Description

© Universalmuseum Joanneum

The Kunsthaus in Graz houses a permanent exhibition of contemporary art from Austria and the world from 1960 to the present day. But the big highlight is the unusual building itself

In 2003 the Kunsthaus Graz was opened as an architectural finale of the "European Capital of Culture Year". The biomorphic building by architects Peter Cook and Colin Fournier is now affectionately referred to as the "Friendly Alien". The outer facade of the Kunsthaus is supported by a 900 square metre media installation by the designers realities:united. The light tubes combine media technology and architecture and turn the Kunsthaus itself into a screen for art installations.

How to get there

On foot or by bicycle:

The Lendkai with the Kunsthaus Graz is not far from the Mur. The Kunsthaus can be reached by foot or bicycle within 15-20 minutes from the railway station. The path leads from the train station to Europaplatz and then on to Keplerstraße, Rebengasse and then right onto Annenstraße. From there it goes straight ahead to Lendkai.

Cyclists need about 7 minutes via Keplerstraße to Lendkai and along the river to Lendkai 1 and the Kunsthaus.
