Culture in Graz

Graz theatre

The second great venue for high culture in Graz is the Graz theatre. Apart from the main stage with more than 550 seats, there are also performances on smaller stages, like the rehearsal stage (ca. 100 seats) and the “Ebene 3” (ca. 50 seats). Special offers for premieres or New Year's Eve performances make your Graz visit unforgettable! 

Classical concerts at the Stefanisaal

The Stefanisaal in Graz is one of the world's most beautiful venues and has one of the best acoustics, which is also appreciated by famous conductors like Nikolaus Harnoncourt. The Stefanisaal is, like the Helmust-List Hall, the Eggenberg Castle and the Stainz parish church, one of the venues for the styriarte-festival. Spend a wonderful concert evening during your weekend trip in Graz. 

Graz venues

Fans of alternative plays should visit Graz venues like the Orpheum, the Dom im Berg and the Kasematten Schlossberg Stage. Innovative, extraordinary, crazy and borderline performances delight the audience in these venues, which offer an alternative to the classic culture programme.
