Psalm ist the Easter festival by the house of styriarte, the little sister of the summer festival. It’s almost always about the theme of the season – death and resurrection, the awakening of nature in spring. And, same as with the religious celebrations in this season, there are interferences of much older rituals; PSALM is always about the encounter between different cultures, and about everything new arising from such an encounter.

event-Long Table of Graz

Long Table of Graz

Unfortunately due to the impact of the Corona crisis we had to postpone the "Long Table of Graz" from August 21, 2021 to August 20, 2022. We would not have been able to fulfill the high expectations of this event this year. The tickets will remain valid until next year. If you have purchased your ticket already no actions from your side are needed, this will be your ticket for 2022. Also, if you have booked a Long Table Package through our office, this package will remain its value for 2022.


We ask for your understanding that there are currently no tickets available for the date on August 20, 2022. The event is sold out. 


If you have any further questions please feel free to contact us at info@graztourismus.at.


On August 20th 2022, the historic centre of Graz will turn into a giant open air restaurant. Just imagine sitting down at a festively decorated table and enjoying a delicious dinner with matching wines and musical entertainment, with another 750 guests for company in the heart of the old town. The evening starts at the atmospheric Landhaushof, where you will enjoy a commentated beer and wine tasting accompanied by little amuse bouches.


You will then be shown to your seat at a beautifully decorated Long Table. The Chefs of the participating Restaurants are planning a five course dinner, and their wine-chefs will guide you through an exclusive set of accompanying wines. Enjoy the dinner and the music. It will be, without no doubt, a completely unique experience.
