Premise
“Standing as a symbol of the once mighty and influential region of Styria, Eggenberg Palace holds a major historical and cultural place in the city of Graz and in Austria. Tucked away in the western part of Graz in the Eggenberg district, the palace is surrounded by gorgeous parkland and gardens and served as a statement of the power and wealth of the Styrian rulers. Among things to see are the highly decorated state rooms with the fascinating planetary room full of frescos, the Planetary Garden and the Pavilion. Eggenberg Palace is a must see to understand about the history of Styria and this region of Austria.”

“ Lonely Planet: "Lending Graz' Schloss Eggenberg broad splashes of green, these palace gardens are a relaxing place for whiling away the time amid squawking peacocks and deer that roam among Roman stone reliefs. The Planetengarten is based on the same Renaissance theme of planets you find inside the palace itself."”
