A small nice park with benches to rest in front of the castle.
Clean.
Worth a stop and to stay a bit. You could also buy a ticket to visit the inside of the castel.

Surprising Delight
Sep 2019
Just a short drive north of Bratislava through the lovely countryside lies the beautiful Cerveny Kamen castle. There has been a castle on the site since 1240, but the present Cerveny Kamen, meaning “red stone” in Slovak, is an imposing Renaissance fortress built to protect the huge cellar stores of wine and other wares owned by two noble families from 1537 onward. We just happened to arrive in time for an English language tour and were treated by an excellent guide who showed us the many rooms filled with 17th-19th century furnishings. The tour included viewing two different chapel areas decorated with elaborately frescoed ceilings, an armor room with a large collection of period weaponry, and the private living quarters of the former owners furnished with exquisite period pieces. There was even a replica of Michelangelo’s Madonna and Child sculpture, the famous work housed in Bruges, Belgium. Included in our tour was also a look at the cellars where the dukes who owned the castle stored the products of a massive trade network. Built into a hillside, the cellars are like a huge cavern with 20-30’ ceilings and a hand-dug well of 300 meters in depth. You can look down the well and still see the water running at the bottom. The tour takes about 75 minutes and is well worth it. If you have a Bratislava Card you get in free.

Very interesting castle & cellars
Aug 2019
The castle in Small Carpathians quite close to Bratislava, easy access. Well preserved, nice expositions, huge cellars under the castle. Friendly and competent guide & staff. Nice vicinity to spend longer time - green forest, bird garden, local winery. Worth of visiting.

Huge castle, nice guide!
Nov 2019
I'd have given this a higher grade if there had been an English guide. We had to join the Slovakian tour but they gave us a brilliant three-page document about all the rooms we were going to see so that did the job quite well. We did the short tour as the cellars were being used - an hour tour but wrap up as it is pretty chilly! There is a nice cafe on site - cash only - and the usual souvenir shop! Impressive building with interesting pictures, portraits, furniture and a weird and wonderful "grotto" type room. Go and see as much as you can - well worth it and the grounds are pretty too..

Good day out
Oct 2019
Less than an hour from Bratislava by car, with nice gardens and good views, interesting castle tour which wasn't too expensive. There's a cafe and kiosks on site, though we didn't actually go in. Ample parking, which was free. A good day out.

The thing to be aware of is you can't wander round the castle on your own but have to join a tour, so check the times online. And they only seem to be in Slovak, though provide an English script with all the details. Good idea I think to start providing tours in English, given the number of foreign tourists, and so attract more visitors.

Medieval Castle hidden in the forest
Aug 2019
The Red Castle is about 45 minutes by car from Bratislava, tucked away in the woods. As you drive up the hill and the forest clears, you find a well-preserved medieval castle. Guided tours give a good overview of the furnishings, art and weaponry on display. In addition, there is an amazing falconry demonstration a short distance outside the castle walls with a chance to see eagles, hawks and other raptors up close and in action. Overall, a fascinating journey back in time.

A great place to visit with or without kids
Jun 2019 • Couples
The "Red Castle" is located within an hour's drive from Bratislava and gives the visitor a chance to see a furnished castle. There are two tours in English on Saturday (otherwise they are exclusively in Slovak). The young man who conducted our tour was both knowledgable and spoke very good English. Don't miss the tour of the cellars. Kids will get a kick knowing that they have been used as the backdrop for several horror films (though this is NOT a torture chamber or prison or anything frightening like that). Also, across from the parking lot is a venue which does several shows a day (extra price to enter) showing off some beautiful raptors. Children especially might enjoy this show and the chance to see eagles, hawks, owls, etc. up close.

An Impressive Hidden Castle
Jun 2019 • Friends
This place isn't very far from Bratislava (about 45 minutes by car) or Trnava. It is hidden in the forest, but local people know it, so there were lots of visitors. You can park directly in front of the castle. We visited it only outside but we saw nice gardens, and different kinds of crafts, archery or knightly tournaments etc. It was sunny weather so it was a good trip. We had a guide book so we could read about the history of the Red Stone/Rock Castle.
