ENJOYING GRAZ

UHRTURM / CLOCK TOWER

The Clock tower on the Schlossberg, visible from almost anywhere in the city, is probably the best-known landmark of the Styrian Capital. It was part of the fortress complex, first mentioned in documents from the 13th century. Unlike the rest of the complex, it was saved from destruction by Napoleon because the citizens of Graz bought the tower free.

KUNSTHAUS / MODERN ART MUSEUM

The futuristic art museum rises above the roof of the old town like a giant, black balloon. The “friendly alien” as their builders, the British architects Peter Cook and Colin Fournier called their creation, was built as if it was spreading out like a wobbly mass. It focuses on contemporary art and is home to a number of changing exhibitions every year.

ALTSTADT / OLD CITY CENTRE

The city centre of Graz is considered the best preserved historic centre in Central Europe and was included in the UNESCO World Heritage List in 1999. Enjoy a terrific view of copper-colored rooftops from the Schlossberg, or stroll through streets and alleys that offer a unique blend of modernity and tradition.

SCHLOSS EGGENBERG / EGGENBERG PALACE

Eggenberg Palace, the former home of the von Eggenberg family, is a unique synthesis of the arts dating back to the early Baroque period where architecture and design combine to create a complex symbolist representation of the universe, the cosmos of an educated statesman.

COLORFUL FALL

Some say autumn is the most beautiful time to visit Graz. Parks and avenues shine in fantastic colors, giving the city a unique flair. There’s hardly anything better than enjoying a glass of Sturm (Young wine), eating some freshly roasted Maroni (Chestnuts), and enjoying the last warm days of the year.

LANDESZEUGHAUS / STYRIAN ARMOURY

The Styrian Armoury is the largest historic armoury in the world.  With over 32,000 preserved objects it offers more than a glimpse into our chequered, conflict-ridden past. The collection includes armors and weapons from the 15th to the 18th century.
