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.

  • It's so beautiful and well managed and cared. The gardens are delicious and the inside the castle tour, very interesting

  • Beautiful palace and park. Great for any kind of portrait photo-session.

  • Beautiful and big castle. You have to pay to get inside the gardens that will allow you to access the castle.

  • The park & the castle is nice enough to visit - the real surprise was the collection: great pictures from ca 1100 until 1650, selected with taste.

  • Beautiful, great place for families !!!
