Located in the middle of the Mur River in Graz’s Old Town is the Murinsel, an artificial floating platform. Built on the occasion of Graz being granted the role of European Capital of Culture in 2003, Murinsel is now a landmark of Graz. This man-made island offers visitors a completely new perspective of the city. The 47-meter-long structure is known for its unique architecture which resembles a large upside-down seashell. It is connected to the banks of the river by two footbridges. Murinsel houses a unique amphitheater in its middle section, as well as a playground for kids and a café. The three-dimensional rope maze, along with the fun slide found here will allow adults to enjoy a great meal at the café while watching the river water rushing by.
