We had lunch on a local restaurant. Just delicious. We got to the castle on sunset. Destroyed by napoleon Bonaparte. But it is just incredible! Very beautiful... very romantic! Overlooking the Danube!

I guess I've gotten spoiled touring refurbished and renovated castles. Devin castle is not one of them and is very much in ruins. The site isn't super informative or give you an idea of what once stood there. But, you get what you pay for. Entrance fee is nominal and there are lovely views of the Danube.

This is the ruined one but offers views of Austria. Alas on the day we visited it was foggy and you could barely see the hand in front of your face! 1.5 euro to visit the grounds , it's a nice walk around and would have offered stunning views. The upper castle had been closed since 2008 and in the... More

We visited Bratislava and decided to visit Devin Castle. On a nice sunny day the walk around the castle is a great stroll into the history of the region. The place holds some sculptures from local artists too. The views are stunning. The day when we went there was this tent with people demonstrating replicas of old clothing and stories... More

The castle is nice to see but the surrounding and the view of the city is the best thing. Recommended to see.

Devin Castle, about 10 km outside of Bratislava is a place that has the ability to transport you back to days of old. The ruins are in great shape and stirs your imagination in ways that are hard to come by when you contrast them to say, a 'restored castle'. High on the hilltop and at the confluence of two... More

Just within 20 minutes by bus (either 28 or 29) you can get to this lovely part of the suburbs. From the Castle you can enjoy an amazing view over the Danube and the adjoining river. The area is well preserved. Be ready for a bit of climb :)

The castle although stunning is best viewed from the city or bridge. The views from the castle walls and gardens are simply amazing.
