This is a very accessible castle right in the center of this charming town. The interiors are quite interesting but the views over the city are what make it spectacular. The castle and grounds have been excellently restored.

We've been in Trencin only to see the castle, from distance it was AMAZING. On the hill, it was visible from far, far away! You have to climb a little to see th castle. There was something disturbing for me about this castle - there were birds on chains. Huge birds witout possibility to fly, on chains. But the castle... More

The castle has a couple of haves and have nots. It is an impressive building and there are great views at the city below. But should you expect an exhibition, there is really not much to see inside, as the castle has burned out in 1790 and has not been inhabited since.

This is a great castle to explore inside and out, and was easy to just purchase tickets when we arrived with no real planning. The tour was in Slovak, but we had an English booklet which helped, though it is hard to keep up with reading and trying to see everything at the same time. It still enhanced our visit... More

The castle is a very historical place. Really is mandatory to take a tour there! The atmosphere is incredible. The facility is big with several walls. The main tower give you a very impressive view on the top floor

We were at the Castle entrance for the 0900 opening time. We opted not to pay for a full tour,but to pay instead for the Castle tower and grounds without guide ticket. Even before we climbed to the top of the tower,there were great views of the area from the upper courtyard. Within the courtyard was a small theatre area,a... More

Really enjoyed the castle, the view, the small shop and everything else, until we noticed the birds of prey that were held captive. There were probably around 10 different kinds of birds, among them at least one eagle. This was horrible to see, and I really hope that they will change this.

Trencin and the castle are a great day trip from Bratislava. Trencin castle is a bit of a hike to get to the top but you can take your time we did it with our 5 and 3 year old grand children. All along the way are great photo ops. Trencin is a clean and quaint little town. Things are... More

Trencin is a lovely little town just an hour and a half away from Bratislava. The castle is the third biggest in Slovakia, its beautiful with a very interesting history. Although the tour is primarily done in Slovak there is alot of written information in English and it is definitely a worthwhile visit.

The Castle is a must thing to visit in historic City of Trencin. Located majestically on high rock, is an eye opener, how do they build it ? The castle Tower offers lovely views of the whole city and surroundings. The water well is impressive, and it is called "Well of love", as the story said. Highly recommending.
