This palace is flamboyant and brilliant. Apparently its architecture and layout are supposed to reflect the universe – they follow a very particular mathematics and allegory. It’s one of the grandest Baroque palaces in Styria. The attraction comprises of three parts:
The Palace Grounds: beautiful geometrical pathways course straight through neat lawns and pretty woods, following Italian and French landscaping styles. You may even sight white and blue peacocks on the grounds. In the northern corner of the grounds is a Planetary Garden. There is also a Lapidarium, where ancient Roman sculptures are exhibited.
The State Rooms: These lavish rooms have been preserved more or less identically to their 17th and 18th century designs, whether in furniture, tapestry or paintings.
The highglights are:
- The Planetary Room – astrology, mythology and other symbolism are united in a complex allegory in this room. It’s one of the best examples of Baroque interiors in the world. Check out the frescoes of the sun and the zodiac signs.
- The Indian Rooms, the Raunacher Rooms.
- The Osaka Folding Screen – a Japanese masterpiece.
- The Rococo Palace church.
