This was a great half-day trip. Devin is a ruined castle on top of a steep hill. Full marks to whoever decided on the placing of seats on the way up the hill. All were placed so that you could enjoy the view whilst getting your breath back for the next bit of the climb. The little museum focuses on... More

We got the Danube cruise out to Devin castle, it was lovely. There was a medieval display on with sword fights, tents, weapons displays and lots of activities for kids. Some really nice volunteers explained everything to us and showed us the different pieces of equipment and weapons used. The views from the castle were really beautiful.

There are a few options for getting to Devin castle but we chose a boat up the Danube which gave us some truly impressive views of the castle as we neared. The castle is pretty spectacular looking with bits of it seemingly stretching out from the cliff and about to fall off. Very picturesque. The day we visited there was... More

Went by boat from Bratislava which is a nice way to spend a few hours. Castle ruins are interesting but the highlight is the views from the top of the Danube and over Devin village. To top it off it is a pleasant walk from the boat dock plus you can enjoy drinks from the bars and cafes outside the... More

Lovely setting above the swift flowing river. Great to walk about the ruins and then down by the river...do see the Iron Curtain monument at the fork of the rivers. Take a hat /umbrella as there's limited shade.

If you wish to see the confluence of Danube and Morava from a castle ruin, visit Devin. The restaurants right below the castle ruins serve good food and beer.

About 10km up river from Bratislava .Buy your tickets at the Propellor terminal near SNP bridge To be honest not a great deal of the castle remains but what does is impressive perched over the Danube . This site has been occupied since the stone age and the museum showcases some very interesting artefacts . Inside the castle grounds various... More
