The castle has some of the best and classic views of the Danube you'll find in Slovakia. It takes a climb up but is worth it. Afterwards walk down to the river and follow the path round below the castle and along the river until you reach the next village where you can catch the 28 or 29 bus again... More

This being my third trip To Bratislava I wanted to get out of the city and see some countryside. There is a boat that brings you here but unfortunately it was booked up so we took an user to Devin Castle which was very inexpensive and quick. On arrival we were delighted to find stalls selling very local wine including... More

This place is accessible by boat from Bratislava, down the Danube - approx. 1 hour and at a cost of 10 Euro - great value and well- worth the small investment. Organised trips are available from the boat operators at the terminal. The castle itself is largely derelict although, on the day we visited, we were very lucky in that... More

Castle itself maybe is not the best one. But there's an amazing view over there. Great nature of Slovakia is getting together with the beauty of addition of a river to the Danube river. Highly recommended.

If you're a fan o Castles as I am you should definetly visit Devin Hrad while visiting Bratislava. It is about 10 km from the city center and you can also go there by bus (#28 from under the UFO bridge). It takes about 30 minutes by bus and a 10 minute walk from the bus stop untill the Castle....

Devon Castle is an hour and a half by boat from Bratislava ferry wharves (ticket office opposite the Slovak National Museum, although boarding is wharf 1 about 5 minutes walk towards the bridge with the UFO viewing platform). The trip back by ferry takes about half the time which shows how fast the current in the Danube runs. The ferry... More

Easy to get to - the route is really straight forward (it is out of the town).Definitely worth the visit. Fantastically cheap - only 4€ entry. the views are brilliant, there is a good amount of walking, no need for any walking boots. The local restraint has good sized portions! - enjoy the grilled ribs!

Top part of the castle is closed for restoration. Nice views of the Danube. Nearby is a remnant of the iron curtain and... More

Great place with a fantastic view down at the Danube. Come here in the late afternoon or close to sunset. It is also an interesting historical site, but do not miss the view from the old castle

We spent half a day at Devin Castle. It is a pretty walk up to the castle that has a lot of history attached to it. The views over the Danube and over Slovakia are beautiful. There are also some lovely walks around the castle, with some local restaurants to be able to get some yummy traditional food. It was... More
