Several boat services operate on the Danube River in Bratislava, including the popular Twin City Liner rapid service to and from Vienna, as well as sight seeing ferries and leisure boat rides.
Summer time leisure cruises to the Danubiana Meulensteen Art Museum in Čunovo and the Devin Castle are also popular. Devin is just North of Bratislava and boasts one of the most important historical sites in Slovakia. The Castle has a written record dating back to 864 AD but unfortunately only large ruins exist now, as the Napoleonic armies destroyed the castle in Devin in 1809.

We are 2 persons traveling. We would like to take a day trip to Bratislava from Vienna. We plan to take the bus from Vienna to Bratislava but wish to take the boat back to Vienna. Is there a way to travel to Devin Castle and pick up transport back to Vienna from there without having to go back to the city of Bratislava?
