    House of Luegg

    by dcwizard Written Mar 16, 2004

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The house at the corner of the Sporgasse and the main square is beautifully decorated with baroque stucco and owes its peculiar name (House of Luegg) to the German "ums Eck lugen" (to peer around the corner). If you take a closer look at the designs on the building, you'll see masks and faces in its walls.

    Luegghaus

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The old core of Graz, with its architecture, look alike more to the northern Italian cities rather then central European city. I have found here alots of simmilarities with Bolzano or Belluno even with Verona.
    Luegghaus is one of the most attractive building in whole of Graz, it is situated at the corner of the Main Square and Sporgasse. In fact, its name ranslated in english says "house at the corner". It has nice looking porticoe at the basement and very attractive stucco-woks all over facades. Night-time snaping, while the building illuminated, makes it even more attractive.

    Sporgasse inner-court

    It is said "the couriosity killed the cat " but in this case it was reworded. I was strolling and exploring the famous Sporgasse, one of the most attractive streets of Graz which is leading from the Main Square up to the Castle Hill. Passing by I noticed the doorway of an building at nr. 22 half-openned and this staircase which immediately caught my attention. Being courious sometimes isnt bad at all.

    The buildings of Sporgasse hug the base of the Schlossberg. Wandering down this narrow lane along the rows of beautiful old houses and shops, it's not surprising to learn that this is the oldest street in the city. In fact it even predates the city itself, existing at least as far back as Roman times, when the street formed part of a road stretching from the Mur to the Roman town of Savaria. The street takes its name from the spur (spor) makers who used to ply their trade their centuries ago.

    Today it is a bustling shopping street, with some of the best shops and restaurants in the city.

    Leugghaus is located withon Hauptplatz, and its very easily recognisable thanks to its very striking facade. Its located at the corner of Sporgasse.
    Pay close attention to the intricate detail, making the facade of this building very striking and worth seeing!

    Sporgasse is where the life...

    Sporgasse is where the life is, one could say. One of the most picturesque streets in the Old Town is the location of many shops, cafes, restaurants and the like. If there aren't many people on Sporgasse, it probably means that all Graz is somewhere on holidays. But that's never the case, I think!

    This famous little sculpture looks from under the roof in Sporgasse down to the people. It tells about the battle with Turks in the history.
