If you have time to get out of the city center, this is an absolute must. The castle is very historic with lots of artefacts and a few exhibitions of the history of Slovakia. It's a nice walk to the top,not too tough but enough...More

Take bus #29 from the Most SNP bus stop (under the bridge) to Devin Castle - get off right after Devin town and it's an easy walk up to the castle. It's in a beautiful setting among rolling hills and the dramatic castle sits on...More

Must see when in Bratislava. You don’t have to do a tour. You can get to here via bus and it is very easy to do so. This castle is amazing and has gorgeous views.

The castle is a 25 min ride under most snp bridge. Worth the short bus trip as views over Danube are incredible. The castle itself stands prominent on the hill. We'll worth a visit and allow an hour for return travel and 2 hours there.

20 min bus ride from Bratislava. Excellent, relatively new paths, steps and toilets that are well maintained. There’s a very interesting small information centre showing the timeline of the Slovakian history complete with many photographs. Lovely grounds with fantastic views. Well worth a visit.

Worth visiting if you want to see a true, historical ancient castle with a Roman fortress. The boat ride on Daniel was very relaxing, but if you want to spend more time at the castle, catch bus 29 there from the old town in Bratislava.

I got the number 29 bus from underneath the big bridge (not the riverside of the road). You must buy a ticket 90 cents from the orange machine and validate it on the bus. Buy a second ticket for the return trip but only validate...More

Hi, I'm not sure if you can book in advance but it any case it's never that busy. The ticket booth was empty when we went mid morning and will only take you a minute or so to buy tickets. Enjoy!
