The unique architecture of Schloss Eggenberg, the most important great house in Styria, is a complex symbolic representation of the universe. At the same time, with its impressive combination of Baroque interiors (magnificent state rooms), magical gardens and park, and priceless collections of the Universalmuseum Joanneum (Alte Galerie with its old masters paintings, Archaeology Museum and Coin Cabinet), Eggenberg contains a fascinatingly varied panorama of Styrian culture over the centuries.UNESCO World Heritage Site!

Whether you plan a stroll in the garden of the castle to look at the peacocks, or plan a full visit of the castle, or attend a concert at night, you will truly enjoy the place. It is charming.

We enjoyed a stroll around the grounds and an English tour of the house. Unfortunately there are very little furnishings but the paintings make the visit worth it.

We visited this place on the weekend and it was a day well spent.There were plenty of interesting vegetation to admire and there were benches to sit and relax. Children could play in the playground.

Admission fees are paid separately for the garden and the guided tour to the State Rooms. If you are not a castle person, the garden is still worth a visit especially for younger kids with well maintained grass to run around and quite a few...More
