Off the beaten track

Sport, art, culture & co 

The federal capital in the green heart of Austria is a student city – that’s why you can turn night into day in one of the clubs or go shopping for cool streetwear. But Graz also offers plenty of action for all age groups.

    Elevate Festival

    From 28.02 to 04.03 2018 the Elevate Festival for Music, Art and Political Discourse will be taking place around the Schlossberg. Highlights: Wikileaks activist Julian Assange, linked live from London, or DJs Koze, Nosaj Thing and Jackmaster, whose music you can dance to until the wee hours of the morning.

    Filmzentrum im Rechbauerkino

    Founded in 1977, the film centre in the Rechbauerkino is today still a popular address for the cultural scene of Graz and lovers of art house films. A real gem in the old town, especially for those who prefer to enjoy movies away from XXL cinemas.

  3. 3


    Climbing without a rope and a harness has become a trend sport - not just for professional athletes, but for everyone. With an area of 1600m², the largest bouldering hall in Austria is just outside the city centre of Graz.

    Gallery Lendnine

    If you haven't had enough after a visit to the Kunsthaus Graz, then you should take a closer look at the Lendnine gallery, which is just a stone's throw away and is currently exhibiting works by the Catalan artist Sandra Partera, amongst others.
