Dom im Berg
Due to its unique architecture the Dom im Berg is probably the most original venue in Graz. It is located right in the heart of the old town of Graz inside the Schossberg.
The idea to build a multi-functional art space inside the rock, was implemented in 1999 and opened at the National Exhibition in 2000.
A total area of 733 square meters and a height of 11 meters provide the perfect space for diverse events, from concerts of all styles over meetings, balls, theatrical performances, to clubbing, complex corporate presentations and customer receptions.
This venue is located inside the tunnel system of Schlossberg and situated close to Dom im Berg. The old galleries had been used to exhibit artwork of the “Mountain of Memories” in 2003.
The Location is divided into two parts: The entrance area with a comfy launche to chill out and the rear, where one can directly dunk into the soundcloud.
International platform for production and representation in the areas of phenomenology, cultural techniques, reflexion, construction, expression and rock.
Address: Stadtpark 1, 8010 Graz
The Orpheum, located in the middle of the up-and-coming Graz art and design quarter "Lend", has a very specific flair.
This results from the mixture of the sixties equipment of the foyer with the most current programs from the domestic cabaret and the international pop / rock scene.
Opened in 1899 as a variety theater "Orpheum", it was later cinema, then the Graz "House of Youth". Even today, the Orpheum attracts audiences of all ages. The unique is the in-house program, which is explicitly aimed at a young audience.
An imperial place of rest next to the Dom. Turquoise domes stand out against the blue sky above the Mausoleum and, together with the Dom and Katharinenkirche church, define one of the city’s magnificent views. You could almost have been whisked away to the lands to the south, given how this ensemble enchants any visitor with more than just a hint of Florentine flair. Here in Graz, Emperor Ferdinand II had his court artist Giovanni Pietro de Pomis lay out the impressive tomb.
Directly below the highest point of the Styrian capital, the plateau of the Schlossberg, is the most popular outdoor venue in Graz, the Schlossbergbühne Kasematten.
In the old walls of the former fortifications, a stage was erected as early as the 1930s, with a spacious auditorium that is particularly characteristic of Graz. The atmospheric ambience and the romantic atmosphere are especially evident in the warm season of open-air events of all kinds, from concerts such as jazz, pop / rock and classical music through summer parties to company presentations and gala events. A sliding roof secures the passage even in case of bad weather.
The Kasemattenbühne was completely renovated in 2009 and shines in new splendor.
Located right underneath the Clocktower (Uhrturm), the Uhrturmkasematte is a small cave and a very impressive venue. The floor is dirty and rocky and the walls remind you of a medieval prison. The entrance can be through the elevator inside of the mountain, which has an extra stop at the Uhrturmkasematte, or through steps down right next to the clocktower.
