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!

This was a great surprise. We took the tour--it is given in German and English, and was well worth the cost. The tour takes you through every room on the second (or third floor--don't remember well). The rooms are wonderfully decorated, much is authentic to the castle (the tour guide points out what isn't and what is). The tour is... More

We decided to use the tram to reach the Schloss and it far surpassed what we had hoped to find. The grounds are beautifully laid out and it's a lovely venue for a picnic if nothing else. We waited for our tour guide (Anna) to show us around and were pleasantly surprised that with only three of us going round... More

This is one of my favourite places in Graz. Go there! The Park is beautiful arranged and in spring and summer full of color and scents. If you are lucky you may see a baby peacock. At special dates you can have a picnic on one of the meadows (check the website). If you have time I recommend to make... More

Not a castle per se but a huge mansion in the middle of a large park. The gallery and planetary halls are interesting. The premises is dotted with Peacocks and a number of themed parks. A very good place to relax especially with the backdrop of the hills.

Was there in February and unfortunately just the gardens are open for visitors at that time of the year. Even though it is a stupendous place I would have been keen to venture inside the palace to check out the rooms.

Well kept caste in the outskirts of Graz. Surrounded with a lovely garden, with oeacocks walking around. The garden has a separate entrance fee of Euro 2. The castle is well kept: good design and architecture, elements from calendar, astronomie and geograohy. Impressive paintings in the ceilings. Nice porcellan collection. I would have appreciated more (copies of) furniture, as it... More

The palace was surprisingly tastless and poorely furnished. Well, that was the reality of Inner Austria King's life! The guides which show you the state rooms are very competent and always glad to answer your questions =)

You can't go wrong visiting Eggenberg, especially when the weather is nice and the peacocks aren't hiding.

A short drive from the centre of Graz with plenty of parking, free on Sundays, and a reasonable restaurant just outside the gates. There is a very small charge to enter the gardens, which are very pleasant to walk around and have plenty of seating and a small cafe. If you want to look around the house you have to... More

A gem close to city with a beautiful garden and a delicate palace. An interesting story about the family Eggenberg in the museum of coins.
