The drivers can be quite rude and will not wait while you get your ticket. You may find you have an hour to wait for the... More

I was there last summer on a hot summer day! The surrounding is really beautiful with walking possibilities around the castle by Danube as well as around the castle itself! The scenery is absolutely amazing! I went into the castle grounds and learned a lot, enjoyed the history up close, saw traditional handcraft as well as took many beautiful photos.... More

The castle is accessible for 1.5EUR at the gate, just the inside of the main castle is still closed and should be opened from 1st of April. It's anyway big area to explore, great views of the rivers, walks between the ruins and enough of information on the information desks. Easy to spend 1-2 hours there. Also walk around the... More

We didn't visit the castle, but our taxi drove us there for the view of the city, including of the Danube and of the bridge.

I visited Devin Castle on a Sunday, which meant the 29 bus that goes directly from the city to the castle was not in operation. I took the 28 bus, which also stops underneath the overpass of Most SNP near the Park Inn Danube hotel. The 28 does not stop right at the Devin castle grounds, so I got off... More

I wasn't in my best mood when we come up here. It was 6 o'clock in the morning when we just continue hiking up from a sleeping Bratislava downtown. We went to the surrounding area as the castle are still closed and somehow seeing the Danube river as calm as the morning revive my state. The view on top are... More

How much time do you have? We are Euro-travelers to the core, in the middle of a two-month jaunt through central Europe. We had a couple days in Bratislava and decided to take advantage of the gorgeous weather to see the castle ruins. We caught the 29 bus under the overpass directly below Bratislava Castle, opposite the UFO part of... More

It was our last day in Bratislava and before we go home we decided to visit the Devin Castle. It was 8.30 am and they didn't let us in because it is too early. No open bar were found around where we can have a cup of coffee, so we left and didn't have a chance to visit it.

Having spent more than one hour walking in amazing ruins of the Devin castle, I have to write down that it is a very good choice when you have chosen Bratislava as your trip destination. This, more than 1000 years old heritage of the Slovak history, offers very nice walk and amazing views of the Danube river and surrounding nature.... More
