Landeszeughaus, Graz

4.5
#2 of 11 in Museums in Graz
Landeszeughaus hosts the world's largest historical armory with over 30,000 pieces on display. Admire rows and rows of weapons, tools, and complete suits of armor used for both battles and parades. The armory was originally built to equip soldiers in defense against the Ottoman Empire in the 1600s, and Styria has carefully preserved the collection ever since. During World War II, authorities hid the equipment in remote castles and successfully avoided damage. Today, you can view the pieces in the original building. If you visit in wintertime, be sure to schedule a guided tour in advance. Add Landeszeughaus to your Graz travel itinerary, and discover new vacation ideas by using our Graz trip itinerary site .

    Looks small, but you can spend 2 hours just gazing in all old weapons and armors on display. Highly recommend a guided tour.  more »

    go hand see, especially if you are form the 'new world' (Australia, US, NZ) - and are interested in how 'they' were equiping their armys and miliyias in the middle ages. Get a tour!  more »

    This place is not one museum like the others. enter it, is to make a trip in time. Here you are, a soldier or Knight looking for your full armament: armor, helmets, pistols, Spears, shields,... 32 000 parts await you! must-see even if you're not fond of weapons.

    Beautifully preserved inventory. I'd suggest paying the extra €2 for an audio guide, if you want to learn everything about the myriads of medieval weapons an armors on display at the Graz armory.

    This vast collection of weapons and armour from 16th century was bought or donated by various European powers and nobles to Hapsburg empire for defence against Ottoman Turks. It was supposed to end up in Croatia (at that point part of Hapsburg Empire) but it never did. This is why exponents are almost in perfect condition. One of the best arms and armour museum I have ever been. Do not skip. It was worth every cent.

    A bit expensive ticket, but if you are interested in medieval times, it's worth the visit.

Where to stay in Graz

Austria’s second-largest city offers a large selection of accommodation options for every type of traveler. Outside of the city’s core in the Lend district are more affordable lodgings. Roughly a ten-minute walk to the Altstadt, this area provides an economical alternative while still keeping you close to the attractions. If you’re willing to compromise on privacy, the best prices are in private accommodations in local homes. Often this means sharing a bathroom with other guests and occasionally even the homeowners.
