DID YOU KNOW...?

I'll be back!

The famous American actor and politician Arnold Schwarzenegger is originally a native of Styria. He lifted his first weights in Thal bei Graz where he was born.

A quirk of time

There is something odd about the hands on the face of the clock tower in Graz, the Styrian capital’s landmark. The short hand shows the minutes instead of the hour. That might seem strange, but there is a simple reason behind it. Originally, only one hand existed for showing the hour — and it was the long one.

The Black Gold

When Styrians talk about gold, they don’t necessarily have a precious metal in mind. What they are referring to is Kürbiskernöl (pumpkin seed oil) — Styria’s black gold. A culinary delight of the region that goes especially well with salads!

And the Oscar goes to ...

What’s behind the surname of the Oscar-winning Hollywood director Steven Spielberg? His ancestors lived in the Styrian city and today’s Formula One hub Spielberg.

Styria and the Nobel Prize

The only Austrian to be awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature is Elfriede Jelinek. She has her roots in Mürzzuschlag..

1 : 705

1 : 705 — That is the ratio between Styrians and trees! Carpeted in around 880,000,000 trees, Styria is the perfect place to take a deep breath.
