Landeszeughaus, Graz

(4.5/5 based on 200+ reviews on the web)
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. Make Landeszeughaus a centerpiece of your Graz vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Graz trip generator.

  • The collection is definitely unique. Not for nothing, it is the largest collection of medieval weapons in the world. It gives the spectators but also a good overview of the life of the Knights

  • Arms Museum is next to the State Office on Herrengasse Street in the old town. Here 32000 something is stored weapons. Store it is first stored in the State Office building, because it no longer State Office building next to it was built new arsenal. Museum State Office building next door and wall color and style building completely the same, so at first the entrance, where I don't know at all. When you walk back and forth, I finally realized was still before the opening. 10:00 is open. Therefore not available at tourist office, later.

  • The biggest armoury of the world from the Renaissance / early modern period. Awesome almost been unbearable for anyone with special interest in edged weapons and armor, but also firearms from the early modern period (HEMA people or reenactors). Still more than interesting for anyone with average interest. In winter, a visit only with management is possible and limited therefore on about 1 h. A visit at a different time of year is so recommended, especially when it wants to study the weapons. The guide was excellent: our guide was content very competent and while entertaining and friendly, great. Photographing unfortunately is not even allowed without Flash, which is very bad for especially interested. The books to be purchased via the Landeszeughaus are however very good. All in all an absolute highlight in Graz.

  • Must-do for every tourist in Graz. Thousands of medieval weapons and armoury. Perfekt for the kids. Boys love them.
  • Even for citizens always good to visit . COOL thing is that you can get an audio guide with a lil display and the information/explaining you get is really good .
  • This museum is a must-see for people interested in weaponry and medieval stuff, and also a great place to visit for everyone not fitting in that picture. The collection is huge and very, very clean. Simply impressive. Don't forget to bring a coat if it's cold outside, because there's no heating.
  • As a clay shooting fan this was a must visit on our agenda. The collection is MASSIVE... All brand new, unused weapons and armour ready to equip an army of 6000 men! Everything is laid out neatly in dedicated storage, with separate sections for each type if weapon, on several stories, ready for action. We joined a guided tour at 1pm which of course allowed us to appreciate the finer details in depth. This is one of the best sites in Graz and by far one of the best armoury displays worldwide... Located smack in the middle of the old town... Not to be missed
  • More than 30K guns, ammunition and shields stored in this 4-story wooden floor museum. The biggest arms collection in Europe, it's a real gem.
