Nature – Graz! – Cuisine

culture


kunsthaus

The Kunsthaus opened in 2003 when Graz was the "European Capital of Culture". Architecture-Icon Peter Cook and Colin Fournier designed it and made it a center of attraction in Graz. It is an exhibition center for contemporary art.

Sculpture Park

In the Austrian Sculpture Park you can discover the lotus ponds, rose gardens, labyrinths and mazes, that are more home to over 60 contemporary sculptures, showing off their full potential. The dialogue between art and nature is embedded in the seven hectare large park designed by the landscape architect Dieter Kienast. He turned the park 7 kilometers south from Graz into an 'oasis of declaration'.

April to October, Mo-Sun, 10am until 20pm

city of design

When it was appointed a "City of Design", Graz was catapulted into the premier league of the world´s most future-oriented centres of population as distinguished by UNESCO, alongside such metropolises as Berlin and Montreal. But that´s by no means all we´ve got to set us apart. We are also hugely proud of the wonderful people of Graz, the city´s beautifully sunny weather, open-minded art and culture scene and we could go on.

Graz!
