Castle Riegersburg is situated above the Styrian village Riegersburg on a 482m high volcano rock. You are able to reach it by foot or with an elevator.

Castle Riegersburg is situated above the Styrian village Riegersburg on a 482m high volcano rock. You are able to reach it by foot or with an elevator. To walk up means to use the original path leading to the entrance of the imposing castle – it is over 850 years old and was impregnable for hundreds of years. It’s really impressing to pass the seven doors, to see the defense walls with its loopholes and the eleven bastions which make one sense about an eventful past. That’s why I recommend to taking the foot path instead of the elevator even if it is arduous. But you then have the possibility to enjoy the wonderful views over the land!
When you reach the entrance of the castle you have the possibility to visit some exhibitions like the witch exhibition in the cellar vaults of the castle or one concerning legendary women of Riegersburg and its castle. Since 1822 the castle is privately owned.
