Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Definitely worth the walk up for the view across Bratislava and the Danube, as well as the castle gardens.

From the castle you get a stunning view over Bratislava. However, the castle itself isn't really anything to write home about.

The most visited and main touristic attraction of Bratislava 🇸🇰. The massive rectangular building with four corner towers stands on an isolated rocky hill of the Little Carpathians directly above the Danube river in the middle of Bratislava. Behind the entrance is an arcade corridor leading to a large Baroque staircase which, in turn, leads to the exhibitions of the Slovak National Museum on the second floor.

The only good thing is the view of the city. It needs a bit effort to get in the castle but the view reward your effort. If someone wants to get in the castle the entrance fee is 10€ but there is nothing special to see.

We visited castle area only from outside. Impressive building with nice views from hill top. Also very cosy backyard. Worth for short visit around.

I would say that don't waste your time! It is a walk on the hill and when you get there nothing to see at all. Just only the view.

Deserves only a quick short visit. Not comparable to Prague castle or Budapest castle. Still it is a must visit landmark while you are in Bratislava. The fortress fences has good views of the city. I enjoyed relaxing at the castle grounds and gardens

We stopped by Bratislava Castle during a guided tour. The castle has very nice grounds, including a beautiful garden that is a must visit. The castle courtyard was pretty plain, no plants, or tress of any kind, but worth checking out while you are there. Part of the interior of the castle is used as a museum, but other than that, the inside of the castle cannot be toured as it is actively used. This is a must stop while in Bratislava, and doesn’t take more than and hour or two, including the scenic walk to and from the city center.
