Graz offers striking architecture! The Joanneum Quarter is the centrepiece of Austria’s first public museum and constitutes a significant urban landmark. The Kunsthaus - the friendly alien, which seems to have ‘landed’ in the historic city centre in 2003. Said Kunsthaus, a museum of contemporary art, soon became the modern landmark of the city. Another gem of contemporary architecture in Graz is the Murinsel, an artificial island in the middle of the river. This futuristic looking island links both sides of the river Mur. After having visited these sites enjoy the stunning view from a terrace of a rooftop cafe - whilst having a drink - to the giant clocktower perched atop Schlossberg hill and over the vibrant city centre beneath.

This visit includes a guide, the entry and tour of the Kunsthaus and one drink per person. Reservation is mandatory.
