Devin Castle - Review

Located at the confluence of the Danube and the Morava rivers, the Devin Castle dates back to the pre-historic era. Known for proving as a strong structure for the city’s defense mechanism from the early 1st century right up to 1809 when Napoleon’s army destroyed the Castle, today, the place serves as an icon for Bratislava’s intense war history.

Highlights include:

  • Exhibition rooms in the castle where you can see seasonal displays of the city’s history.
  • View of the Danube from the Castle

Devin Castle, Bratislava Reviews

  • We cycled along the Danube to the castle. It was so crowded that we didn't go inside but enjoyed the view from outside. It was a nice ride, but right now lots of roadwork going up on the right hand side. Best avoid that. Lots of walnut and plum trees along the route. Take some plastic bags with you for foraging. Plenty of beer stops along the way. Good views of the city coming back down the river. Return to the city on the other side of the river. It's worth going down to the Apollo bridge and cycling across. If you want to shop, Au Park shopping center is very convenient before you cross the river. Less crowded than the other side. Much cooler and relaxed shopping area. Enjoy a cold beer beneath the UFO restaurant below the SNP bridge under the trees. Great view of Castle, Cathedral, etc etc

  • This is a definite must if visiting Bratislava. The first Sunday of each month they have a medieval fair which includes axe throwing bow and arrow shooting. There is a jousting show and everyone is in traditional costumes set in the time. This is truly a great place to take the family and to wander around. The castle itself is also very good to walk around it has a little Museum within the castle and is very informative. It also has breathtaking views of the surrounding areas including Austria.

  • Super beautiful, go there. Paid 5 Euro entrance, they have nice toilets and a drinking fountain. I recommend reading some info inside the cave-exhibition about the history. For example the place was blown into pieces by napoleon, and has been in the hands of many rulers.

  • Very interesting castle to visit and being further out of Bratislava there aren’t such big crowds to contend with. Free parking and nice restaurant at the bottom are a nice added bonus. Very interesting exhibition about the formation and history of the Slovak republic.

  • A very nice and calm place close to Bratislava city. A perfect destination for a weekend morning. One can take the bus service 29 or 129 from the city center, the journey - it's even a scenic one too- takes like 20 minutes. You can visit the historic Hrad Devin and walk a bit along the Danube. The site was a restricted area like 30 years ago, the border between Slovakia and Austria lies in the middle of the river. You can cross the Danube by boat, there are regular service to Hainburg, the nearest town in Austria.
