Overview

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!

We had been so lucky to get a tour at night, the so called “Glanzlichter-Tour”. Only a few times per year they offer a tour at night (online reservation required), going through all the representative rooms at second floor, only illuminated by real candles. Together...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.

It is a beautiful Schloss. It was a pity the inner side was closed when I visited that place. The building itself is very good
