Styrian Armory (Landeszeughaus) Tours
Read MoreShow Less
The Styrian Armory in Graz is the world’s largest historic army, holding 32,000 pieces of weaponry, tools and suits of armor. Built between 1642 and 1645, the armory stood on the front lines for Austria’s battles with the Ottoman Empire and Hungarian rebels for the next few centuries. One of the most visited of the dozen museums that comprise the Universalmuseum Joanneum, the Armory features exhibitions on four floors, arranged in a way reminiscent of a 17th century arsenal. On the first floor, visitors will find cannons, mortars and muskets from the 16th to 18th centuries, while the second floor focuses on helmets, suits of armor and pistols. The third floor shows off more armor, including German-made armor and equestrian armor for nobles. Finally, the fourth floor is home to staff weapons such as morning stars, halberds and pikes used by foot soldiers, as well as swords and sabres once used by horsemen.
The Styrian Armory is located in Graz’s Inner City, just a few steps from the Hauptplatz (Main Square). Get there by taking the tram to the Hauptplatz/Congress stop or by taking a bus to the Busbahnof, just a few block away. There are no signs or text accompanying the exhibitions, but visitors can rent an audioguide or take a guided tour, offered in English daily at 1pm.
