  • The Riegersburg was lucky and has never been conquered, so it is in perfect condition - which is rare for the region. So instead of walking in ruins and "dead rock" one can go around in rooms, see exc...  more »
  • So despite all efforts never succeeded in the armies of the Turks to occupy the fortress - which forms a high volcanic basalt Hill off in an absolute dream location by far away visible. Alone the ascent with the glass funicular (of course you can get on foot to the Castle Hill...) is a huge start. View grandiose, castle tour individually excellent designed and extremely impressive - even for families with children! Nice restaurant with a view of the entire landscape. Recommendation: walking down marching to the Castle Hill around to the parking lot. So we have visited many castles and chateaux – this was an absolute highlight "Ça vaut le voyage!"

  • My good friend Karl Heinz lives nearby. A beautiful place and area. The castle is just jaw dropping! GREAT chocolate factory nearby too!
  • Love visiting here whenever we are going to the Zotter Chocolate Factory. The castle is very impressive and you can either do the long walk up or take the little funicular at the back which saves you a lot of walking. Most of it is in German but there are a few handouts in English which you can pick up around the place to guide you through. It isn't overdone so don't expect some overwhelming multimedia presentation throughout the castle! Focuses on witches and witch burning too so little kids can get a little freaked out. Definitely worth a visit even if you walk around and don't go into the castle.
  • I just wanna Say is a very nice Place for a Trip,nice View and also splorer the Area for a nice Walk 🏰🕍🏤
  • Nice place for a day trip to see South East styria. In the rock walls it's possible to climb of you're a climber. Will come here again (:
  • Very well situated castle with great view on neighborhood.
