city of designWhen 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.
