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!

UNESCO heritage site. Well, you know. It must possess some powerful appeal to be named so. The building was mentally thought for meaningful and knowledgable connection with universe.
One enjoyable thing is unchained free peacocks.
However, it doesn't totally suit my taste at last...

“A Castle in the City Center”
Reviewed December 23, 2013

OK, my sister has lived in Graz for 10 years, so I visit often enough, and ever couple times, I find myself back at the castle (esp when I'm with new people. . . and esp when those people are American, for whom castles are novel). It's a steep walk (or elevator ride if you're with the very old or young). Inside, well, the displays are much what you'd expect, and the views over the city are spectacular. At any rate, if it's your one trip to Graz, this would be hard to miss (and a shame).

“Worthy of the time to visit”
Reviewed November 10, 2013

We recently visited Schloss Eggenberg on a rainy and overcast day in Graz. Despite the poor weather, this is a must see attraction when touring Graz. We took tram number 1 in the direction of Eggenberg and the stop is close to the castle. All exhibits close for the winter season, starting at the end of October. For a 2 euro entrance fee, you are free to roam around the corridors of the castle and visit the gardens. I particularly enjoyed the photo opportunities here. There was a lift in the castle and bathroom facilities were very clean and modern.

We encountered two, free roaming, peacocks on the property who apparently are used to humans and they posed for my camera.

“Peaceful place”
Reviewed October 29, 2013

Eggenberg is a wonderful place where you can spend some free time, if you want to relax and calm down.There is a beautiful park, which is worth walk in every season. I haven't visited the schloss itself, because it was closed, but I was glad to see it at least from the outside.

“A perfect place for a stroll!”
Reviewed August 11, 2013

The grounds are kept quite perfect . The park is gorgeous and weddings are held here. The residence is wonderful to tour and some tours are held in English. The street train takes one right near the entance.
