    Garden Castle Herberstein

    Not just animal lovers, but also garden enthusiasts, nature lovers and culture vultures are catered for here. Idyllic paths and trails lead through the 40 ha estate into Herberstein Castle’s gardens. Dive into another world and allow the mighty castle to transport you back to times gone by. Fragrant flowers and vibrant shrubs invite you to spend some time in the gardens, which date back to the 16th century. They were reconstructed in line with Baroque fashion in 1997 and have shone as a prime example of that period ever since.

    Gironcoli Museum

    Next to the gardens you will find the Gironcoli Museum, which was opened in 2004 when an old barn that dated back to 1594 was combined with modern architecture. Inside the museum you can get to know the largest sculpture collection by Austrian sculptor and artist Bruno Gironcoli, who died in 2010.

    The restaurants in the Animal World will round off your visit and souvenirs can be purchased from the shop. Dogs are welcome at the Animal World and can join in the fun with their owners.
