The federal sports and leisure centre.
Schielleiten Castle, the second largest baroque palace in Austria, was built between 1720 and 1730 by the imperial counts Wurmbrand-Stuppach. But the imperial counts must have been overstreched their finances by taking over the construction and so only the middle risalit, the two wings and the western risalit have been completed. It was created in the style of the Viennese high baroque in the form of a middle pavilion with side wings. The castle remained in the possession of the family until 1906, then changed hands twice and was finally sold in 1935 to the Republic of Austria. During the Second World War Schielleiten was used as Gau-sports-school, later as alternative accommodation for the Graz St. Anna Children's Hospital and military hospital.
Today, the jewel of the Castle Road is a popular wedding location that serves as a cultural center and, above all, as a sports hotel. Several times "hot air balloon Europe" and "World Championships" were held in front of the magnificent castle backdrop.
