It's worth it for the views and the scenery! ... and a bit of history.

Beautiful historic site just outside Bratislava. You can almost sense the history these ruins must have seen. Spectacular views across the surrounding countryside and the Danube and Morava rivers join right beneath the ruins. Inside the castle there were 2 tents where some members from the local fencing club showed us some medieval weapons and explained a bit about the... More

Walking into the courtyard of the castle gives a strong intimidating atmosphere which all castles should have. The conservation works which have been going on there have been completed to a very high standard and the interior decoration impressed me a lot. The WWI exhibition which was there on my visit was very informative, and for someone who didn't know... More

It's very interesting. When I was there it was empty so it was great for photos :) If you have time in Bratislava, you should check it out especially cos the bus takes you straight there.

Fantastic location on a bend of the river. Amazingly deep well that made a huge noise if you poured water into it. Sounds hardly riveting I know but it had everyone transfixed! Lots of nice walks around the castle area and a couple of outside cafes nearby.

We went to the castle by boat on the Danube. The castle has signs in English as well as Slovac. Staff very helpful and informative.

...but in the whole of Slovakia! This castle and ruins definitely take the cake. It is worth travelling to and is a short drive from Bratislava - but there is an excellent bus service that runs between the city center and Devin. Be sure to do the mini hike to the chapel before making your way to the main castle... More

You can visit lots of castles in Europe that have been restored, but if you want to see the remains of a real castle this is the place. Great location with friendly staff and terrific 360 degree view of the river and surrounding farm lands. Easy to see why the Knights chose this site. Museum has numerous items showing how... More

Had a wonderful time despite it being on top of a hill, so close to Austria, yet so far ..... Archery, health and safety should be all over it.
