History

Located above the roofs of the old town, within the walls of the former fortifications

Directly below the highest point of the Styrian capital, the “Schlossbergplateau”, you will find the outdoor stage in the former casemates.
In the former moat of the fortress at the Schlossberg in Graz was built around 1578 the captain’s house, whose huge cellar vaults were intended to hold inventories, but were also used as a prison. The present-day open-air stage was established in the ruins of this building, destroyed in 1809, and opened in 1937 with Beethoven’s “Fidelio”.

The atmospheric ambience and the romantic atmosphere are especially evident in the warm season of open-air events of all kinds, from concerts such as jazz, pop, rock and classical music through summer parties, company presentations and gala events.
In 1987, the stage was added a mobile roof by the architects Gilly and Jörg Mayer, which allows the organization of events in any weather.
In 2009, there was a general renovation of the venue. The stage was moved from west to east side and reduced in size.
