The Kunsthaus Graz aka the “Friendly Alien” with its unique architectural concept and outstanding exhibitions is always with a visit. It was built in 2003 and has been an upgrade to the landscape of the city with its unusual style ever since. The façade facing the river Mur is the most exciting aspect of the design: the BIX façade. You can see the huge display clearly from the Schlossberg. The display shows animations of artists, personalised messages and more.
The Kunsthaus displays contemporary art. The exhibitions are only available for two to six months, so make sure to visit the museum regularly. After your visit, you can relax and treat yourself to some snacks in the Kunsthauscafé, which has a hip and fun atmosphere.
