Went to see this just because it is so unique. There is an amphitheater and a coffee shop/bar in the Murinsel and the views are wonderful. At night, the Murinsel puts on a light show, changing colors from blue to green, yellow, red, pink and...More

During our city walk we visited also the so called Murinsel. Nice to see this art object but sitting in the restaurant is not cosy.

We walked across this bridge in the day and walked back in the night to see it lit up. There is a cafe, restaurant and shop based on the middle of the bridge. Good photo opportunities. Very unusual

This floating island in the Mur River must have been quite a technical challenge but frankly it seems rather meaningless. I though it was more satisfying to stand up on the street footpath and look down on the structure rather than to ride the elevator...More

Along with the Kunsthaus (Contemporary art museum), this sci-fi bridge/restaurant/bar is striking out from Graz classicism. It's a great, modern pedestrian bridge, with a small amphitheater in the middle of Mur river. There's indoor and outdoor seating, and it was very relaxing to cool down...More

If you're going to cross the river anyway, you might as well cross on the Murinsel, a neat island that they built in the middle of the river. It's an interesting architectural structure, and there are some shops and a cafe open during the summer.

Well it sits on the river, LOL! But seriously it is a modern contraption in the middle of an old city. While the shops are closed this time of the year it provides access from one side of the river to the other. It can...More

Seems its closed in winter, or at least when we visited Graz..they turn on a few lights at night and it looks neat over the river at night, but the walkway is closed off. During the day it looks a bit dreary and industrial..I'm sure...More
