this is the best spot where you have to go if you are seeking great photos in trencin. morning time is less busy. it closes around sundown, make sure to dedicate 2 to 3h to go through the whole castle.

The Castle view from the road is impressive. So is the way climbing up the hill to the site gate. To enter inside the castle walls and visit the museum you have to buy the guided tour ticket. The tour is in Slovak language only.....??... !! From the top hill there is a nice panorama of the city.

Walked up here and paid the €2 entry to see the grounds. Nicely restored exterior gives you a sense of what it might have been like. Nice place for a picnic!

The castle is nice and impressive on the outside, there is not that much inside, but to get in, you will have to take the tour. I recommend Tour C (which includes A and B). I speak Czech and understand Slovak, so language was not a problem for me, my husband got a laminated text in English. His comment was... More

Wonderful castle and a must visit when you are near Trencin. Nice climb up the stairs up to the top for a great view over the city, river, stadion etc. Loved the museum with the armory, paintings etc. Low fair for entrance and parking space on the square close to the castle.

This beautiful castle is well worth a visit, especially then they are running one of their many events. The are many displays to see inside the castle also. The Trencin district is pretty much my second home so am slightly biased, but nonetheless the whole area is fantastic.

We visit Trencin castle every year. As it is up on the hill, you get some exercise until you climb up to the tower, but ut's worth the view. You can see whole Trencin from there. There is a new exposition of medieval torture equipment. I don' t recommend this to small children, as it is scary. The well of... More

Regarding the placement and all the place is a 5*. The walk on your way to the castle from the center of Trencin is really nice, either on the stairs or through the narrow streets. The castle looks, and is very imposing from the hill where is located. But, as others said before if you don't speak Slovak you will... More

Very nicely located, on a high hill above Trencin. It looks impressive from far away. It looks great from just below, when you are in the city centre. The way to the castle is very nice, though you must be prepared for quite tough 10-15 minutes hike. It will not impress you so much inside, but anyway - it's well... More
