Art lovers tend to display an uncompromising dedication to individualism and the pursuit of a vision. The Augarten Art Hotel designed by star architect Günther Domenig is as surprising as it is unusual. Contemporary art, furniture by A. Thaler and unique designer pieces by more than 200 artists await its guests. The design hotel boasts more than 51 rooms all furnished with high quality works of art, 5 spacious and fully furnished apartments, as well as a new penthouse built in 2011. Among the special features of this modern business hotel are the Business Corner and the 24-hour spa with a heated indoor pool, sauna, gym and relaxation area. At the same time, the Augarten Art Hotel boasts a summer terrace with stunning views over the rooftops of Graz all the way to the Schlossberg.
Penthouse 601 offers an indescribably beautiful, light-flooded 80 sqm apartment above the rooftops of Graz. Elegant interiors and contemporary art stand at eye level with the clock tower - the symbol of Graz.
GRAZ IS CITY OF DESIGN. NO OTHER HOTEL IN THE STYRIAN CAPITAL SHOWS MORE OF THIS SPIRIT.
In 2012 UNESCO announced that the city of Graz had become a member of the international Creative Cities Network, thus officially joining the ranks of those cities with a particularly strong forward-looking orientation. Only nine other cities in the world can call themselves a “City of Design”, among them, Berlin, Montreal and Buenos Aires. In Graz this is not just exemplified by the spectacular buildings that have been erected in recent years – such as the Kunsthaus, Mur Island, MUMUTH, Botanical Gardens, MP09 and the university buildings – but in particular by the enormous creative potential in a wide range of disciplines – from art to commerce, fashion to technology.
