Built across three epochs - Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque - the famous Castle Herberstein tells the story of more than 700 years of Styrian history and aristocratic family tradition. Thanks to the enclosed wildlife park, the castle has developed into a major tourist attraction. An additional highlight is its historic garden, a garden of temperaments with green, white, yellow and blue areas complemented by a morning, noon, afternoon and evening garden. Two museums complete your stay: The museum with sculptures of Bruno Gironcoli, one of Austria’s most famous contemporary artists, and the "Kunsthaus" (art house) in which international artists are on display.
