Eggenberg palace, our second UNESCO World Cultural Heritage site, is located in the west of Graz and is within easy reach of the city centre. It provides a splendid example of the baroque style from the early 17th century. A walk through the beautifully tended English-style gardens, the symbolically designed planetary garden, the richly decorated state rooms and the impressive coin collection bear testimony to the extensive wealth and influence of this relatively short-lived but remarkable Eggenberg dynasty.

The Armoury – The largest historical weapon chamber in the world
Today, 32 000 originally preserved firearms, striking and cutting weapons as well as fighting and parade armour are the legacy of a period of 400 years of war and of weaponry development.
Alongside the impressively handcrafted objects, history is brought to life with information on the extremely tough conditions for the soldiers and the everyday lives of Styrians located on the eastern frontier.
