Worth taking the trip for great views at this historic site. You can get there by taking local bus 28 or 29 from Most SNP in about 20 mins. You will have to buy 60 mins ticket, costs .9 euro, and buy your return ticket in advance because not all stops have ticket machines.

Caught bus 28 from the bus depot near the old town. Only 4 euro (2 for seniors) entrance fee. It's about a 400 metre walk uphill to an interesting castle with spectacular views of the surrounding countryside and across the river to Austria. It was disappointing that we didn't receive any information about the history of the castle.

My husband and I live in Bratislava now with our 4 year old son and we found this a very worthwhile trip! It is a 20-minute drive from our home (near the castle). The area surrounding the base of the "castle" (which is really a ruin of a castle) with its trails and the Danube winding around it makes for... More

It's a nice relaxing trip if you go by boat and quicker on the way back. The walk up to the castle as quite taxing and reasonably steep, kids won't notice, but if you're not so fit any more, it will be all you can do to walk up and down again in time to catch the boat back. The... More

We booked the boat tour for four of us, costing 10 euro each, there is a car park with reasonable charges close to the booking office, so easy to arrive by car to then have a short walk to the boat platform. The trip there takes around 1 hr 30 mins, not a great deal to see along the way,... More

Took a Tandem bike tour here with my wife today and we just loved it. Great place with very motivated staff explaining history of castle in context of Danube.

We went to Devin on the local bus from the city centre(29) which takes about 20 minutes. There is a small entrance fee and then you can just wander about and look at the different parts of the castle which has stunning views across the Danube. There are places to eat and drink at the entrance to the castle and... More

If you're in Bratislava, this is a must-see. It's a cool castle ruin with lots of information in English. The grounds are beautiful, the scenery even prettier, and the ruins themselves quite interesting. And as far as castles and monuments go, the price is incredibly cheap. Under the castle are some walking/biking trails along the rivers, and don't miss the... More

A quick bus from the main city and you're in another world. The castle is a half day excursion and has gorgeous views of the river and surrounding areas, well worth the climb uphill and the €1.50 entry fee. There's cute cafes underneath that serve reasonably priced beer and meals. Even wandering around the bottom By the river was romantic,... More
