Eggenberg Palace

Graz, Austria
4.6 / 5
Magnificent 17th century palace, one of the main attractions of Graz and the surrounding area. The castle was erected for Prince Eggenberg, an advisor to Emperor Ferdinand II, who had a huge influence at court. The aristocrat was seriously interested in astrology, therefore the architect D.P. de Pomis designed the castle in the style of "Renaissance harmony". The building has four towers - symbols of the seasons, 52 rooms - the number of weeks in a year, 24 common halls, which corresponds to the number of hours in a day.
