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!

We took the guided tour. The variety and the insight into the history of this castle was fantastic. It took around 90 Minutes and we could have stayed a day. So much to see, from decoration to paintings to furniture. The tour around the first floor, the ground floor is still occupied by the owners, is a succession of historical... More

Take the number 1 tram to the end stop, a short walk to the Schloss. Lovely park, only 2 euros each. We spent a relaxing hour or so walking around, coffee and cake in the friendly café. We didn't go into the Schloss, maybe next time.

Three collections share the Schloss, the Old Masters gallery, the archaeological collection and the coin cabinet. It is situated in a park overlooking the town of Graz, take a tram from the central station to get there. Their main collection is the old Masters gallery. Some of the best works in the collection are at the start, the Medieval and... More

Schloss Eggenberg is UNESCO World Heritage site. Like at all UNESCO sites, there is a ticket for walk in the park and another for castle tour. There is a lovely picnic area in the park where you can relax and a big chance that a peacock will stop in for a cup of tea.

My partner i loved the outdoor park which costs 2 euro per adult to enter. Though manicured as part of the estate, it's great for picnics, strolling around and just listening the wind blow through. A one hour guided tour that costs 9.50 euro per adult, gives a good overall history of the palace and gives a sense of old,... More

We brought 30 university students here in May. Fabulous tour. What is most incredible, besides the grounds/gardens, is the 2nd floor that went untouched/unlived in for 150 years!!! The paintings and frescos are beautiful and the furniture original. The story is quite fascinating. There were not a lot of tourists there at the time so I'm assuming it's not a... More
