Landeszeughaus, Graz

(4.5/5 based on 220+ 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.

  • great suggestions in this collection of unique weapons, in its original place. There are true works of art carved on armor and robes
    View original
  • The Museum is located in the Centre of the city, where the weapons, armor and guns dating back to the 14th century are exhibited. Features three exhibition floors, actually very similar all levels. Required of a guided tour, which can be in English or German, at different times. Admission is 12 euros and two euros more have the right to enter other museums that are located nearby, within 24 hours. Bottom of the Museum is also a shop and a tourist information centre. It has bathrooms, lockers (leave bags required) and is not allowed to take pictures.

  • Once, something I hadn't seen before still old firearms in huge numbers, to the appropriate accessories. The price of admission is worth, if you are interested.

  • 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.
