Accessibility at Schloss Eggenberg


The entrance to the park contains a bell for opening the door automatically. The routes around the castle are gravelled but still easy for wheelchair users to access. The toilet block has disabled access. The historic flooring inside the castle is not always easy to navigate by wheelchair but employees are always happy to help out if it is difficult. Wheelchairs can also be hired out for free.


Selected items in the Coin Cabinet can be observed in more detail in the display cabinets using a magnifying glass.

Assistance dogs

Assistance dogs are welcome in all of the buildings, park areas and exhibitions of the Universalmuseum Joanneum.

Renting wheelchairs

Wheelchairs can be rented free-of-charge on presentation of official photo ID at the ticket counter.
