    History

    "The strongest fortress in Christianity".

    This is how the famous Commander Field Marshal Raimund Count of Montecuccoli described Riegersburg Castle, the Styrian landmark that rises high above the region.


    Numerous archaeological objects testify to a settlement on the Burgberg as early as 6,000 years ago due to its unique protective position.


    Riegersburg Castle was first mentioned in documents in 1138. However, the impressive basalt rock on which the castle was built was already inhabited 6000 years ago. With its extensive fortifications, the largest Baroque castle in the country was considered the strongest fortress in the West and could never be conquered. Even when the fortress was weakened by plague and hunger between 1469 and 1490, it withstood all attacks by the Turks and Hungarians.
    Elisabeth Katharina Freifrau von Galler (* around 1607; † 1672) inherited the Riegersburg in 1648. She went down in history as the most colourful owner. The "bad Liesel" was married three times (she divorced her third husband!) and lived at odds with numerous secular and clerical neighbours.
    In 1822, Riegersburg Castle came into the possession of the Princely House of Liechtenstein, which saved the castle, destroyed in 1945, from destruction.

    In new splendour
    In recent years, the complex has been extensively renovated and an inclined lift installed. Today it is one of the best-known tourist attractions in Styria. Its changing exhibitions on the topics of "witch hunts", "weapons" and "life at the castle" are always worth a climb. The new castle tavern also provides excellent catering. A unique experience is also offered by the bird of prey watch, the via ferrata, the castle wine and the regularly held knights' festivals.
