Castle Church

The chateau church was originally completely frescoed, but in its current state only the frescoed ceiling is preserved. The castle church does not have its own pews - it is empty and has two or three entrances. A ground-level main entrance at the back of the chateau, an entrance on the south side accessible from the back arcade area on the 1st floor of the chateau, and another accessible via the sacristy also from the chateau corridors on the 1st floor. 

The largest structural change in the course of the Rococo renovation of the palace by the court architect Josef Hueber was the installation of a church in the space of the Eggenberg Palace Theater starting in 1754. The old wooden gallery of the theater was converted into an oval gallery integrated into the cycle of state rooms, from which family and guests could follow the mass.

This small but very beautiful church as part of the Schloss Eggenberg is suitable for mass, readings, concerts and weddings.
