Graz
After Vienna, Austria’s second-biggest city is Graz, and it holds a position on UNESCO’s list of ‘Cities of Design’. One of the cultural attractions that Graz has to offer is the site of the region’s provincial armoury. This is of cultural th interest as it has been standing since the mid-16 century, and, with over 32,000 pieces, has one of the best preserved (and largest) collections of Baroque armaments in the world. The “Old Town” of Graz is perhaps one of the better-preserved city centres in Europe, which may be a reflection of its listing as a UNESCO World Cultural Heritage Site (1999). 2010 saw this site extend to include Schloss Eggenberg. Further accolades include possession of the 2003 title of European Capital of Culture, and the title of City of Culinary Delights in 2008.
Alte Galerie, Schloss Eggenberg, Universalmuseum Joanneum In Southeast Austria, the most noteworthy Baroque Palace to be found is Schloss Eggenberg. It is this formidable building which plays host to the Alte Galerie, and is considered to be foremost of the most valuable Austrian cultural assets. The decision to add Schloss Eggenberg as an extension to the listing of “Old Town” Graz as a UNESCO World Cultural Heritage Site (2010) was as recognition of its significance to Austrian cultural history. Schloss Eggenberg is located to the west of Graz, in the Austrian state of Styria. Within the palace grounds and buildings the Planetary Garden, the Archaeological Museum, the Numismatic collection, and the collection of the Alte Galerie can be found. The collection of the Alte Galerie covers five centuries of European art, from old masters from the Middle Ages to th the end of the 18 century. Works from the Renaissance, Mannerism era, and the late Baroque are showcased in the early modern period section of the show collection. In addition, the collection includes numerous hand drawings and print graphics from 1500 until the end of the 1700s.
