Didn't have the opportunity to actually visit the castle but gleaned a lot of history on it. We viewed it from most angles from the bottom and are amazed at the sheer size of it. It would recommend visiting it as we will regret not doing it. There's not going to be another chance.

Easy to visit from Bratislava, take a number 28 or 29 bus from under the new bridge by the Danube, takes about 20 minutes. Castle very atmospheric overlooking the Danube, particularly the small tower standing on a rock. Good interpretation of finds etc. by locals dressed in period

A beautiful place with a aqua park to explore, provided you have the time. Recommend the boat cruise from Bratislava for an idyllic, green journey.

Worth the bus ride from Bratislava and very striking ruin. Unfortunately the topmost part of the castle is closed due to damage to the steps. Even so there is an excellent view of the Danube from the top and an interesting little museum. You can walk to the confluence of the Danube and the Morava rivers and view the memorial... More

This is our favorite place in Bratislava, we have visited this place 6 years ago. We were a little bit disappointed, that upper part of the castle is not accessible and the entrance fee is higher than before. Anyway, we like this place and the view from the top is amazing.

Make half a day of it and catch a boat down the Danube and back to visit the castle. Better still - make a whole day and go to Schloss Hoff, which is just fabulous. Devin castle itself is ok

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.
