This castle is nice place for Sunday afternoon trips with your family. Under the castle are few stands with local drinks and food, you before you head up, you can full your stomach. To step up is bit hard but the view is worth it.

A very nice walk uphill past some interesting sculptures and a breathtaking view. The ruins are nice, and the site deserves funding to restore the uppermost part - go there and support!!

For those who are staying 2 days or more in Bratislava I highly recommend this castle. Beautiful landscape and a small museum about the life in Slovakian middle ages.

This is a great opportunity to see some real Slovak history, we saw offers of an organised tour here for 55 Euros but managed to go ourselves for less than 6 euros each. The castle can be reached by taking the 29 bus from the bus station under the UFO bridge, its the last stop on the route so you... More

There is nothing much to see here, but you will love it just for the view of the ruins up on the hill. Unfortunately, when I was there the upper castle was closed for visitation (they said restoration works had to be done, but this has been stopped since 2010 due to the lack of funds :l ). There are... More

The castle from afar looks very nice but the problem resides is that after to climb the very step hill, a large part of the castle is closed due to lack go funding. So,ig you go for the environments it is great but if you go for... More

Before we visit this castle I read some reviews about its redesgins. It's nice. Its views of Bratislava are cool but, I feel this place has lost its essence of originality.

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...
