Riegersburg Castle has the reputation of being one of the most popular excursion destinations in Styria, not only because of its impressive location, but also because of the valuable partners who provide action and variety on the grounds.
In the following we would like to introduce our partners in the castle area.
The castle ghost Rüdiger has hidden a letter in each of the 7 gates on the castle path to Riegersburg Castle. It doesn't matter whether you go up the castle or come down from the lift and walk down the castle path - it doesn't make any difference when searching.
All 7 letters make up keyword, it just has to be put together correctly first. Whoever can name the keyword in one of the castle's shops will receive a small reward! Good luck - you can do it!
A help sheet for the 7 letters is available at the description boards (castle entrance or lift exit) or in the shops.

The only via ferratas in eastern Styria are located directly on the volcanic rock on which Riegersburg Castle was built. The Leopold's route (170m), the difficult alternative (60m) and the Heinrich's route (190m) can be reached from the castle entrance in the village of Riegersburg. Equipment (only in connection with a trainer) and further climbing tours are available at Naturbursch Riegersburg.
Ein Wein, so einzigartig wie die Riegersburg
On the strongest fortress in Christendom - Riegersburg Castle - exceptional grape juices are created. Sublime, in the vineyards of the castle rock, on basaltic, mineral soils unique vines thrive. Down in the valley - on the Hofberg - the traditional winegrowing family Bernhart perfects the precious drops. Valuable. Noble. Elegant. Like the Riegersburg.
