About

The largest preserved armoury in the world is among the most popular tourist attractions in Graz and reminds us of a conflict-ridden chapter in Styrian history. The Styrian Armoury was created in turbulent times: From the 15th to the 18th century, Styria many times had to fend off attacks by the Ottoman Empire and Hungarian rebels. Built in 1642–44, the armoury served for around 100 years as the ‘central arsenal’ for simple infantrymen and soldiers on horseback. Today it is a memorial and museum at the same time: some 32,000 arms and weapons are on display in the Styrian Armoury in their historical layout.
