SPECIAL EXHIBITION until November 5, 2023

For 200 years, which is Family Of Liechtenstein the Riegersburg is connected. As long as no family in front of it.

 

On October 22, 1822, Prince Johann I bought the Riegersburg at auction. On the occasion of this anniversary there is a special exhibition in the armory of the Riegersburg (between 1st and 2nd bridge). The connection of the history of the Riegersburg with personalities from the family was artistically interpreted by an artist from our region - Andreas Stern. The exhibition was accompanied scientifically and historically by Dr. Gerhard Fischer, who has already done a lot of research on the family in Western Styria in recent years.

 

In the course of the research, many interesting, exciting and previously unknown stories have been brought to light. For example, that Johann Josef had a summer castle built at the foot of Riegersburg, Franz de Paula wanted to demolish the castle to ruins about 170 years ago, or Alfred Geza supplied the Vatican with fruit from Riegersburg. For this purpose we have collected many photos, letters and diary entries.
