Fire-breathing dragons and toxic basilisks, seductive sirens and shy unicorns – they all have their home in a magical realm which begs to be discovered this year at Schloss Eggenberg. Myths and fables tell adventurous stories of the many legendary animals that have amazed us for millennia. For a short time, they escape the confines of old books and paintings and come alive – so come and discover them!

 

An exhibition for children and families
