Graz has seen another green space open up in the last 12 months. The Augartenbucht is a peaceful retreat in the Augarten Park on the banks of the Mur river.
The Augartenbucht (‘Augarten Bay’) is an area for relaxation on the promenade along the water in the capital of Styria. It offers freshly-planted trees and shrubs, meadows, benches, loungers and a view of the water near the centre of Graz.
The area has been designed for visitors to sit or lie on furniture, on the lawn or under the trees and children can play undisturbed.
However, the Mur is not suitable for bathing at this point. The nearby Augartenbad swimming pool is a better option for those who fancy a dip.
