Architecture, Museums, Cathedrals & Monuments


Graz has prepared a rich program full of excursions for its guests. Travelers should definitely not forget to visit Armoury Museum. The beautiful museum, which was one of the largest armories of the city several centuries ago, now stores approximately 30 000 priceless artifacts.

Schlossberg Mountain is an interesting attraction. It is sometimes referred to as Castle Mountain. Here, at an altitude of 400 meters, several centuries ago was built a beautiful castle. Today travelers can get to the top of the mountain by funicular or make a walk, which certainly leave a lot of impressions. There is an observation deck right in front of the castle, from which visitors will admire beautiful panoramic views of the city.
Burg Castle is a no less interesting architectural object. The castle is located east of the city's main square. The building was constructed in the 15th century, but the castle was repeatedly reconstructed during its long history. Today tourists have a wonderful opportunity to walk through the cozy courtyard of the castle and observe the incredible decoration of its inner premises. A few words should be said about the city's main square, Karmeliterplatz, which got its name from an ancient monastery. In the end of the 18th century the premises, which belonged to the monastery, were converted into police stations, but the square located in front of the buildings has retained its name until today.

The eastern part of the square is the location of a beautiful memorial that was erected in the memory of World War II victims. Without a doubt, Mausoleum of the Emperor Ferdinand II is one of the most beautiful architectural monuments of the city. This is a beautiful Baroque building that is used as a tomb of the royal family. The mausoleum can safely be called a beautiful work of architectural art. Museum Joanneum is also an interesting cultural institution. The museum was founded in 1811 and has been exhibiting priceless collections of zoological, geological, botanical and other natural items.
