  • Of the most beautiful castles and well set and adapted to visit them. Admission is very cheap. The gardens are quite large and then according to the entrance you can visit + or less corners of the castle.

  • A pretty castle overlooking the city. The climb is a bit rough but worth it. Small animations for the children. A nice view. no regrets

  • Great castle. A bit pricey to get in, but worth it. You can get to the top of the tower for some 360 views of the area. Super narrow stairs and tiny doorways get you and idea how it was back then. If you are driving through the area, definitely worth to make a stopover and stretch your legs!
  • Castle is impressive but for some reason they have wild birds like hawks, eagles and owls attached from their legs with 20 cm rope to the ground at the inner court yard. They cant fly or move much at all. So cruel! This is probably supposed to be some sort of tourist attraction but to me it was the saddest thing I've seen in Slovakia. I hope this will change soon!
  • We choose Path B with guide. Guide was great he knew so much about this beautiful castle and even there was a lot of people in our group everyone still heard him. I think 7€ is very reasonable price for fee for adult.
  • Dominant feature of Trencin, very iconic castle. Great location from which you have a nice view of local surroundings. Amazing view from the tower, however rest of the tour was okay at best. There is just not that much to show inside, unless you are really into this stuff.
  • Relatively cheap entry price with two available tours. Tour A is without a guide and you can see most of the castle from outside of the buildings and the Máté-tower from inside. Tour B is a guided tour which includes all available locations in the castle.
