I was surprised at the number of 4 and 5 Point reviews and decided to look myself. Alas, the style is to be seen in dozens of buildings in Graz alone. The fact that an Emperor is buried there does not make in more interesting...More

6€/person without any kind of information or explanation. The personal was not too kind. From the top of the tower you can't see the city as I expected. The view is worse than from the hill.

We went there 3 times, finally could go into. The open time is pretty limited. The garden outside is quite pretty.

The entrance is quite cheap and the inside is beautiful, full of frescos and ancient decorations. There is a tomb in the lower level that looks fascinating.
