Austrian Sculpture Park

10:00-20:00



When art and nature combine, the stories they spin constantly change in the course of the seasons. Gardens may be structures designed by human hand but they grow quite naturally. Gardens enter into a relationship with outdoor sculptures that are completely exposed to the elements. A distinctive aesthetic and artistic vocabulary begins to emerge in the dialogue between site and sculpture—one in which dreams become visible and spaces are created for poetic encounters.

Situated seven kilometres to the south of Graz, the Austrian Sculpture Park has become an established centre of contemporary sculpture ever since it was founded in 2003. This fascinating park, designed by landscape architect Dieter Kienast, covers an area of some seven hectares and provides a ‘developmental space’ for over 60 sculptures. Works by renowned Austrian artists from Fritz Wotruba and Franz West right through to Erwin Wurm, Heimo Zobernig and Michael Kienzer communicate here with examples of international sculpture from the likes of Jeppe Hein, Nancy Rubins, Tobias Rehberger and Susana Solano.

The Guardian listed us in the top 10 of the best sculpture parks in Europe!
