Owner description: 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!

“Surprisingly interesting”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 12, 2012

Good time to visit in the warmer months, you can stroll though the grounds, watching the peacocks at their display.
Join a tour to see the rooms on thefirst floor, and ....
Well,way more to see there than I thought, as it is just a small castle in styria!

“Tiny Palace”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 9, 2012

We visited this palace in summer. The garden is much bigger than the palace itself.
The roses garden is nice, and we just strolled around and enjoyed the green grass.
Also, there is the archeological museum, pretty boring for me...
Whoever been to Schonbrunn in Vienna - there is nothing to compare, but if you're already in Graz, why not.

“Excellent”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 21, 2012

this is a must-see spot if it is your first time to Graz. Very easy to access by public transport. Don't miss the guided tour that are in German or in English. Disappointed that there is no English description in the coin museum.

The entrance fee of the Park leading to the Palace is EUR2 and the entrance fee for the Palace is EUR6. But, if you pay EUR 9, you can visit four more key museums in the old town of Graz in the same day. Entrance fee for each of this museum is EUR8. Thus, EUR11 for the day-pass is definitely a very good deal. Just need to do a little bit of planning, you definitely can visit at least 4 museums in a day.
