Art – everywhere in Graz.


  1. 1

    Kunsthaus Graz - contemporary, lively and utopian

    Graz was the "European Capital of Culture" in 2003 and since then you can visit (inside) and admire (outside) the Kunsthaus Graz - the "Friendly Alien" of the city - with its contemporary art exhibitions. The more than conspicuous building is today actually the architectural landmark of the city, thanks to its 15 light inlet trunks. The trunks alone are worth seeing.

  2. 2

    Murinsel Graz

    Here in Graz an excursion "to the island" is quickly accomplished: from the “Friendly Alien” we quickly cross the street and a footbridge to the second architectural highlight of the city of Graz which still dates back to its time as European Capital of Culture. Or is it rather a ship than a small island? It doesn't matter, it's extravagant, it's design and you get: the feel of rushing water, cocktails and coffee. Or more.

    Schell-Collection - The Key-Museum

    Is the Schell-Collection an art installation, a freaky museum, or the private pleasure of a lover of keys? Find out, but remember, where the "key" plays a role in daily life: all I'm saying is: key experience, key figure, key competence and musical key.
