The cultural treasures of Styria

Culture and the arts play an important role in all regions of Styria. In addition to internationally renowned UNESCO World Heritage Sites and countless excursion destinations, small towns and their long history full of special traditions invite visitors to go on a journey of discovery. The design capital Graz boasts a flourishing cultural and creative scene that skilfully combines the tried and tested with the contemporary. A variety of events and festival series such as "Kulturgenuss im Grünen" (cultural enjoyment in the open air) spice up every season.

Speaking of seasons: Authentic customs and folk culture come to life all year round in the green heart of Austria. They're expressed, for instance, in traditional costume fashion, folk music as well as arts and crafts. If you want to take Styria home with you, you can do so at farmers' markets, in traditional costume shops or in design shops. That's where you can find special products ranging from authentic dirndl fabric to design objects.
