The Bel Étage of Eggenberg Palace has remained almost unchanged since the 18th century. Furnished with original 17th and 18th century designs, furniture, tapestries and decorations, the circle of 24 state rooms is among the most significant ensembles in Austria. It is extremely rare to find fittings of comparable artistic quality that have been maintained in such perfect condition and in their original state as in Eggenberg Palace. The core of this concept is the splendid Planetary Room.
