We have enjoyed the visit 100%. The castle is beautiful and the city square is wonderful although it goes through the reconstruction by now. The view from the castle is unbelievable. You have to visit for sure. We had a lot of fun!

When you came out of the train station immediately you look straight towards the castle up above the town and you really just admire it or fall in love with it
And walk into town you get closer and closer but then you realise vow it is really a climb to the entrance to the castle but it's worth it because when you arrive at the entrance you look down to the old town and new town and miles after miles
It is Fantastic view
Just standing there is brilliant to admire the view
To walk around the castle is very interesting and there is a lot to see and a lot to do
View points are everywhere
Yes this is a wonderful castle in Slovakia
To watch it from old town is really beautiful
It is so powerful
Yes if you are in the area Trencin castle is something you need to visit
Old town is also very nice and a lot of charm

Trencin castle is an impressive and imposing mediaeval structure high above the town centre. It's well worth the climb up and to visit the towers, and see the exhibits inside. Once you've climbed the highest tower, there is a wonderful 360 degree viewing gallery!

You can see the castle long before you arrive in Trencin.
It towers above the town. We walked up from the Town Square, steps and walking paths take you to the first level, which has a church and a few other buildings on it. You then continue up the inclined pathway to the next levels. The stonework is impressive and you can imagine what it was like in the Middle Ages to feel protected from the enemy!
The views from the tower are wonderful.
Well worth visiting.

While we were in Bratislava, we rented a car, and we spent a whole day making rounds in the countryside, visiting small towns and villages. Our main destination was the town of Trencin in the northern part of Slovakia. We reached there, and we headed to the really impressive castle right away. You should think about parking space if you go with a car, because is not so easy. (But not so difficult either).
The castle was very good, the view was breathtaking, but because we were kind of late, we missed the last guided tour, so we just made rounds by ourselves. Very nice visit, beautiful colorful town, and great castle! totally recommended!
