A great surprise from Andrea for CaC RR, new Unesco site from Austria - Vielen Dank! Needless to say I love the Europa stamp too :)
The Eggenberg Castle was added to the Unesco list in 2010 as an expansion to the listing of Graz Historic Old Town. The construction of the castle began in the late Middle Ages and continued throughout the early Modern Era. It exhibits the importance and might of The House Of Eggenberg, once a powerful noble family of the Styria state. The castle reached its height in Baroque splendour in the 17th century - and the surrounding gardens are just amazing!
