It was nice to see the castle, and it has a nice view of Bratislava from top. You may take a bus from the old city.

Really cool ruins, definitely has a better view than the castle in town in my opinion. Worth visiting, however when I went there it was windy and got kinda chilly

the castle is ruins but it has nice view to Danube and Morava. you have to walk up the hill. have a bottle of water (even empty they have free water in the castle), walk by the river. If you had rented a bike it is 11km from Bratislava (11 km).

This is a must go if you are visiting Bratislava, just on 20 min bus ride from city center it is a magical place. You can spend a whole day walking in the ruins and the surrounding villages. Amazing thing is most of the people in the village speak English (besides the guy on ticket window). Simply Awesome....

It was a beautiful day when we paid a short visit to Devin Castle - located an easy half-hour bus ride from Bratislava. Easily one of the cheapest and worth-while side trips on my tour of Europe - assuming you take the bus there. There are options for boats rides but the bus was cheaper, shorter and very easy to...

The castle is located in a beautiful place, the surrounding and the views are amazing as well. The castle is historical with the monuments providing tribute to the greats. Our visit was in winter but still worth it.

Not to miss at all! It is simply beautiful and worth seeing! The view, the place, the small restaurants around... simply amazing. It was very cold in February but the experience out of this world.

We went there on foot. Not too far from city center. We had great views from above. This castle was destroyed because of fire. Now was rebuilt, but you only saw few things left, the remainings was new. The castle was changed into museum. I didnt enter the castle since I didnt have much time and many locals said that...
