Landeszeughaus, Graz

4.5
#2 of 62 in Museums in Styria
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 .

  • The place is a haven of gorgeous collections of armoury, very interesting for me, too. A must-see in Graz !  more »
  • If you like weapons it is pretty solid, but the sight of a thousand guns, in a kind of ammunition depot, caused me to leave the property after several minutes.

  • A visit to the Zeuhaus should not be missed. A unique collection of medieval weapons and armor that doesn't exist anywhere else in the world. But you should take time to grasp all of this properly. All is also systematically great and explained. We are absolutely thrilled.

  • If I could use only one word to describe this place it would be - awesome! There are thousands of various pieces of armor, weaponry and other military artifacts to admire, a dream come true for any history buff. We even got to see the famous horse armor (the guide kindly asked us to keep our pictures for private use, so I'll respect their request, but there are plenty of pictures of it online). Armory is accessible only via guided tour, but it's well worth the admission fee (12 EUR for adults).
  • Absolutely unique collection of war equipment from the middle ages! There is nothing comparable worldwide! A must-see for every tourist visiting Austria. Easy to reach in the city centre of Graz. Guides available, Audio-Guides, too. Museum shop available. Wheel-chair and push-chair accessible.
  • Amazing place. Come in summer or spring though. Learned a new German expression - "I smell the match"
  • Great Museum of war history.
  • Biggest standing armory in the world. Nice place to see
