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!

My Wife and I took the Funicular up to the castle enjoying a very pleasant walk back down, visiting the clock tower en route descending via the stairs to a small square with a very pleasant bar.

The Schloss is located outside the city. Take a tram. Very nice garden. The collection of the museum is common but interesting.

We enjoyed a stroll around the grounds and an English tour of the house. Unfortunately there are very little furnishings but the paintings make the visit worth it.
