Devín Castle has a new official website


Devín Castle, the most frequently visited site of the Bratislava City Museum, has a new official website ↗︎. You can find all the important information to plan your visit to the castle, including current opening hours, admission fees, open exhibitions and upcoming events.

Here you will also find updated information about the accessibility of the castle area - for example, in winter it may be subject to unscheduled closure due to icy conditions or heavy snowfall.

The Events and exhibitions section also includes the event calendar ↗︎ with the option to switch to ticket sales. In the Discover Devín Castle section you will find enthralling texts about the history of the castle, the surrounding nature and archaeological research, which has been carried out in this location for more than 110 years.

The website also includes: Information on how to get to Devín Castle: Ako na Devín ↗︎ Booking forms for schools and organised groups: Školské a skupinové prehliadky ↗︎ Tips for activities in the castle’s vicinity: Čo po návšteve ↗︎ Rental possibilities: Možnosti prenájmu ↗︎ Visitor guidelines

The new official Devín Castle website is available in three languages (Slovak, English and German) and offers, among other things, an online extension of the physical information and navigation system in the castle grounds. This means that, when visiting the castle, you can scan the QR codes placed on the information and navigation boards and read the displayed texts while resting in one of the relaxation zones in the castle grounds or from the comfort of your own home.

The website also contributes to increasing the accessibility of the castle grounds for visitors with visual impairments. On the boards of the information and navigation system you will also find a QR code, which, when scanned, will soon allow you to access an audio guide at web Devín Castle ↗︎.

The new website was created as part of the project for the restoration of Devín Castle called Culture Across - Cultural Bridges across the Morava River, co-financed by the Interreg Slovakia-Austria Cooperation Programme, which was successfully completed in September 2023.
