Schloss Eggenberg

Schloss Eggenberg is the most significant palace complex in Styria. Modelled on the Escorial in Spain, building work was started by Giovanni Pietro de Pomis in 1625 by order of Prince Hans Ulrich von Eggenberg (1568-1634). At the basis of the construction and interior design lies a comprehensive mathematical and allegorical programme. Thus seen, the palace is an architectural mirror image of the universe. From September 2005 onwards, Schloss Eggenberg will present itself as a multifaceted centre for old art and as an invitation to a journey through bygone eras.
