Graz Armoury (Zeughaus)

Highly recommended
Behind the walls of a prestigious-looking palace and forerunner of German Baroque, the Graz Armoury has the only arms collection of its kind in the world, presented with neither order, nor explication (get an audioguide). You are projected three centuries into the past, when the city was an outpost of Christendom, holding out against the Turks. Over 32 000 ancient weapons, including spears, halberds, arquebuses, pistols, muskets are suspended in time here, alongside impeccably maintained armour.
