My wife and I went on a week day and practically had the castle to itself. I had visited this castle about 10 years ago and there are some great improvements. Before you could walk around and look in rooms. Now there are several rooms...More

Seated atop a volcanic cliff surrounded by vineyards, Riegersburg is very impressive from below, with optional funicular ride or wide, do-able path to the top (but only for the decently able-bodied; as is the case of many European attractions, the castle is definitely not ADA...More

The castle is really imposant on a basalt cone and the only castle in Austria that never has been conquered in its 900-1000 years. There are three museums inside. One is about weapons, one about wiches and one about the castle. There is a restaurant...More

The combination of nature and human ingenuity makes this castle (owned by the Prince Liechtenstein family) so attractive. We admired it from a distance, closer from all angles, and from the castle grounds, and could not get bored with it. The tickets are pricey, but...More

We entered at the small gate at the bottom of the hill. Parking is tricky by the graveyard. But once we got into the park area, it was incredible. A long, steep climb on cobblestones--but worth it. Views at the top were spectacular. The castle...More
