Apartments by candlelight

A special feature offered at Schloss Eggenberg is the opportunity to experience its Baroque rooms under Baroque lighting conditions. Since the State Rooms were not occupied during the whole of the 19th century, there were few alterations between 1770 and 1945. Even when the palace was opened again as a museum in 1948, no modernisation or technical improvements were undertaken in these rooms. No heating or other technical refinement has been installed and the chandeliers have not been electrified.  This presents us today with the unique opportunity to experience these apartments, on selected evenings during the year, under the lighting conditions that were created for the rooms and that residents of the Schloss then enjoyed – a real journey back in time, offering a rare glimpse into a world lost to us today and the chance for visitors to experience a luxurious setting afforded to only the very few.
