Countless myths, and tales of adventure and mystery surround this imposing landmark in eastern Styria, which was never taken. Once considered to be the strongest fortress in Christendom, the castle’s many rooms today host two exhibitions: Witches and Sorcerers" in the cellars and "Legendary Riegersburg - Legendary Women" in the state apartments. Getting up to the castle is an experience in itself. Kilometre-long defensive walls with countless crenels line the historic footpath that winds its away past eleven bastions and through seven gateways. The castle can also be reached with less effort by taking the modern inclined lift. The Riegersburg is only 40 km from Stegersbach.
