VenueEdit

Stadthalle Graz is the biggest arrangement hall in Graz, Austria. It was built between April 2000 and in the beginning of 2002.

Stadthalle Graz which is pursued by fair Congress Betriebsgmbh stands on the place of the former hall 1 of the Grazer fair. Between 1998 and 1999 the architecture competition was carried out for the town hall. Architect Klaus Kada received in December 1999 the surcharge for it. On maximum 14,000 ms ² expandable hall exists of upper floor and first floor. The hall practically free of columns stands only on four basic columns which are in every corner of the hall. In 2009 it hosted Robocup. It was already a place for numerous arrangements as for example Wetten, dass..? or Musikantenstadl. On 16 November 2007 the music event The Dome took place for the first time with his 44th issue in the Grazer town hall.

LocationEdit

Graz (German pronunciation: [ˈɡʁaːt͡s], formerly known as Gratz, is the second-largest city in Austria after Vienna and the capital of the federal state of Styria (Steiermark). On 1. January 2015 it had a population of 309,323 (of which 276.526 had principal residence status). In 2012 the population of the Graz Larger Urban Zone who had principal residence status stood at 599,049.

Graz has a long tradition as a student city: its six universities have more than 44,000 students. Its "Old Town" is one of the best-preserved city centres in Central Europe.[citation needed]

Politically and culturally, Graz was for centuries more important for Slovenes than Ljubljana, the capital of Slovenia, and still remains influential.

In 1999, Graz was added to the UNESCO list of World Cultural Heritage Sites, and the site was extended in 2010 by Schloss Eggenberg. Graz was sole Cultural Capital of Europe for 2003 and got the title of a City of Culinary Delights in 2008.
