Owner description: 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! Please note: dogs are not allowed in the park to protect our peacocks.

The Eggenberg castle is located out of the center, use a car or tram no. 1. The building has to do with universe as it has 4 towers, 365 windows, 12 day and night rooms on each floor, the style is baroque and rococo, nothing more as the palace was for more then 200 years not used by the owner family, sold to state in 1939. There is no heating and no electricity, the Prunkraume on the 2 floor are splendid and are worth seeing - by a guided tour only. The castle is situated in a wonderful garden, it remains an island of peace and harmony till to our days.

We had an excellent guide for the 50 minute tour of the Palace and its interesting history. They split the tours between English and German speaking which was a great help. The Palace is magnificent and has design similarities to Schonbrunn Palace in Vienna. The paintings and the painted ceilings are wonderful. Very little furniture since the building was "used" during WW II, There also is an excellent art collection and a coin collection as well. Unfortunately all wording is in German and there were no audio guides. The gardens are beautiful and worth the time to take a walk.

We were lucky to be taken around this interesting castle by a lovely girl who spoke excellent English and to be on our own. The castle is set in glorious grounds and has some beautiful rooms. The little gothic chapel survives from earlier times. The grounds are glorious though we hadn't time to see all of thrm

We walked from centre of town to the Schloss. The grounds are large and we enjoyed the English style gardens. The two art galleries are well laid out, have a great collection of paintings with information in both German and English - wellworth taking your time over the artworks. The tour itself of the state rooms lasts just under one hour and is good value for the €2.50 charge per person. Our guide for the English tour was friendly and engaging, happy to answer any questions and interact with us. All in all, an enjoyable day!
