Explore the archeology museum, planetary garden, and the art gallery at Schloss Eggenberg, the most significant Baroque palace complex in the region. Featuring 365 windows and 24 state rooms, the 17th-century country house features decor based on Greek and Roman mythology, and boasts an art gallery with a preserved collection of medieval paintings. Learn about the palace's history on a guided English-language tour, where you'll soak in the rooms' elaborate decor, depicting the mechanisms of the heavens, world history, and religious values. The palace is easily accessible via public transportation from the city center; if you work up an appetite, stop at the on-site cafeteria.
