Overview
More
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!

It was so nice after the crushing crowds of Prague to come here and have a relaxed and quiet tour around the building with an excellent guide. Our tour was in English, was interesting and the guide answered any questions from the group. It was...More

The amount of wealth and design which was expended in creating this castle is beyond words. The artwork in the walls and displayed on the ceilings is incredible! Highly recommended and very reasonably priced for a guided tour.
