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!

Admission fees are paid separately for the garden and the guided tour to the State Rooms. If you are not a castle person, the garden is still worth a visit especially for younger kids with well maintained grass to run around and quite a few peacocks wandering around. The tour to the State Rooms is very good and after visiting... More

The grounds are tranquil and apparently enjoyed by locals. They're all very well maintained and beautiful. Would have loved to see the rose garden in bloom! The room tour was wonderful. You tour the entire third floor, moving from room to room. It's also a bit more allowing of walking around, however there are alarms if you over reach. The... More

By taking the tram 1 to Schloss Eggenburg stop, you are a short walk to the entrance. Nicely kept gardens with peacocks and a small pond. Unfortunately the castle opens in April, so we had to be satisfied with what we saw on the outside if the buildings.

The city and country views from this location are breathtaking. Be sure to note that the hands on the clock tower are reversed with the long hand indicating the hour and the short, the minute. It is a rather long hike down via the stairs so if you need to, ride the funicular back down. But know that you will... More

It was disappointing not to see the State rooms but you can wander the cloisters and the grounds are very pleasant.

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
