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!

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

By taking the tram 1 to Schloss Eggenburg stop, you are a short walk to the entrance. Nicely kept gardens with peacocks and a small pond. Unfortunately the castle opens in April, so we had to be satisfied with what we saw on the outside...More

The city and country views from this location are breathtaking. Be sure to note that the hands on the clock tower are reversed with the long hand indicating the hour and the short, the minute. It is a rather long hike down via the stairs...More

It was disappointing not to see the State rooms but you can wander the cloisters and the grounds are very pleasant.

The Number 1 Tram takes you with two blocks of this Palace. The museums open April 1st, but the impressive gardens with strolling peacocks is open year-round. A lovely walk in the park even for late winter.

This is more a problem with Google Maps navigation--but it leads you to the side which isn't the entrance. I walked 3 sides around and gave up because I was running out of time (yes, I'm sure it was on the side I didn't go...More

The gardens of the castle alone are worth a visit, I was there in summer so everything was in full bloom. There's a lovely rose garden on a hill with botanical descriptions and big old trees to hug. Outside the perfect balance of a kept...More
