Arts and Culture
Graz was named the European Capital of Culture 2003 for good reason – located on the Mur river, the capital of Styria has plenty to offer. Taking a cable car journey up to Schloßberg provides you with a wonderful view of the charming old town, which is a UNESCO World Cultural Heritage Site. In addition to the Kunsthaus and a variety of museums, annual events, such as the “Aufsteirern”, the “Diagonale” film festival and the “Steirischen Herbst”, ensure that there is no shortage of culture to enjoy.
Recreation and Entertainment
The landscape of Graz and its immediate surroundings is ideal for a range of recreational activities all year round. The areas to the north and east of the city provide inviting trails for mountain bikers, runners and those simply looking to stretch their legs in the city’s green surroundings.
