Devin Castle, Bratislava

(4.2/5 based on 1,500+ reviews on the web)
Strategically situated on a cliff above the confluence of two important rivers, Devin Castle bears evidence of prehistoric settlements as well as Roman and medieval ruins. The fortification walls encircle a landscape of open courtyards, staircases, and towers in uneven states of repair. Look for the small watchtower called the Maiden Tower balancing on a sole rock. Legend has it that many imprisoned lovesick daughters plunged to their deaths from this tower. See the foundations and the tiny model of the first Christian church north of the Danube. The castle houses a museum exhibiting archaeological objects and offers a range of outdoor activities, such as boat rides, hiking trails, and horseback riding. The upper castle has been closed to the public since 2008, due to reconstruction. See Devin Castle and all Bratislava has to offer by arranging your trip with our Bratislava trip itinerary builder.

  • The location is nice but the castle itself didn't impress me. Don't go there on a rainy or cold day. Probably in the summer it looks much better.  more »
  • We were in Vienna in Austria and perceive within walking distance and the ease of knowing that Castle, a beautiful place, which has a lovely view and its surroundings we can take great pictures, the place must be visited, entry left for € 1.50 per person and got a 24-hour ticket at the station for € 3.60 for two adults.

  • Devin Castle is absolutely amazing. It is possible to visit its ruins and have stunning views of the river Danube and the outskirts.
