SEGGAU CASTLE, rising above Southern Styria’s wine-growing area, can be seen for miles around.

The castle’s history goes back to Roman times, and an utterly unique lapidarium bears witness to this. The upper castle, built by Salzburg archbishops in the 12th century as an administrative and missionary bastion, and expanded by the bishops of Seckau (hence the name, though the current spelling has been employed since the 19th century) beginning in 1219, also harbours outstanding artistic treasures.

SEGGAU CASTLE served as the seat of the Styrian bishopric until 1786, and served on as its summer residence well into the 20th century. Since then, a modern convention centre that harmoniously fuses tradition with modernity has been incorporated into the site.
