Mausoleum of Ferdinand II

Recommended
The magnificent Mausoleum of Emperor Ferdinand II is undoubtedly Graz's most unusual building. It gracefully combines Mannerist Austrian Baroque with the theatrical splendour of Rome's great churches. The initial work of the Italian Pietro de Pomis was completed by the stuccowork and fresco decoration of Graz's own Fischer von Erlach. A beautiful oval dome adorns the funerary crypt, dominated by a great red-marble sarcophagus.
