The architecture and original furnishings of the state rooms combine to create a unique Baroque work of art. The highlight is the Planetary Room.

Today

UNESCO World Heritage The 24 state rooms form an almost unadulterated work of interior art, in which the Baroque and Rococo furnishings combine to create a precious ensemble of outstanding value. The quality and extent of the preserved, authentic interiors, with more than 500 ceiling paintings, provide a unique setting for your visit to Eggenberg.

Winter closing times

Hibernating a palace

Or why are the state rooms closed during the winter?

Schloss Eggenberg’s piano nobile is a “time capsule” that embodies the Baroque as it were, not only in regard to its sumptuous interiors, but also in regard to their everyday – and often inconvenient – downsides. The rooms have retained their original appearance for over 250 years. They still have no heating and no electricity, only simple windows and chandeliers with candles. In reality, however, what appears very much like a disadvantage to the modern user is the most important factor in protecting and preserving the ensemble. The natural winter closing time is the simplest and safest way to preserve the cycle of 24 state rooms for further generations.
