Besides enjoying the event in the ice rink you will have the chance to explore the second biggest city of Austria with its 280.000 residents. Graz is well-known for its outstanding hospitality, a lovely landscape, historic buildings and – last but ot least – excellent Austrian cuisine and viniculture.

From the famous "Uhrturm" on the castle hill to the so called "Murinsel", dreamy alleyways and noble houses from the Wilhelminian era on one side, futuristic buildings designed by international starchitects on the other - Graz offers a great variety of things to discover on very short distances.

The spectacular construction was designed by New York artist Vito Acconci in 2003.
