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!

The Number 1 Tram takes you with two blocks of this Palace. The museums open April 1st, but the impressive gardens with strolling peacocks is open year-round. A lovely walk in the park even for late winter.

This is more a problem with Google Maps navigation--but it leads you to the side which isn't the entrance. I walked 3 sides around and gave up because I was running out of time (yes, I'm sure it was on the side I didn't go to). Annoying and a waste of time if they haven't located it correctly to help...

The gardens of the castle alone are worth a visit, I was there in summer so everything was in full bloom. There's a lovely rose garden on a hill with botanical descriptions and big old trees to hug. Outside the perfect balance of a kept garden and some pure nature. The castle is kept in its original beauty and accommodates... More

I have taken the tour of this luxurious palace twice and walked it's sprawling and well-manicured gardens four times. It is well worth the ticket price to take the full tour. It seems to be an underrated gem of Austrian heritage.Take two flights of the stairs to the beginning of the tour where it will take you through all four... More

If you are looking for some peace and nature do not miss this park, very calm and peaceful. Located 15 minutes by tram from the train station. A must when You are in Graz.

We got there for a walk, but it was not as we expected. I know it was a winter day but it did not give us reason to pay 2€ per person to visit the gardens. The schloss was closed. Maybe in the summer/spring things are different.

I visited when the palace museum was closed, but enjoyed walking around the park very much to see natural beauty. There were quite a lot of peacocks around, and I've never seen such amazing colours on a bird! Definitely would want to visit again to see the interior next time.

I do not know which is better, the Schloss, or the park/gardens surrounding it. The Schloss defies normal description, with its mathematical precision of towers, windows etc. conforming to the calendar. The park is a paradise with the added delight of the multitude of peacocks strolling around the grounds. It is worth the visit by all means.

When in Graz, this is a must-see place: if you take the guided visit in the state rooms of the palace, the history of the place and the power games come alive. This is not the most glamorous palace you could see, but you get a glimpse of the history of the area.

If you are staying in Graz more then teo days you should definitely visit this beautiful palace. We have guided tour, so it was very interesting to learn how palace was built. For every single thing in palace there is a reason why is there. For example there are 365 windows because of the 365 days in a year and... More
