perfect place to have a break from the city life. still in the city, reachable with the public transport, this absolut magic location gives you something more than an amazing view to observe the danube and morava rivers and its nature.

Just a few miles out of Bratislava - accessible by bus. Beautiful views from ruins of the old castle. Worth a visit. Charged to enter but not much. Hotel in car park below and big car park with bus stops.

To get to Devin Castle - go to the bus station under the UFO bridge and get on bus 29. You can purchase tickets at the machine - do not buy the "international tickets" as someone told me this is where he bought his ticket. I bought a 24 hours ticket for 3.50 euro. The bus ride is approx 20... More

Ruins accessible by bus from the city. Nice views of two rivers (Danube and Moravia) - natural border of Slovakia and Czechia. Walkpaths along the river with possibility to have a picnics. Worth to taste ribes/currant wine from local production. Also nice cca 1 hour track to Sandberg - paleontology.

We were very pleased to discover how well this ancient site is preserved and presented. Even on a cold December day it was worth the hike up to the lookouts. Soon you will have access all the way to the top. I would like to return in summer to see the wildflowers in the fenced area being protected from grazing... More

The Devin Castle is more a mark (between Austria and Slovakia) than a real attraction. Totally in ruins, nothing to visit.

Good place to visit. Entry only €1 (or something around this) Great view...You can take a bus from Bratislava (29) which goes directly to Castle (Hrad Devin) and it will take 15-20 min to get there.
