Landeszeughaus, Graz

4.5
#2 of 11 in Museums in Graz
Specialty Museum Museum
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.

  • Both quality & quantity ,very well displayed .Take the audio guide or a tour as nothing is explained .It is on four floors so give yourself time to see everything .  more »
  • Immediately behind the Hauptplatz and the Landhaus visit this huge Armory, one of the largest in the world with over 8000 pieces, 30 firearms, armor from horse even in mother of Pearl powder, guns, lances, arquebuses, etc. .. For fans of the genre, but of great interest to those who want to know an absolute gem of the city

  • Don't expect to find the ' usual ' Museum ... This is the weapons depot in Styria, which affects the amount of armor and weapons, all original, it collects. To visit with audio guide that explains, by accessing the various menus, the functioning of various weapons and their provenance. Spectacular horse armor.

  • 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.
  • Interesting museum. A lot of medieval armors and weapons that are well preserved.
  • Must see. One of its kind in the world.

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.
