How to get there by a car: The fastest way is the highway Bratislava - Trnava. (40 km). From Trnava to Dechtice (18 km). In Dechtice turn left. Very soon turn right and keep straight on (8 km) to the Dobra Voda village.
If you like driving a car, you can get to the Trstin via Malokarpatska vinna cesta (Male Karpaty wine road) from Bratislava, Raca, Pezinok, Modra, Casta, Smolenice. By the way, three other castles are on your left side on the route from Bratislava to Dobra Voda: Biely Kamen - ruins hidden in the woods in Svaty Jur, and castles Cerveny Kamen and Smolenice.
The castle is close to the village. The starting point is the cemetery, where the Slovak poet Jan Holly is buried. You need less than one Pajstun to ascend to the ruins which lies 320 meters above the sea level. (Pajstun for us means a half-hour of walking up to the hill).
