You can easily navigate there, as UFO tower is one of the highest points in Bratislava.
After the "Prístavný most" bridge, exit the highway in a direction of Einsteinova Street. Passinf the complex of buildings called Incheba turn right in direction to Viedenská cesta. In few minutes, you arrive just under the New bridge, where the parking spot is.
