the Novy bridge (new bridge). At first we were aiming for the the 29 bus - but based on timing we took the 28 (with the 28... More

just a little outside of Bratislava, going to Devin is a great activity for all. It is quite cheap to go as well but you have to walk a little to reach the castle. There are activities available for free (archery was fun) and you can touch real swords, axes and shields (I got to play fight with the man... More
