The palace of Eggenberg within the city limits of Graz is a UNESCO world heritage site. One can opt either to only see the gardens, or to buy a ticket which allows one to visit the palace on a guided tour, the archaeological museum, a gallery and a numismatic exhibition. Since they had their first open day for visitors this year when we were there, we chose to see pretty much everything. This post is only about the gardens, though. The reason? The birds, what else? First and foremost, the pride of peacocks.
Well, compared with the ostentatious peacocks every other bird will look a bit drab. Nevertheless, they’re wonderful too!
