In winter, the castle is closed but it’s possible to get into the big garden and into the courtyards of the castle. If you have time and the weather is good, it worth it specially with children. They will enjoy the peacocks and ducks. A big space outdoor for children games is under construction. Announced to reopen in April 2020.

A well earned UNESCO world heritage site. The palace / grounds were spectacular. The museums / state rooms were closed due to the time of year but the admission price was so reasonable and what you get even without those extras is so amazing that it's a must see at any time of year. Try not to miss this.

We escaped the city to visit the Palace and found it a haven of peace and tranquility. We enjoyed an excellent tour of the state rooms with an English speaking guide-just the two of us and a young man from Taiwan-and were very impressed with the accessible presentation of pictures in the art gallery. We enjoyed strolling round the grounds and the cafe was beautiful situated in a sunny pavilion. A lovely antidote to the busy city. Just a word of advice-the signage to the Palace was poor: cross over the road from the tram stop, turn left (back towards the city) and after a few yards turn right up to the entrance on the right.

Eggenberg Palace is a masterpiece and boasts of stunning architecture and is well maintained.It is situated in one corner and was slightly away and we were wondering if we should visit it or not. It is a direct ride on Tram 1 and took us about 10-12 minutes from the Hauptbahnhof. We went on a hot day but were surprised by the cool and lush green gardens surrounding the palace. The rooms are well maintained and can be entered via a guided tour only - available in English, German and Italian. Loved the grandeur of the rooms and how well maintained they are. Touching and photography are strictly prohibited. Since it was held by two different royal families, we see the dark Baroque style pictures on the roofs and very pastel-y and light pictures on the walls. Their collection from the far east (China/Japan) is also worth seeing. There have huge collection of art and coins on display as well which you could visit on your own pace. The grounds are pretty with beautiful gardens with peacocks and ducks.

Took a day visit to Schloss Eggenberg to see both the castles state rooms and the various museums in the grounds. The tour of the state rooms is a must, with the art work and decoration being truly stunning. There are also plenty of interesting exhibitions on regularly, such as one for religious fine art. The grounds are lovely and very well kept with peacocks wondering around.
