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 .

  • Really interesting to see all the armor and the guided tour helps yo u understand the history Behind everything. It would be 5 stars if they offered more tours.

  • dont miss this historical place when you go to graz as a tourist!!

  • This unique collection of medieval armoury and weapons is a must see for every Graz - visitor!
