Eggenberg Palace (German: Schloss Eggenberg) in Graz is the
most significant Baroque palace complex in Styria. With its preserved
accouterments, the extensive scenic gardens as well as some additional
collections from the Universalmuseum Joanneum housed in the palace and park,
Schloss Eggenberg counts among the most valuable cultural assets of Austria.
Eggenberg Palace is situated at an elevation of 381 meters. With its
construction and accouterment history, it exhibits the vicissitude and
patronage of the one-time mightiest dynasty in Styria, the House of Eggenberg.
In 2010, Schloss Eggenberg was recognized for its significance to cultural
history in an expansion to the listing of the Graz Historic Old Town among
UNESCO World Cultural Heritage Sites.
