Riegersburg castle, the most impressive landmark of Thermen- and Vulkanland Styria, is located at a height of 482m on a steep former volcanic rock. Worth seeing: The castle and its three exhibitions in around 30 magnificent rooms.
Castle Riegersburg was first documented in 1138. Its exact age is a mystery. However, there is proof that it was once known to be "impregnable" or the "strongest fortress in the Christian world". Guests are now very welcome on the once "impregnable" site. Connoisseurs and relaxed visitors ascend using the glass inclined lift to get to the castle grounds. Those who prefer a bit of exercise and the authentic feel of yesteryear, start their walk from the parish church at the centre of Riegersburg and pass seven castle gates on their stroll.
Three permanent exhibitions also bring visitors closer to things worth seeing and worth hearing:
