Landeszeughaus, Graz

4.5
#2 of 52 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 .

  • 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.

  • This unique collection of medieval armoury and weapons is a must see for every Graz - visitor!
  • Absolutely amazing place - worth the visit! Fantastic assortment of armory and really helpful staff
  • Impressive collection! Awesome for pictures. The Audioguide ist very focused on the elements inside the museum, which makes sense, but there is not much history of battles and the region if you are interested in it.
  • No English guide or explanation cards next to displays. Only in German for detail makes it boring for non native speakers
  • Huge collection and a good audio tour for a great price! The building's too old for AC though, so it gets pretty hot here.

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.
