Austria’s Second Intercityhotel Opens In Graz
Now open – 229 Rooms
The hotel features a modern and comfortable interior design by the Italian architect Matteo Thun and thus fits in perfectly with a city which is well known for its major creative scene. Graz is one of UNESCO's designated Design Cities, a status which means it forms part of an international Creative Cities Network. It has numerous museums, galleries and festivals as well as being home to four universities and two Universities of Applied Sciences which offer courses of study in disciplines such as Industrial Design, Information Design, Media and Interaction Design and Exhibition and Museum Design.
"Kunsträume" at the IntercityHotel Graz
The photographic art project "Kunsträume" ("Art Rooms") came into being following the conclusion of a cooperation agreement with Bielefeld University of Applied Sciences. Works by young artists with local links are now being displayed at selected hotels which operate under the IntercityHotel brand. The IntercityHotel Graz will form the backdrop for images by Simon Grunert and Georg Barbe, whose exhibition entitled "Traces" takes a photographic look at Graz and Styria and invites observers to consider the city and the region from their perspective.
