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!

Austrian castles and gardens are beautiful and a visual treat for everyone and this is one of them. It has got everything- historical background, a rose garden, playing area for little kids, peaceful atmosphere and attractive peacocks. You can visit this place in any season.

Nice castle. The park around are amazing. There are separate entrance fees for the park and for the inside of the castle (you buy the latter at the castle entrance). Be sure to get there earlier so you don't miss the the room guided tour,...More

The Schloss and surrounding gardens are very beautiful. Unfortunately the inside was already closed when I got there. There's free parking for the visitors.

The Room Tour is interesting and well promoted but it was the gallery that was amazing. The stained glass and works from 1100 to 1550 were wonderful and you can get really close. Very underrated!

It is certainly worth to make a tour to Schloss Eggenberg, cheap entrance fee, EUR 8, but you see a very beautiful castle, not Windsor but small and very well looked after, also the park which surrounds the castle is worth to visit.

We visited this palace in summer. The garden is much bigger than the palace itself. The roses garden is nice, and we just strolled around and enjoyed the green grass. Also, there is the archeological museum, pretty boring for me... Whoever been to Schonbrunn in...More
