Active in & around the city

Although Graz is Austria’s second-biggest city, it’s anything but impersonal. The Styrian capital’s “signature colour” is green, which dominates the Styrian coat of arms as well as the region’s traditional costumes.

Green is also the predominant colour in the city itself, with 68 per cent of urban spaces being parks, gardens and forests.
