Description

© Universalmuseum Joanneum

Austria's largest hunting museum is located in Stainz Castle, built in 1695. The founder of the Universal Museum, Archduke Johann, bought the castle in 1840 and had it converted into a hunting museum. He was a passionate hunter himself.

Exhibition

The hunting museum in Stainz Castle was founded in September 2006 and offers a cultural-historical overview of all facets of hunting. With the help of an interdisciplinary approach and modern presentations, the museum shows various valuable exhibits ranging from baroque courtly pomp and hunting objects to everyday objects, historical weapons and miracle cures from folklore to artistic powder horns. On the second floor visitors learn a lot about wildlife ecology, animals, track reading, animal voices and modern hunting.

In addition to the hunting museum, the Stainz Castle also houses the agricultural museum.

How to get there

On foot or by bicycle:

Stainz Castle and its museums are within walking distance of the railway station in Stainz. From the train station you walk along the main square of the village to Grazer Straße. The stairs of the Jackob Rosolenzstiege, which lead to the Schlossplatz on a shorter way, offer a shortcut. If you don't like stairs or if you're cycling, turn left from Grazer Straße onto Klosterhöhe, which also leads to the castle. From the train station to the castle it is about 15 minutes by foot and about 6 minutes by bicycle.
