  • The castle is beautiful to look at from the outside. Inside there is little or nothing to see. So not worth the 12 euros paid in two and also had been free guided tour was so boring. Unnecessary driving when the few artifacts and the history of the castle is largely explained by large panels. Plus there's only three rooms with few exhibits the rest is a bare Cross and sketchy spaces. What a disappointment!

  • Trenčín is a beautiful city and view from the castle in the US it only clarified. The path to the castle was accurately indicated there is no chance that you would netrafili. The staff were friendly and very friendly reception staff at the Castle, and we našlapali like mad, it certainly was worth it:)

  • Beautiful castle in Trenčín. It is easy to reach and you can buy tour with different languages. Many concerts are held at the castle during the summer. There is Beautiful views from castle walls...
  • Terribly boring place with an awfully boring tour guide. Definitely one of the most boring castles in Slovakia. The only thing worth going for is the amazing 360 view from the highest castle tower. Unfortunately you have to take and suffer through the tour to get there.
  • Must see, if you are in Trencin. Castle is in very good state, with exhibitions and other entertainment on its premises. View from castle tower is amazing.
  • Good place. Amazing history. Great 360 views from top. Need to walk also in the city to enjoy the views of castle.
  • I absolutely adore the experience. It offers a lot more plentiful than one would imagine. 11/10 would visit again
